Thank you to SiteGround, a Platinum Sponsor, for supporting WordCamp Toronto 2017.
Sponsors truly make it possible to continue these informative, community-supportive, and inspirational conferences that take
place all over the world.
SiteGround’s mission is to be real craftsmen in what they do. Since 2004 they’ve been mastering the craft of forging complex technologies into simple, usable web hosting solutions. They strive to always deliver more than expected and do things most other companies consider impossible.
They were among the first hosting providers to introduce secure account isolation on shared hosting, back when most companies claimed it couldn’t be done. They started updating WordPress instances automatically in order to secure their WordPress clients long before the term “managed WordPress hosting” even existed.
What do they like most about WordPress? The opportunity to keep the web open and independent. They believe in giving clients the freedom to get crafty with their website design, and keep control of their content.
Being User Centered
Ramelina Baklayan, a SiteGround Event Coordinator, told me a story about a cab ride she took to one of the many WordCamps she attends. The cab driver asked her about how SiteGround operates. When she got to the point of mentioning WordPress, his face lit up. He was excited to share how he had started taking WordPress lessons, and was creating his own websites.
WordPress allowed him to create things he never thought possible.
WordPress is a powerful leader on the web. WordCamps are extremely important for sharing knowledge and solutions to common issues. Ramelina Baklayan from SiteGround puts it perfectly – “Each and every one at WordCamp has an amazing story to share, and something that you can take away”.
