Hey there Orange County! WP Engine is coming to hang out with you guys for your WordCamp. We’ll have some shwag to give away, and be looking to hang out with you guys and talk all things WordPress.
Before we get into all of that, WP Engine want to give a big thanks to all the organizers for their hard work putting this together. A big conference like this one takes a few months of prep work, and all of the organizers have done a fantastic job to make the whole event possible, and we’re grateful.
WP Engine is sending a couple of really awesome folks to the OC for the WordCamp: Ben Metcalfe, and Jason Cosper. Both of these guys are going to be attending the events and will be looking to talk to developers about their sites, maybe giving a few WordPress pointers, and definitely sharing stories about WordPress lore. They’ve both been part of WordPress since very early, and have some great stories to tell.
Both Ben and Jason will have free accounts for life to give out, along with T-Shirts and maybe some lanyards for everyone who can track them down and find them.
How to Spot Ben and Jason
- You’ll be able to spot Ben Metcalfe by his often orange hair, as well as his very cool British accent. Ben has been active with WordPress since it was called “B2,” and has unique insight into how the platform has become a global powerhouse. Follow Ben on Twitter @dotBen, to see what he’s up to.
- Jason Cosper’s beard should be back in full force, so look for the guy rocking WP Engine gear underneath a beard to find Jason. Jason has been developing since 1995, and on WordPress since 2005, and has become a WordPress specialist over the years. Follow Jason on twitter @boogah, to see where he’ll be!
