Whilst working alongside developers it is useful that I stay informed about WordPress.
To remain informed about WordPress (a CMS platform the developers I work alongside use to build websites or components I have designed) I decided to attend WordCamp – London 2018. Over the two days, the talks were related to Hot Topic’s such as GDPR or Gutenberg a new WordPress editor currently in Beta testing, be development based, so looking at more technical aspects of WordPress, focus on business development or designing for WordPress.
From the talks that I attended I noticed that the presenters kept coming back to these points:
At the end of each talk, there was the chance of a quick Q&A with the presenters, there were also opportunities to network with others in workshops running alongside the talks or go to the ’Happiness Bar’ which was more like a 1-to-1 help desk to troubleshoot any current WordPress issues you may be experiencing. There were companies advertising jobs positions, and a place you could post your details, and the type of position you were looking for. Lots of freebies were on offer too, available from sponsor stands promoting their products which worked alongside WordPress.
So depending on what you were looking for, you could take away a lot of advice, and learn new things from a conference like this.
