St Louis, Missouri, has been home to an annual/bi-annual WordCamp event for some years now and this year we’re proud to announce that we were part of the action!
St Louis Web Design Solutions
In 2016, one of our own developers gave a talk targeted towards the development crown while our team made their rounds and manned an awesome sponsor table filled with swag. This year, as an in-kind sponsor, we loved designing and creating the official St. Louis WordCamp logo which could be seen on t-shirts, the official website, and on event signage. IQComputing offers a variety of St Louis web design services that benefit agencies, companies, and freelancers alike at all experience levels and in a broad range of disciplines. Graphic designers love having a partner that works behind the scenes to convert their PSD work into beautiful WordPress-powered sites while agencies enjoy the cost savings of a vendor that can build custom website both large and small and who answers the phone in four rings or less!
Swag & Giveaways
Part of the WordCamp experience to spark conversation and help build a community feel for anything WordPress. IQComputing pulled off an impressive display of swag including classic stress balls to laser pens (useful for pointing out key points in stellar meetings), and even a chance to win a custom plush Wapuu that adds grace, joy, and best practices to any desk. Our team members met some awesome attendees and even provided some insight into challenging WordPress questions, right on the spot! IQComputing’s own team member, Katelyn, had this to say about the event this year:
“WordCamp 2017 saw new speakers along with a few veteran speakers who delivered remarks on everything from best practices in SEO to taking time to recognize that mixing social interaction in with busy work schedules is essential to mental health. A great show of community as always!”
With such a strong turnout, it’s gratifying to see the WordPress website community in St Louis grow. Each year we love to see familiar faces as well as meet new ones!
About WordCamp in St Louis
The City of St Louis is evolving into a technology center in the Midwest so it makes perfect sense that WordCamp makes a visit each year. On Saturday, March 18, 2017, at Washington University, St Louis welcomed yet another amazing WordCamp session which included talks from around the United States. Washington University was the perfect place for the event with a large lecture hall and smaller spaces for speaker talks. This year’s speakers offered very diverse backgrounds that touched on all manner of tangential aspects of working with WordPress including marketing, search engine optimization, and creative aspects of working in the community. Lead by a great team of organizers including Jennifer Swisher, Aaron Graham, Joe McGill, and even some of our staff, WordCamp 2017 was a smashing success!
