Why did you decide to get involved and sponsor WordCamp Cape Town 2012?

Given our history and passion for hosting WordPress websites, everything from small personal blogs to media companies publishing content on a large scale, it’s something close to our heart and our business, plus it’s part of a Global WordPress community…why would we NOT want to be involved? 🙂

What are your thoughts on the WordPress community as a whole? And the South African WP community?

We’ve got some great, innovative guys down here, doing everything from creating amazing themes (Woothemes and Obox) to building functionality rich sites within WordPress. Even a WordPress plugin for MXit has recently been launched.

What are you most looking forward to at WordCamp Cape Town?

I’m looking forward to the diversity in the speakers and meeting new interesting people within the community!

Please share one WP tip

Ensure you cache and use a host that has a good understanding of WordPress.

Do you make money from wordpress?

Yes, through hosting wordpress sites for customers and delivering by using RSAWEB’s AfriCDN.

Is WordPress an effective platform for getting your message across?

Yes, absolutely, it’s all about utilising WordPress fully (and not running too many questionable WordPress plugins.)

Where do you feel you can make a difference at WordCamp and why?

Given our history of using, and hosting WordPress sites, we feel that we’ve got a lot of information to share…

Are you going to be giving any Swag away at the event, what sort of goodies can the attendees expect?

We’ll be giving away water, notepads, pens and chocolate (who doesn’t love choccy?) We might even give out a bit of free CDN if we’re asked nicely.

Last year your team provided an excellent internet service to the event, this year RSAWEB will again be providing WordCamp with Internet. Please could you describe what internet connection will be and how the setup will work?

We’ll be setting up a conference rig, but to be entirely honest the location is really challenging.
