Interview with SiteGround

This is a blog post from one of our sponsors. Be sure to visit all of our sponsors at the event and thank them for their support!

Why do you enjoy sponsoring/supporting WordCamps?

WordPress is extremely important for the web hosting industry as a whole. By sponsoring WordCamps we hope to humbly contribute to the growth of the community of the WordPress users. Of course, this also help us present our brand to many potential customer and partners.

Why do you like interacting with attendees/people at WordCamps?

WordCamps are a great opportunity to interact with many cool people that are open, easy-going and ready to share their experience with the other participants. We also meet many of our existing customers on these events. In a completely online business like ours, this is a great opportunity to talk to our users face-to-face and to even have a beer with them at the after party.

How your company is involved with WordPress (speaking, volunteering, core contributing, etc)?

For the last 3 years SiteGround has sponsored over 50  WordCamps, attended 30 of them and we had a speaker from our team on 15. People from our events team have also been involved on a volunteer base with the organization of the last two WordCamp Europe and several local events and meetups. We are also proud to have a very talented person, Ella Van Dorpe, whose work as a WordPress core committer is completely financed by SiteGround.

How has the WordPress community impacted your business?

As WordPress is the most popular application among our customers, the needs of the WordPress users shape to a great extent the characteristics of our service.

Do you have something cool you want our attendees to know/learn?

We will have some really cool stuff for all Minneapolis WordCampers on our both, so stop by and have a chat with Dimitar & Miroslav from our team!
