It might be the middle of summer and just about smack dab in the dog days of August, but the StickerGiant Sponsorship team isn’t slowing down one bit. We have two top-notch events this weekend, one WordCamp (an old favorite) and Design4Drupal Boston (a new favorite).
Design4 Drupal Boston 2015
For this week’s opener, we have a slightly different technology event out of Boston. Design 4 Drupal is an annual web design camp covering all aspects of design, UX, & theming for Drupal websites. It takes place at, get this, the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge, MA. NERD in this case stands for: New England Research and Development Center.
Going on six years now, this annual gathering brings together hundreds of designers, coders and site administrators, all who enjoy sharing ideas and inspiration. The best takeaway from this is that attendees earn new techniques for Drupal design and theme development from each other and super talented speakers.
At StickerGiant, we run our our website on Symfony, which borrows some tech elements Drupal, to make everything run smooth for our online customers, so we figured we’d sponsor and show this community some appreciation.

WordCamp Fayetteville 2015
WordCamp Fayetteville will take place from July 31 through August 2, 2015, at the Donald W. Reynolds Center for Enterprise Development on the University of Arkansas campus. As with the countless other WordCamps we sponsor, #WCFay features a great list of fellow sponsors.
For folks at WordCamp Fayetteville boast that everyone is welcome (and they mean it), which means if you read WordPress blogs, use WordPress for your own blog or want to learn more about building with WordPress, this is the event for you to attend. If you want to network with the Northwest Arkansas tech and business communities, WordCamp Fayetteville is the place to be.
This year’s edition features five tracks, which we’ve listed from the WordCamp Fayetteville Sessions page:
- WP101: Have you just bought the car or are you thinking about it? Learn how to install your theme, choose between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, and get started.
- Developers: Getting under the hood Don’t plan to attend these sessions unless you actually code WordPress sites, apps, or plugins.
- Designers: Jazzing up the chassis Some WP designers are more about the art and some also like to code their themes. Either way, this track offers inspiration.
- Publishers: Delivering the goods Bloggers, writers, and other content mavens belong in this track.
- Entrepreneurs: Driving the car, not messing with the motor — and you mean business If your company website is built in the WordPress platform, this is the track for you, whether you work in WordPress or delegate that work.
That’s quite a bit of awesome content to pick up and learn, so find a away to get to this WordCamp, or find one (or organize one!) near you. Not gonna lie the After Party at Hawaiian Brian’s sounds like a blast. Apparently they have a giant Jenga set, and we love games.
