I may have developing on the WordPress platform for 11 years but, as yet, I haven’t been a speaker at a WordCamp. In fact, other than at work, internally, I’ve never given a talk on WordPress at all. So, it’s with some relief that I can announce that I will “pop my cherry” next month, […]
It’s been a year since I went to my first ever WordCamp – WordCamp London. And now I’m back for a second attempt.
Thursday 15th June kicks off 2017’s WordCamp Europe, this year in Paris. And I’ll be there! As with WC London, I’ll be volunteering during the main event and contributing on Thursday itself.
During the event I’ll be updating this post with a diary of how it goes – after WCUS, WCEU is the biggest of the WordCamp and, I’ll admit, a little daunting.
I fly to Paris very early on Wednesday 14th, where I’m staying at a hotel arranged by Automattic for its employees attending the camp. I’m both excited but nervous (similar to how I was for London).
For my first ever WordCamp, I thought I’d go ‘all out’ – the full 3 days and volunteering as well. Oh, and it’s the London WordCamp too, the largest in the UK.
So, I thought I’d write about my experience – the highs and the inevitable, exhausted lows.
