Celebrating 20 Years of WordPress at WordCamp US 2023

Last week, the Jetpack team joined the WordPress community for WordCamp US 2023. It was exciting to be so close to our nation’s capital in a picturesque setting like National Harbor. As Super Admin sponsors, we were honored to contribute to this unforgettable celebration of the open source project. It’s one of our favorite events of the year — an opportunity for us to connect with friends and colleagues in the community and share the latest exciting developments in Jetpack.

Empowering WordPress Agencies

We were thrilled to show off Jetpack Manage and our Agency program at WordCamp US. Our mission is to democratize multi-site management, enabling WordPress agencies to remove the tedium and focus on what they do best — providing excellent service to their clients.

We spoke to agencies that manage hundreds of WordPress sites, as well as freelancers who maintain just a handful. The response was rewarding to experience in person. We gave demos of the dashboard and showed off the power of bulk managing plugin updates, uptime monitoring, malware threats, backups, and stats. You can see what they saw and try it for free right now.

Using AI to Enhance Your Productivity

AI has been the buzz for the last year and it wasn’t any different at WordCamp US. To complement an excellent workshop on using AI to enhance the creative process, Jetpack presented its AI tools that help people improve their productivity.

We’ve previously announced that the Jetpack AI Assistant can help you improve your writing directly in the WordPress editor. Change your tone, get suggestions to improve your writing, translate to other languages, and more.

And as a first step in automating site building, now the AI Assistant can help you build custom forms quickly for even the most specific use case.

Personalized Swag

The only thing better than WordCamp swag is personalized WordCamp swag. We had people on site to engrave power packs. Wherever you go, this little Jetpack will make sure you don’t run out of juice.

A Night to Remember

The WordCamp concluded with a social event at the magical Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. It was amazing to be surrounded by such natural beauty along with so many of our friends and colleagues.

Our Jetpack is Fueled by the People

Beyond showcasing what’s new in Jetpack, WordCamp US 2023 was an opportunity for us to listen, learn, and engage with the WordPress community. The conversations were truly inspiring, and we are grateful to everyone who took the time to connect with us.

We left National Harbor with a sense of excitement and gratitude. Being part of WordCamp US 2023 reminded us once again of the incredible power of WordPress and the remarkable community that supports it. As we return to our homes across the globe, fueled by the energy you can only find at WordCamps, we’re more committed than ever to create innovative solutions that empower website owners, agencies, and developers worldwide.
