SiteLock sponsored and attended WordCamp Boston 2017 this past weekend. It was our second year in attendance, and as expected, it was a great event! In this post, we share some of our experiences from the event, including a slight hiccup and how we overcame it.

This weekend I skipped on up to one of our Four Corners partners, Colorado, to attend WordCamp Denver. This year’s two-day #WCDenver took place at the Springhill Suites by Marriott in downtown Denver with two tracks, the Ballroom and the Events Lab. The venue’s proximity to the heart of downtown Denver made the walk an easy one to local cultural landmarks.
In what became a very WordPress weekend, I attended WordCamp Cincinnati the day after attending WordCamp Rochester. Like Rochester, this too was Cincinnati’s inaugural camp. #WCCincy took place Saturday and Sunday in the modern concrete-metallic-designed Tangeman University Center at the University of Cincinnati.
I had the pleasure of traveling to my home state of Michigan this past weekend to attend, and speak at, WordCamp Ann Arbor.
#WCA2 was one of the most uniquely scheduled WordCamps I’ve been to this year. I wasn’t surprised because I’ve gotten to know Kyle Maurer, Lead Organizer, over the past six months and his passion for the community and doing things creatively is obvious.
One example of this was the music selection that played at the afterparty event. It was comprised of jazz music from all the artists that each version of WordPress was named after. This was just one of “the little things” that the title of this post refers to.
After a yearlong hiatus, WordCamp Phoenix returned this past weekend with a vengeance. Over 400 attendees swarmed the Phoenix Convention Center to brush up on the latest WordPress news, learn new skills and network with fellow WordPressers.
#WCPHX was my third WordCamp and although I may be biased, it was my favorite yet! The event took place in the heart of downtown Phoenix and in true WordCamp form it felt like a home away from home. Our SiteLock team was proud to be a Master Builder sponsor and to take part in such an exciting event in our own backyard. We also debuted our very own SiteLock Wapuu, complete with sunglasses and a saguaro cactus.
I’m writing this while at the Raleigh-Durham International airport and although I’m anxious to get back home, leaving North Carolina feels different than most of my return trips from WordCamps.
I’ve just attended #WCRaleigh where I also presented “Curating Content in WordPress” and it was an excellent event.
Although I’ve never been to Raleigh before, for some reason it felt comfortable. It felt like home. Maybe this was because nature is all around, even in the heart of the city, and that reminded me of my home state of Michigan. Or, perhaps it was the people I met.
My last trip this September took me to Arlington, Texas for WordCamp Dallas / Fort Worth. The camp was hosted at the E. H. Hereford University Center of the University of Texas at Arlington and held three tracks: Blogger/Community, Business, and of course, Developer. We were particularly keen to sponsor and attend #WCDFW, in part because our friends Carrie Dils and Marc Gratch were two of the event organizers.
