We have the pleasure of having FS Data being a Gold sponsor to WordCamp Norrköping. We’ve talked with Jonathan Sulo at FS Data a bit about their participation and their love for WordPress.
– Hey Jonathan, Could you introduce yourself in a few words?
My name is Jonathan Sulo and I’m the Marketing Manager at FS Data. I’ve been in the webhosting business since -99 and I’ve been using WordPress since -05. I both write and speak a lot about WordPress, with main focus on administration, security, integrity, performance and such.
I also volunteer work as webmaster of the largest Saab car club in the world, Svenska Saabklubben, with a large WordPress Multisite network running BuddyPress, bbPress, WooCommerce etc.
– Could you tell us more what FS Data does?
FS Data was one of the first web hosting companies in Sweden, back in -97. We offer a wide range of services, from domain names and email to webhosting, advanced servers and more. And we love WordPress.
We use WordPress ourselves and we promote it actively to our customers by providing an easy installer of WordPress (and WooCommerce), with automated updates and an optimized server environment. FS Data is a frequent supporter of different WordPress meetups and WordCamps.
– How does WordPress contribute to what you do?
WordPress enables our customers to easily set up and maintain their own websites, blogs and e-commerce sites. We support a lot of different content management systems, but WordPress is clearly the main choice with our customers.
– How will WordPress fit in your future business?
We intend to keep supporting WordPress for the foreseeable future. We’ve been translating WooCommerce to Swedish for two years and we’re actively looking for new and interesting WordPress projects to support in similar ways.
– What are your hopes for the WordPress community?
We hope to be able to continue supporting the Swedish WordPress community. The official Swedish WordPress community site, WordPress Sverige, are already hosted with us. We’re looking forward to supporting both them and other WordPress initiatives in Sweden.
– What opportunities are you hoping for at this WordCamp?
We mainly intend to listen to our customers and other participants at this WordCamp. We wan’t to hear what their needs and wishes are, to further improve our services. And we hope to have a great time with all awesome people at WordCamp Norrköping.
