Sanskari Nagari Vadodara held the WordCamp function on 12 October 2019 at Lakshmi Vilas Palace. The venue for the event, Lakshmi Vilas Palace, was a grand royal monument. It was built by the Gaekwad family, a famous Maratha family, who ruled the state of Baroda in 1890.
I am passionate about open source and sharing knowledge and code with the WordPress community. As well as, I am generally speaking at various city meetups like Ahmedabad, Surat, etc. In this blog, I am writing about my first International speaker experience at WordCamp Vadodara.
I have got a warm welcome from the volunteers and the organizing team. The crowd was energetic and interactive. It has been a great experience to meet new people.
It was my first-time International speaking experience at WordCamp. I probably speak around the forty-minute or longer, and as well as I went through a full range of ways to contribute. I gave a speech about seven lessons learned while creating WP plugins with such an enthusiastic crowd.
I enjoyed sharing my knowledge and working experience with WordPress. If you’re thinking to start your own product store as a part-time earner or business then this will be a good session to note down points before making that decision. Here are my slides, if you’d like to go through for your reference.
There was an after-event party as well, which was refreshing. It was a memorable WordCamp Vadodara experience.
I’ve written this post to share my experience as a WordCamp Speaker. I met many amazing people, I improved my technical and social skills and got the chance to learn a lot of new things. Finally, I want to thank all the people that I met during these WordCamp. You have been very important to me for my personal and professional growth, thank you!
Hoping to be a part of WordCamp in the coming years too.
