Monthly Roundup – March 2024



Last month, rtCamp reached a momentous milestone – our 15th anniversary. We’re grateful to the WordPress community, our valued clients, and our amazing team who made this journey possible.

To effectively convey the suitability and power of WordPress to enterprise buyers, we launched the Scale Consortium website along with other leading agencies. The Scale Consortium aims to offer a more unified view of WordPress at scale, simplifying decision-making for enterprise buyers.

Our HR team received recognition at the National HR Excellence Award Summit 2024 for career initiatives geared towards early professionals. Our Campus Hiring Program has allowed us to grow at a rate we previously couldn’t and helped us bring smart young minds into the world of open source and WordPress.

WordPress 6.5 is out. This is the 30th consecutive release with contributions from rtCampers. Some interesting updates include a new Fonts Library, synchronized site editor and post editor UIs and a new standard for advanced block interactivity.

Ever wondered why rtCampers always look so well-rested? On our blog, we reveal the secret behind why none of us have dark circles. You can be part of the #NoDarkCircles gang too by joining our team!
