Following his inquisitive nature as well as the strategic thinking honed during his 11 years in the US Air Force, Kiko founded InGroup Consulting. Over the 4 years in business, Kiko and IGC have found WordPress to be the best platform to showcase their capabilities.

Interview with Joe Dolson
We want to express our gratitude to WPML for coming on board as a WordCamp Accomplice sponsor and supporting WordCamp Chicago 2013. With their help, we are able to do so many things with our event that otherwise may not be possible.
The WordPress Multilingual Plugin (WPML) is a product of OnTheGoSystems. Although they list Las Vegas as their home, OnTheGoSystems is truly a global company with staff from six continents. They all work from their homes, connect via the Internet, and have been working that way since 2007.
These folks are busy! In April they announced the release of WPML 2.8 and just recently posted on their blog that they are ready with a first beta for WPML 2.9. They were also doing minor version releases during that time. Product development isn’t the only thing they are working on. Theme and plugin compatibility testing with WPML is an on-going process. You can review the entire Multilingual ready list of themes here and plugins here.
