WordCamp Sydney is a 2-day community-organised event focused on bringing together all things WordPress. Speakers share the latest happenings in WordPress, and the event is filled with discussion, innovation, and collaboration. WordCamps cater to individuals from different groups and skill levels, including bloggers, marketers, and developers.
A few of us from The Code Company had the privilege of attending WordCamp Sydney in July. We were able to learn about what’s been happening with the WordPress community and web development space in general, ensuring our skills and knowledge is up-to-date.
There were several topics that that piqued my interest. Below are just a few highlights of the many important takeaways from WordCamp Sydney.
There were so many great speakers at WordCamp Sydney, one of whom was our own Scott Commins, who spoke about his journey with WordPress app development over the past five years.
Scott shared both the good and bad experiences we’ve all encountered using WordPress as an application development framework. It was great for us to have the opportunity to share some of our knowledge and give something back to the community.
Another great benefit of WordCamp is the opportunity to network with others in the industry, and see what new products and services the event sponsors had on display.
This was a great way to discover new services, tools, and everything else related to WordPress that could help our clients operate better.
Finally, attending WordCamp Sydney together helped our team strengthen our working relationships outside of the work environment. It was a great chance to experience some of the sights, sounds and flavours of the city of Sydney.
We all returned to our roles ready to collaborate more efficiently, and serve our clients even better.
