Now let’s head to the Pacific Northwest for WordCamp Seattle: Experienced. What is “experienced” in this case? (Note the nod to Seattle resident Jimi Hendrix’s album, Are You Experienced? We did.)

Well, this version of WordCamp is for season WordPress developers, and the conference track reflects that power user, with sessions all weekend focused on really ramping up WordPress development.

You can follow all of the action on Twitter at #wcsea.

SG Golden Circle

At StickerGiant, we have set clear goals for our business. Three years ago we sat down and looked at our business using the ‘golden circle.’ This philosophy is based on Simon Sinek’s book Start With Why Starting with why led us to our core concept that every sticker has a story. We hold this to heart and love to share with the world the stories we see day to day.  

Why.

StickerGiant helps people tell their stories, share their passions and get the word out about anything.

How. 

StickerGiant delights people with our great attitude, we impress them with our service and provide a product that thrills them.

What.

We make great stickers. We do it quickly, and we have fun together doing it.

Stay Fit with StickerGiant: Crossfit Sarajevo

Crossfit Sarajevo

Refugee at age eleven, Australian Army Officer for ten years, to crossfit owner back in his home country of Bosnia, Vedran Maslic is a walking example of perseverance. Vedran and his girlfriend Esin Saribatir are on a mission to make a difference through crossfit.

They started CrossFit Sarajevo in August 2014, the first of its kind in Bosnia. “Our vision is to use the first official box in Bosnia & Herzegovina to promote positive change within this community,” stated Vedran.

Why crossfit? Vedran and Esin were both introduced to crossfit while rehabilitating from injuries. Vedran from a double shoulder reconstruction and Esin from a series of wrist, shoulder and back injuries. They saw such great results in crossfit that they wanted to share it with others.

Crossfit Sarajevo is a not-for-profit business that’s purpose is to help empower and strengthen the community, and surrounding nations, to promote unity. “Unfortunately, there seems to be a global trend of politics dividing rather than uniting. One of the great aspects of Crossfit is that regardless of race, religion, gender or age, athletes look to support one another, recognizing their efforts and achievements,” expressed Vedran.

Vedran has been through a lot to get CrossFit Sarajevo started. Promotion has been a big area of focus utilizing their website, social media and stickers to spread the word. An interesting route was taken to get these stickers. Unfortunately, StickerGiant does not ship internationally but CrossFit Sarajevo got creative receiving stickers via Frank Jones, a U.S. diplomat supporting their business.

Vedran’s perseverance continues on as he follows his dreams, “Whether it be in sport, business or politics, we each have a role to play in promoting a supportive, inclusive and tolerant society.”

StickerGiant offers crossfits a great way to get started out with a free sticker deal.

Meet Up with CHIHTML 5

HTML 5 Meet Up

“Hello! How are you?” That’s all it takes to make the next handshake to learn a new fact, change a career or land a new client. Chicago HTML 5 hosted a meetup that brought like minded professionals together to discuss emerging web technologies at SXSW.

SXSW’s goal is to connect professionals and inspire them. In line for registration, grabbing a drink in a lounge, chatting before a session, or walking through downtown it can happen at anytime. Meet ups are fantastic for bringing like-minded people together. CHIHTML5 brought these people together at their Sunday meet up during the festival.

Organizer, Mattie T. Langenberg discussed “For me, the benefit is making connections and exposing the Chicago HTML5 Meetup’s community of developers, designers and UX professionals to SXSW attendees from all over North America and the rest of the world. In some cases it’s just hello and how do you do, but I’ve recruited speakers through the meetup and made contacts with other meetup organizers and tech companies interested in Chicago.”

CHIHTML5 laid out stickers on every table during the meetup. One by one those stickers were embraced and left on their individual journeys to land on lap tops, work spaces, computers, and notebooks.

Meetup with like minded professionals and make sure the experience travels with some custom branded stickers.
