From its conception, 10up has worked with vital publishers and content creators to improve storytelling across the web. This week I’m in Columbus, Ohio to participate in the third annual WordCamp for Publishers—a conference bringing together content creators using WordPress to manage and grow publications of all sizes. Thursday, I’ll be delivering the lightning talk “#NoStalking,” about the challenges of delivering advertising that drives revenue but also respects user privacy.

Supporting Higher Education at WPCampus 2019

WPCampus 2019 Logo

Every year, 10uppers across the globe volunteer, speak at, and organize dozens of industry events. Whether its a local WordCamp or national jsConf, a niche conference like Write the Docs or an expansive one like CMS Expo, we make the time to give back to open-source and share our expertise.

Given our portfolio of client projects and partnerships in higher education, we’re thrilled to once again be a part of WPCampus, a three-day conference dedicated to the confluence of WordPress in higher education, taking place July 25-27, 2019 at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.

Presenting at Remote Future Summit

Brad Miller presents How to Be Successful in a Remote Job and Company at Remote Future Summit.

The best talent isn’t found in a single zip code and an international clientele requires a global perspective. Independence from traditional “brick and mortar” offices, freedom from commutes, and flexible schedules across nearly a dozen time zones mean we work when and where we’re most inspired and are available when our clients need us. At 10up, we’re advocates for remote work and know how to make it succeed for the company and the individual.

Klein News Innovation Camp, Web Summit, WordCamps, and Other Recent 10up Talks

Service (to our clients, our colleagues, and our communities) is one of 10up’s core values, and one way we see that value made concrete is in sponsoring and speaking at various conferences connected to WordPress, content publishing, and generally making the web a better place.

This fall has been especially busy – so much so we’ve neglected to share updates here.

Upcoming:

Gabe Karp, 10up’s Business Director in Europe, will be speaking next week at Web Summit 2017 in Lisbon. The “largest tech conference in the world,” WebSummit brings 25 different conferences together in one physical space over 4 days. Gabe will be part of a Marketing Technology panel in the Growth Summit track on Nov. 7th

10up is excited to sponsor Klein News Innovation Camp (formerly Barcamp News Innovation), an open, unconference style event being held at Temple University in Philadelphia on November 4th, focused on the future of news and how we can improve communities and conversations across the web. I’m looking forward to participating personally – let me know on twitter (@jeckman) if you’ll be there as well.
