Speaker Profile: Jake Goldman

Phoenix WordCamp is happy to announce a true rockstar presenter: Jake Goldman

Just in case you didn’t know…Below is more about Jake.

Jake has been building websites since the mid 90’s, and has built web-based solutions for Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Navy, major universities, and high profile non-profits. His analyses have been quoted on high profile websites like c|net and the Winsupersite.

Jake started working with WordPress in 2006 while managing the interactive division of a 100-man contractor. In 2009, while employed as Technology Director at a Providence-based agency, he refocused his professional attention on the platform, releasing free plug-ins, diverting new projects to the platform, and engaging the community. Jake’s leadership helped transform that agency from a 3-man team serving a niche CMS to an open source software agency with 10 employees.

In February 2011, Jake founded 10up with a vision of a distributed, elite team that could build beautiful, easy to manage websites on the web’s best platform – WordPress.

Between leading the charge at 10up, Jake is a writer and expert reviewer for Smashing Magazine (the web’s top new media publication) and teaches WordPress development at Boston University. Jake has spoken at WordCamps around the country, including Chicago, New York, Orlando, Phoenix, Philadelphia, and Miami. He helped organize the first WordCamp Boston in 2010 and founded the WordPress Providence Meetup.

Jake is a core contributor to WordPress and maintains some of the highest rated plug-ins on the official repository. Cumulatively, they have been downloaded over 250,000 times.
