Endurance Brands HostGator and Bluehost to Sponsor Yet Another Perl Conference

Endurance Increases Support for the Perl Community.

Burlington, Mass(BUSINESS WIRE) June 19, 2014 -- Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), a leading provider of cloud-based platform solutions to help small and medium-sized businesses succeed online, today announced that two of its major brands, Bluehost and HostGator, are each Silver Sponsors at the 2014 Perl Conference in Orlando, Florida from June 23-25. 'YAPC' — Yet Another Perl Conference — is considered the top Perl conference in the world, where advanced developers go for training and networking.

Endurance will have a recruitment consultant at the conference to meet with developers interested in hearing about a potential career with either Bluehost or HostGator. Plus, parent company Endurance will also be sending 17 developers to the conference to learn, write code, and share insights with the community.

Matt Calkins, VP Product Development at Bluehost, commented, "We look forward to this conference every year because Perl is our primary backend language at Bluehost and many other parts of Endurance. It is very popular in the shared hosting world and our ongoing strategy includes growing our Perl expertise."

Xaviar Steavenson, Director of Software at HostGator, commented, "HostGator has its foundations deep in the roots of the Perl world. Perl and *nix based operating systems have always gone hand in hand, so it was really a natural progression that we built tools that utilized the power and flexibility that Perl offers. One of the things we love about Perl is the strong sense of community, so we are happy to give back and increase our sponsorship this year."
