These offline, in-person experiences are crucial for keeping WordPress community members connected to each other.
For WordPress newbies, these events are a chance to learn from experienced users. For web designers & developers, these events are a chance to share their knowledge and potentially find new clients or business partners.
Makers of the web, unite at WordCamp US 2019
Are you building websites for others? You don’t need to be a coder, and you don’t need to do it full-time. If you’re helping clients get online, you’re a Maker of the web.
Makers of the web are everywhere. They’re in big cities and small towns and on the road as digital nomads. They’re working from home, coworking spaces and coffee shops. They’re connecting with each other online through Slack and Facebook groups, and offline through meetups and events like WordCamp US.
If you’re a Maker of the web, we want you to join us at WordCamp US 2019 in St. Louis.
We share a common purpose
If you’ve seen our ads, you know that we’re huge advocates for people who make their own way. This is a global community of everyday entrepreneurs who are on a journey to transform their big ideas into something real.
We’re here to help those entrepreneurs along their journey. But we also know that we’re not alone. If you’re a Maker of the web, we share a common purpose: helping people grow & succeed online.

What’s GoDaddy Pro doing at WordCamp US 2019?
We’ve attended every #WCUS since it kicked off in Philadelphia four years ago.
In 2016 we started covering the event on Twitter and recapping our experiences in follow-up blog posts:
- What you missed at WordCamp US 2016
- WordCamp US 2017 Recap: Gutenberg, Accessibility, and Wapuu — Oh my!
- WordCamp US 2018 recap: Our top 12 takeaways
Our team will be on the ground in St. Louis again this year, sharing highlights and takeaways from sessions.
But that’s not all we’re doing.
Take a selfie, win an iPhone 11 Pro
Photography played a huge role in our recent refresh and we want to share some of that magic with everyone at WordCamp US.
That’s why we’re turning the GoDaddy Pro booth into a photo booth.
We’ll have photographers hanging about, ready to take your picture.
It could be your new Twitter profile pic; a glamour shot for Insta; or a dramatic Facebook cover photo. The choice is yours…!
We’re also holding a draw for a new iPhone 11 Pro.
You can take fantastic photos whenever, wherever you want.

- Snap a selfie at our booth, or have one of our photographers take your picture

We’re also giving away collectible Wapuu pins. These can get you another entry in the draw:
- Wear the Wapuu pin with pride
- Find another person with a matching Wapuu pin
