WordPress allows users with no coding skills to develop even the most complex of websites. Originally a blogging solution, it has blossomed into the Internet’s leading website software, with close to 20% of the planet’s sites underpinned by the solution. It is supported by a community that develops commercial and non-commercial themes and addons that change the look, feel and functionality of a website. WordCamps are “informal community events, organized by local WordPress users” that are designed to enable the WordPress community to share its passion and expertise. WordCamp Ann Arbor 2016 will take place at the Michigan Rackham Graduate Building in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States on October 14-15, 2016.
“WordPress is the product of its community, and events like WordCamp Ann Arbor help bring that community together to celebrate WordPress and form lasting bonds of friendship,” explained Nexcess’ President and CEO, Mr. Chris Wells. “Our business is built around the fantastic work of the WordPress community, and we’re proud to support anybody that shares our mission of making the WordPress experience better.”Do you know of any other companies that are supporting the global OS communities?
