#PN6 is a wrap.

Sally and I would like to thank all of you that joined us at #PN6 and hope to see those folks again soon that could not make it this year.

Another successful PN is in the books. During each event, we do our best to create a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere for our friends and colleagues to come together to learn, collaborate, and relax. Thank you for making possible the $10k contribution (+$5k from an attendee) to the Amphi Foundation who’s mission is a worthy one.

At Pagely, we have been given so much and we try to give back to everyone in the WordPress space by sharing knowledge and stories. This is our birthday month (hooray for 10yrs of managed WordPress hosting) and we’d like to give a bit more. On Sep 18th, we’re opening up our bottle, shirt, and hoodie warehouse to all (while supplies last). Be sure to let your coworkers know that they can get a piece of the action even though they weren’t at Pressnomics. Swag Request.

The PressNomics Podcast is live. Please give a listen and subscribe. New episodes each week.

Thank you to all attendees, speakers, and sponsors. Please do consider sharing your personal experiences at #PN6 via a blog post. We’d love to read it: trackback or comment this post with a link.

This PressNomics is the last PressNomics, just as each before was the last event – until it wasn’t. The quality of our event has always been more important to us than the frequency. If our hearts are not truly in it, there is no reason to do it.

Typically, Sally finds some inspiration in a meaningful conversation or meets someone new that leaves an impression on her and that provides the spark to start the planning process again. Until then, thank you for joining us.

Joshua and Sally Strebel

Final Speakers and the Solution Room

Our final 4 speakers for PN6 hail from team Pagely/NorthStack. Robert Rowley will share some security blunders he has seen in the wild and tips to protect your code, and your organization. Maura, Jeff, and Arman will each take a few moments to share some perspective from the inside of a hosting company working with clients to scale and grow their websites and business.

The Solution Room

We like to mix things up sometimes and this year we’re adding a new section to our schedule in the afternoon on both days. We will have some brilliant minds in the room together and we should take this opportunity to learn and share knowledge.

Have questions or a problem that your business is facing or you’re looking for advice? Questions will be asked by a moderator to the entire room and attendees will consider and answer. Please submit your questions here, and you may remain anonymous if you’d prefer.

Watch your inbox this week for specific event news and announcements. Safe travels and we’ll see you all soon.

A look back at opening videos

Each PressNomics we have crafted (had crafted) an opening video to open the event. In anticipation of PN5 lets take a look back.

PN1 – In this video, we wanted to highlight the awesome fact, that for an unproven idea, folks came from all over.  A lyric in the Outkast song is “All the players came from far and wide”.

PN2 – Easy peezy. Collaboration for the win.

PN3 – We struck a more confrontational tone, calling the community to arms to battle the nefarious drupal hordes

PN4- We really wanted to focus on the human/personal side of business.


Hope you enjoyed, See you in April for PN5 with a new video.
Thanks Sponsors!
