WordCamp Sydney 2014

I was pleased to have the opportunity to attend WordCamp Sydney in late September which – as usual – offered a couple of different streams: one for developers and one for users (or beginners).

WordCamps are locally organised events for WordPress developers and users. They take place all around the world and offer useful tips and tricks about the platform, the community, the technology and future directions. It’s also an excellent networking opportunity and – like all workshops or conferences – provides participants with the chance to meet likeminded people who speak the same language.

WordCamp Sydney sessions included everything from WooCommerce to WordPress search engine optimisation to coding practices and naming conventions and project management.

A lot was on offer over the two days but I found the session on WordPress coding standards and best practice particularly interesting, along with a discussion about optimising WordPress for speed and performance.

I also really enjoyed a Lightning (ad hoc) presentation on project management challenges and lessons which is something we often discuss here at The Code Company.

Check out the WordCamp Sydney 2014 website for more information about the event and links to speakers’ slides and presentations.
