For the second consecutive year, WordCamp US will be held in Music City, Nashville, Tennessee. WP Engine is proud to be a platinum sponsor for this year’s WordCamp. As usual, WP Engine will have a booth with fun swag and helpful personnel. After the acquisition of StudioPress, however, we are excited to include more additions and demos to our booth. With the impending release of Gutenberg and the global expansion and prevalence of WordPress, this is bound to be the most exciting WordCamp yet.

We love celebrating the success of WordPress, looking toward the future, and meeting members of the growing community. This year, WP Engine will sponsor a plethora of events, sessions, and parties, We look forward to seeing you next week in Nashville!

In conjunction with the launch of the Gutenberg editor, Genesis 2.8 will include features that allow you style, change, and control Gutenberg blocks as well as auto-load demo content. Genesis users will be empowered with more flexibility so that they can spend less time on configuration and more time on customization. Genesis and WP Engine experts will be there to walk you through the demo and answer any questions you have.
