hellodev at WordCamp US 2016

hellodev is excited to announce that it is going to be present at this year’s WordCamp US in Philadelphia, from Dec. 2nd to 4th, represented by our CTO, Marcel Schmitz. It will be an important participation for our company, where we will be able to connect with other people and companies from abroad, and also enjoy all the fabulous talks and bring all the knowledge acquired back to the company and co-workers.

This is also a bigger and bolder statement of our commitment towards WordPress and the community. Marcel is going to be available throughout the event to meet whoever is interested and wants to know a bit more about our work and contribution or just to talk about WordPress and thereby creating synergies.

We will take with us our two most recents apps related to WordPress, with the goal of letting people know about them and collect feedback to improve then further. They are WooManager, an app that enables you to control your WooCommerce online store, and hellosys (coming soon), an app where you can manage your WordPress install by updating plugins, WordPress code, get stats info on responsiveness, and other features.

You will be able to follow all Marcel’s activity through our website, Facebook or Twitter. At the end of the conference we will write a post about how it went and every single bit we learn from it. Stay tuned!

WordCamp Europe 2015 in Seville

WordCamp Europe 2015 in Seville

It was the first time that we at hellodev took part of a WordCamp Europe, this time around in Seville, Spain, for its third edition. We’ve been weeks before in Lisbon, also for the first time in our country’s version of the WordCamp.

The first immediate conclusion we can take is that it was a truly amazing event and that we were very lucky we could attend it. Not only for the quality of the speakers, the fabulous organization and the beautiful venue, but also because of the 1000+ attendees who made this years edition a very special one and enriched the event by enabling everyone to contact with people around the whole world.

As for the talks themselves, we bring home an enriched technical knowledge and were truly inspired by great developers, entrepreneurs and business managers, who shared their experiences and stories and gave us the chance to connect with them and asks questions and also share our own experience.

Some important announcements were made in Sevilla, like the plans for adding to WordPress’s core an e-commerce solution that will be the game changer for commercial sites, and also that WordPress is highly focused in making the platform the most secure platform in the world. It is now responsible for 28% of the Internet’s websites and those announcements are very exciting to hear.

At the end we are even more certain that WordPress is a winning platform with a great expansion rate and that isn’t going to stop anywhere near soon. We are very excited of the times ahead and are today even more capable of giving our clients the best solution for their business.
