Howdy! Are you going to be at WordCamp US in Nashville, TN? We are!
Jetpack is a Printer’s Alley sponsor of the third annual WordCamp US, and this year we’re more excited than ever to connect with you. We’ll be on site on Friday, December 1 and Saturday, December 2 to talk about what’s new with Jetpack, answer your questions, and give away some exclusive-to-WCUS swag.
If you have a question about using Jetpack or feedback to share with us, we’ll have plenty of staff available to talk with you. We’ll also have a satellite table at a separate spot where you can get help setting up the plugin, upgrading your plan, or troubleshooting specific issues.
If you’ll be in Nashville this weekend, make some time in your schedule to chat with our team, pick up some swag, and learn about the latest and greatest Jetpack features. We look forward to seeing you!
Jetpack is once again a headline sponsor of WordCamp EU alongside WooCommerce. Our team can’t wait to answer your questions, help troubleshoot issues, or just have a quick tête-à-tête about any WordPress topic you can think of.
This year we’re also inviting you to attend four great workshops by our team members and to sign up to be the first to hear about a big announcement coming from Jetpack.
