If you missed WP Engine DE{CODE} earlier this year due to time zone differences between the U.S. and Australia (or the wider Asia-Pacific region), we’ve got you covered!

We’re bringing DE{CODE} down under with an all-new, all-virtual, developer-focused event that kicks off on 8 September at 11 a.m. AEST | 9 a.m. SGT. Registration is completely free! 

Join us online as our global teams present a wide variety of content dedicated to helping developers build better WordPress experiences faster. You’ll learn from peers, industry experts, and WordPress community leaders about finding your strategic angle to move at the new speed of digital.

From new strategies for Headless WordPress and eCommerce to building sites faster with Local and custom Gutenberg blocks, to the massive, growing WordPress Economy, DE{CODE} APAC will provide fresh, relevant insights for WordPress veterans and newcomers alike. 

Check out the full agenda here, and for a preview of what to expect during the event, here’s a look at our keynote sessions:


The WordPress Economy & WP Engine Innovation 

Mark Randall, VP of Sales, APAC, WP Engine 

WP Engine undertook the first global study of the WordPress Economy and the results should energize all of us who participate in that economy. In short, WordPress is winning the web. This keynote will explore all of the incredible reasons why this is happening, and how WP Engine is rising to meet this opportunity with customer-inspired innovations that set the bar for powering your freedom to create with WordPress.


Fit For the Future 

Jason Cohen, Founder & CTO, WP Engine 

Rapid changes in the web ecosystem, a proliferation of mobile and web-enabled devices, and rising user expectations have accelerated the multi-faceted challenges brands and agencies must navigate to stay a step ahead of the competition. Learn how WP Engine’s platform, including our latest solution for Headless WordPress, Atlas, paves the way for digital innovation.


Website Performance Beyond Page Speed 

Amit Sion, Chief Revenue Officer, XWP 

Leo Postovoit, Head of Product Strategy and Partnerships, XWP 

XWP works with some of the biggest names in publishing and technology and believes that a better web means a more performant web. A good site is one that really serves a purpose— it’s fast, user-friendly, accessible, secure, and reliable. That’s why XWP views performance as a mindset that reaches beyond the code and into the product. 

This keynote presentation will cover what “performance” means to the different stakeholders in your organization, what tools teams like design and engineering can use to foster collaboration to collectively perform better, and why it’s more important than ever to think about your website performance and how to measure your success. 

After all of the sessions conclude, you’ll have the opportunity to network with other attendees and talk to sponsors and speakers from the event, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding of their presentations. 

Finally, make sure you stick around for the grand finale—a Kahoot! trivia game that will test your general knowledge as well as your WordPress acumen. Our top three winners will receive WP Engine swag sets. Don’t miss out on your chance to win!


The above is just a sample of what you can expect at DE{CODE} APAC, which will take place Wednesday, September 8  at 11 a.m. AEST | 9 a.m. SGT.
