The world’s #1 conference for cloud, hosting, and internet service providers returned to take over Europa-Park and the CloudwaysWordPress team joined in the festivities. Cloudways was on hand to lead one of the winning CloudFest Hackathon teams. Eight teams competed with Open Source projects and our team took home the prize for best presentation. The team created 10 new WP-CLI commands to improve security! In addition to the prize we also launched a website for our project and invite you to test our new commands or take part in the future of this project!
Cloudways CMO Santi Costa joined the WordPress team at CloudFest to give a keynote address about Edglility and to introduce the new Cloudways and Cloudflare partnership.
“Following a thorough evaluation, we’ve decided to partner with Cloudflare, the world’s current leading-edge development platform. The Cloudflare enterprise add-on sits atop our powerful Cloudways platform, and inherits all the attributes we are known for: unmatched performance, expert support, freedom of choice & simplicity.”
Jonathan Wold of Post Status moderated our Director of WordPress, Robert Jacobi, together with the co-founder of Extendify, Chris Lubkert, and CEO of WP Media, Jean-Baptiste Marchand-Arvier, on the topic: What is the value of the WordPress ecosystem.
The theme was not referring to the value expressed in the revenue generated by the WordPress ecosystem but the potential value of developing innovative products focused around 42% of the web user base. This lively and informative debate touched on community, developers, agencies, and even the folks who don’t realize that they are a part of ecosystem! We’re happy to say that this was one of the most well received and attended panels at CloudFest 2022.
The WordPress panel wasn’t the only nod to the WordPressCommunity; several other sessions and keynotes revolved around the beloved CMS. The event also saw its most prominent gathering of WordPress professionals in attendance, and we expect to see even more WordPress and the WP community next year.
