ServerBeach attended the Blog World & New Media Expo last week in Las Vegas Nevada. It was an awesome experience for the employees that attended and we learned quite a bit from the bloggers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.
Our very own Product Engineering Manager, Joe Rodriguez did a presentation with Barry from WordPress discussing how WordPress is able to handle the traffic it receives as well as the scalability and reliability from the ServerBeach side. I didn’t get a chance to speak to Barry until the last day we were there and it’s been a while since I had seen him back in our old ‘working side by side’ days but having the chance to talk to him was awesome. He’s doing wonders with his work and I’m very much impressed and proud to know him!
It’s been a few years since I last visited Las Vegas and man has it changed. Joe and I had so many plans to do this and that but by the end of the days work we were too tired to do anything but eat! We did walk around the strip for a while when we first arrived waiting to check into our hotels, but quickly realized how tired we were after getting up early to catch the flight out there.
All in all it was a great experience for us and we look forward to attending next years Blog World & New Media Expo!
