WordCamp Nepal 2015 is going to be held in Nepal Administrative Staff College, located in Jawalakhel, Lalitpur on November 21, 2015. So, fellow WordPress lovers or anybody who is interested or has experience in handling WordPress are invited to join us.
For anyone who is new to WordPress and WordCamp, here’s a little background:
WordPress is a Content Management System, so resourceful it powers websites, blogs, e-commerce, forums and more. It first started as a blogging tool but due to the numerous plugins to extend its functions, the great support network WordPress has and being so user friendly, it has become the choice of many web developers.
And as the name suggests, WordCamp is a unique event on WordPress conducted globally. It is organized, paid for, and attended by the local WordPress communities in compliance to the guidelines published at WordCamp Central and the principles of the WordPress Foundation. You get to learn and make connections.All in all, it’s about bringing people together, showcasing local talent, sharing knowledge and experiences.
I have been organizing WordCamp Nepal from its very first installment but this year, I am the lead organizer of the event with the help of our generous sponsors and hard-working volunteers. Without their support, WordCamp Nepal would not be possible.
What DO we have?
We are doing things a little differently this year. We have added great workshops like:
- Contributing to WordPress Theme Review
- WordPress Theme Development
- WordPress Plugin Ideas and Contribution
- WordPress Plugin Development
In Nepal, the plugin market is not as established as the theme market. So, to explore opportunities and to provide insights, we have Bryce Adams. He is a professional coder who works for Automattic on the biggest WooCommerce plugin in the world. He has spoken at many events, sharing his insights and love for WordPress and the many opportunities it provides. In the event, he will be talking about freemium plugins and how to become a plugin developer. Also, we have a panel discussion on “WordPress for Career“. This is mainly targeted towards young and aspiring developers, bloggers or anyone interested in learning about WordPress in general.
I hope this edition of WordCamp will motivate more young, brilliant minds to become a part of our community. WordPress is an open source community. It doesn’t just happen. It happens when people make a decision to get involved and those who are just getting a taste of the community keep coming back to get involved. A community is only as good as what we, within the community, put back into it. It is what we make it and that’s something that we have the power to influence positively. That only happens when we’re present and we participate.
