WordCamp Montréal 2020 is at risk

I participated to my first WordCamp Montreal in 2011. That first time was remarkable for a number of reasons. In addition to learning a ton of things on the WordPress ecosystem and discovering a generous community, it was that year that I met Jean-François Arseneault, also Co-Founder of SatelliteWP. Over the years, my role in…

A new astronaut with SatelliteWP!

Since communication is one of my specialties, I couldn’t let one of my new colleagues write up the announcement of my arrival to SatelliteWP! I will not be discussing programming or plugins since I come from a somewhat different planet, which allows me to perfectly complement the team in place. My conversations will preferably be…

SatelliteWP Rewards Marie-Philippe Gill for her Involvement

My name is Maxime and I’m the Co-Founder of SatelliteWP. I was a full-time student for more than 5 years in Computer Science. In a group of about 70 students, we’d be lucky if there were 5 women in the room, for a male / female ratio below 10%. Ouch! I remember at the time wanting…

If you follow the WordPress news, you know that the launch of version 5.0 is coming. This could happen in November (we doubt it) or at the beginning of 2019.

We are days away from 4.9.6. This is no minor release. If releasing Gutenberg, the new website editor, is a statement for WordPress version 5.0, this next update is for GDPR and really should be using a different version number such as 4.10… even if WordPress never went past “.9” in previous versions.   Why does this…

Our involvement in The WP Crowd

One of the thing we believe in at SatelliteWP is sharing our knowledge and giving back to the community. Because we’ve all been helped by other more knowledgeable people when we started, and because karma is a good thing.
