Have you ever wondered what goes on at a data centre, perhaps one that hosts your website or blog?
If that’s a question you’ve asked before, then here’s your chance to get the answer.
A tour of a state-of-the-art UK data centre in Newark is a central part of an event taking place on August 21 that will focus on the underlying technology that powers many WordPress blogs.
I’ve joined Matt Russell, CEO of WebHostingBuzz (the hosting service that sponsors and hosts my blogs) and Trefor Davies, co-founder and CTO of Timico (the owner of the data centre) to put together Bloggade 2013:
The focus of this first Bloggade is on the underlying technology that powers many WordPress blogs. You’ll experience a tour of Timico’s £5m Midlands datacentre that opened in 2012, and see at first hand the technology that powers the web including many WordPress blogs hosted with WebHostingBuzz at the datacentre.
We have round table discussions planned on WordPress hosting, hardware, search engine optimization and more, all addressing the topics from a non-technical perspective, but in the true round table spirit – anything and everything to do with WordPress is up for discussion.
Bring your questions, comments and experiences!
You’ll also get ideas and insights from experiences and blogging best practices in a panel discussion with Andrew Grill and I – Andrew’s blog is also hosted by WebHostingBuzz – as well as from others there, all designed to help you get the most from the WordPress content management system, especially the new version 3.6.
Thanks to Timico, the half-day event is free to attend: the only condition is that you must have your own blog, whether it runs on WordPress or any other platform.
Sign up for your free ticket and join us for an afternoon in Newark – an historic town within easy reach of major towns and cities in the Midlands, East Anglia and the Northeast (and less than 90 minutes by fast train from London).
It’s a great opportunity to talk about the nuts and bolts of blogging and WordPress, see inside a modern data centre, and conclude things in a local pub.
What a pleasant way to spend a Wednesday afternoon! Hope to see you there on August 21.
