Thank YOU!

We are incredibly grateful to all of you for participating in the inaugural WordCamp of Hampton Roads. If not for the support and backing of our sponsors, we would not have been able to bring top-notch speakers for your sessions. And since no event is possible with the volunteers working with us behind the scenes, we cannot thank their help enough.

Now that we have hosted the first WordCamp for our area, we hope to see all of you back next year. For those who are curious about the photographs that were snapped during the event, they are being uploaded to our Slideshow page. Enjoy!

Many thanks again,
The Organizers of WordCamp Hampton Roads

Speaker Interview: Jared Beasley

Tim: What’s your WordPress “origin” story?

Around 2007 I gave up struggling building sites from scratch in Dreamweaver / trying to reinvent the wheel and discovered WordPress. The ease it took to get a site up and running quickly while maintaining the ability for deep customization had me like whoa. I haven’t looked back.

Tim: Whats your top 3 WordPress plugins? Why?

  1. Google Analytics Dashboard for WP – Simple yet robust enough
  2. Gravity Forms – I buy local 😉
  3. WooCommerce – Not because it delights, but because it sells

Tim: Whats your most proud achievement around WordPress?

Making an actual living off of it.

Tim: What do you want our readers to know about you?

When it comes to WordPress, I love learning and sharing what I’ve discovered. I’m very much looking forward to sharing some of those discoveries and hopefully glean some goodness from others as well.

Tim: Define yourself with one word.


Jared is talking about Optimizing WordPress for Photography at 3pm.
