Thank you so much to all WordCamp Vancouver sponsors. Without their generous help, WordCamp wouldn’t be the same or wouldn’t be at all!

Modern Tribe

Modern Tribe has been making lean, expertly-built WordPress plugins and websites since 2001. With a 100% remotes team works across timezones to build one of the most popular calendar plugins in the world: The Events Calendar.

While not catering to their hundreds of thousands of awesome Events Calendar users, you’ll find them building more customized solutions for the likes of Harvard Law School, eBay, and Microsoft.

More important than these facts and figures is the happiness of their team. The lifestyle we advocate and live gives us the flexibility to achieve that ever-elusive “work-life balance”, and the ability to stay active in – and give back to – the WordPress community. What matters more than the people in your life and the communities you belong to?

Modern Tribe is proud to have spoken at more than 23 WordCamps over the years, and attended even more than that. They’re always a blast – this year at WordCamp Vancouver is sure to be no exception!
