(Gawkwire) – Nexcess, the exclusive, official Enterprise Hosting Partner of EllisLab’s ExpressionEngine, have announced that they will be the main sponsor for this year’s ExpressionEngine Conference in Portland, Oregon.
ExpressionEngine is an advanced PHP-based content management system from EllisLab that provides extraordinary levels of flexibility for online publishers. ExpressionEngine is a modern CMS designed to be easy-to-use while maintaining the levels of performance and power required by developers and designers. Its powerful template engine and wide variety of add-on modules and plugins provide endless customizability without the excessive complexity of less modern content management systems.
This year’s ExpressionEngine Conference will be the most exciting yet, with over 30 speakers and nearly 50 presentations from ExpressionEngine professionals and enthusiasts. Among the highlights will be a 50-minute presentation on the 15th from Nexcess CEO Chris Wells, titled "ExpressionEngine Performance & Optimization – Laying a Solid Foundation". Other highlights from the conference include opening remarks from EllisLab’s Derek Jones, a talk on ExpressionEngine design patterns by Moresoda’s Christopher Imrie, and an in-depth look at ExpressionEngine and security from Eric Lamb of Mithra62.
“We’re always proud to take a leading role in the ExpressionEngine community,” commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, “The ExpressionEngine Conference is the world’s premiere ExpressionEngine event, and we’ll be there with our team to meet the leading lights of ExpressionEngine development, design, and deployment. We look forward to EECI every year; it’s a great opportunity for us to contribute to and learn from the ExpressionEngine community.”
EECI takes place between October 14–15 at The Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon, which was recently voted the best hotel in Portland, and is in easy walking distance of Portland’s highlights.
