Before the summit was even announced, when I told Jared Smith from Bluehost about the idea I had for it, he immediately said they wanted to be a sponsor. They set aside a budget for it before there was a website, a date, or anything planned. I’d like to thank Jared and Bluehost for their generosity here as a sponsor at the Core Contributor level and at the multitude of other WordPress events they have supported.
If there’s anyone who doesn’t know, Bluehost is a hosting company located in Utah that offers a 1-click WordPress install and employs two developers earmarked as WordPress core contributors. Both of these contributors, Bryan Petty and Mike Hansen, will be attending the summit, and we’re hoping that Jared will be able to make it as well.
I’ll add their logo as soon as I can get the beta uploader to bend to my will. In the meantime, thanks, Bluehost!
