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!
WordPress is one of the cornerstones of our agency. It’s not just the CMS we choose to build on; it’s our chosen community.
The people we meet at WordCamps are some of the best humans in the world. They’re nerds like us that like to geek out over APIs and page builders. They’re puzzle masters that pull up a laptop across from ours to review code. And they’re friends we want to kick back with at the end of the day, playing foosball or grabbing a beer.
When we built our business, we set out to create and maintain a culture shaped by intentionality. That culture has always included giving back to the open-source community. Collectively, our team members have given over 80 WordCamp talks, helped organize 14 WordCamps, and made countless contributions to Core Code, Core Team, .org Code, .org Support, and more.
Sponsoring this WordCamp isn’t just to get our logo on the signs around the conference. We’re sponsoring because we believe in the WordPress project, and more importantly, we believe in supporting the community behind it.
Plus we have to admit we have a soft spot for Minneapolis. Several of our team members live in the area and are heavily involved in the local WordPress community. WordCamp Minneapolis is a great opportunity for us to support our team and show how much we care and are invested in the community at the same time.
This upcoming weekend, you’ll spot Triberians throughout the conference who have helped plan and run the event (Michelle, Travis, & Nick), and our team members who are contributing as speakers (Reid, Travis, Michelle, & Jen). Swing by our table to say hi or catch one of us between sessions.
We’re ready to reconnect with old friends, make some new friends, and learn a thing or twentyninehundred from the sessions.
Over the past decade, Modern Tribe has established itself as the agency of choice for Fortune 500 companies, educational institutions, government entities, and well-funded start-ups.
In addition to specializing in large-scale WordPress deployments, we’re also committed to open source and excellent product design. We’re the team behind plugins like The Events Calendar, Event Tickets, The Image Widget, and GigPress.
Our plugins have been downloaded and loved by millions, including many folks here at WordCamp Minneapolis. Sponsoring this WordCamp is just one small way we like to give back to the community.
