Hey Chicago!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all for WordCamp soon! Participating and attending WordCamps is one of the best parts about being part of WP Engine, and we can’t wait to meet all of you. Whether you’re brand new to WordPress, or have committed code to WordPress Core, whether you’re a blogger or run a large organization that uses WordPress, WordCamp Chicago is going to be awesome for you!

WP Engine is proud to sponsor this WordCamp. In case you don’t know who we are and what we do, you can read on for a summary of our services. OR, you can talk to Tomas Puig or Mike Van Winkle, the awesome folks we’re sending.

Tomas is a veteran of the agency world, and is leading all of WP Engine’s marketing efforts. But, he has a background as a developer, and brings a lot of technical expertise along with his marketing chops.

Mike, or “Wink” as we call him sometimes, is a senior developer at WP Engine, who ran his own WordPress consulting business before joining the company to help build many of the features in the User Portal. He’s going to be around to answer your questions and talk shop all weekend.

What’s WP Engine you ask? Well, WP Engine is the premium provider of managed WordPress hosting. We have some of the fastest, most scalable WordPress hosting on the planet. In fact, most sites see a 2x-4x speed increase when they migrate to WP Engine from any other host. But best of all is our support staff. At WP Engine, you have the largest staff of WordPress experts helping you troubleshoot your plugins and themes.

We want to make sure you can focus on building something amazing with WordPress, not stress about whether your server will go down in the middle of the night!
