WordCamp Nepal 2014: A recap

On November 22, 2014, the third edition of WordCamp Nepal was successfully conducted in the historic city of Patan (Lalitpur). I looked at the attendees list and said, “This year’s going to top last year”.

WordCamp Nepal 2014’s sessions were focused on web design, blogging, theme review, on SEO, GitHub, security, panel discussions on the various aspects of WordPress and more. As a speaker, and co-organizer, I was glad to see such a great turnout. Pratik and I spoke on WordPress.org Theme Review as a part of the Contribution Hour Workshop.  All of the other speakers did a great job, and everybody walked away from the conference learning something new. If you missed a talk or want to have another look at it, videos will be published on WordPress.tv.

For those of you who may not know, a WordCamp is a local conference or event that is centered on WordPress. The events are completely run by the volunteers – even the organizers are all volunteers. There are WordCamps happening all around the word each year, providing great content, training, workshops, motivations, business advice and help to designers, developers, bloggers, business owners and WordPress users at every level.

I want to give a huge round of applause for all the WordCamp Nepal organizers and volunteers. This non-profit, completely volunteer-run event of over 100 people was incredibly well conducted; smooth and organized. The people involved were fully engaged and did a great job sharing the responsibilities. Also, a big thank you to our WordCamp Nepal 2014 sponsors, including Yala Maya Kendra, Patan for being a wonderful venue yet again.

Hope the next WordCamp Nepal will be even bigger and better.
