After a year of anticipation and planning, SiteLock arrived in Nashville, TN for WordCamp US – ready to ‘beat hackers to the draw!’ We sponsored the event again this year, allowing us to meet many of the 1,702 attendees from all around the world. There were also 1,182 viewers who live-streamed the event, making the total attendee count a whopping 3,584!

Last week SiteLock deployed en masse eight members of our team to Philadelphia to begin preparations for the upcoming WordCamp US 2016 as both a sponsor and a thought leader for security in the WordPress community. This year the day before #WCUS was very special, not only because we got to flex our muscles hauling and setting up sponsor booth equipment, but because for the first time ever, Post Status organized the one-day conference Publish. The event focused on WordPress professionals was hosted within walking distance of the WCUS venue in Commerce Square at the heart of Philadelphia.
It was one year ago when we sponsored and attended our first WordCamp ever, the inaugural WordCamp U.S. Since then, we’ve sponsored camps throughout the world and SiteLock evangelists Logan Kipp and Adam Warner have racked up a lot of frequent flier miles attending over 40 camps. After the great time we had at the first #WCUS, we knew we would return, and return we did.
We were fortunate to be selected as a Commonwealth sponsor this year and with that, eight of us boarded planes from around the country and headed for Philadelphia. We were expecting big things, but we were not prepared for just how great it ended up being. Hundreds of t-shirts, Wapuu stickers and pins, and countless “We’ve Got Your Back” massages later, the interesting people we met and new friends we made at WordCamp US 2016 all made for an absolutely amazing time.
