Speaker: Sara Rosso

SaraRosso_2013We’re excited to welcome VIP Global Services Manager, Sara Rosso, from Automattic to speak at WordCamp Europe. Originally from California, Sara has spent the past 10 years living in Italy so she’s intimately familiar with the WordPress world on both sides of the Atlantic. Part of her job at Automattic is discovering VIP success stories and sharing them with the world, which is exactly what she’ll be doing at WordCamp Europe in her presentation, Why Big Brands Love WordPress.

WordPress now powers more than 18% of the top 10 million sites in the world, and some of the brands and enterprises using WordPress might surprise you! We’ll take a look at the latest sites which are pushing WordPress to new heights, the compelling reasons they decided to go with WordPress, and what they learned along the way. We’ll spend some time busting myths about WordPress as well as provide some great examples of powerful and beautiful sites using WordPress that will be interesting and useful for developers, designers, and users alike.
