My First WordCamp Experience

I’d like to share my experience of WordCamp Udaipur which took placed on 28th Jan 2017. First of all, I would like to thank @Vajrasar to inform me about the WordCamp in first place. I have been a WordPress developer but never had the opportunity to attend a WordCamp. It was educational, inspiring, and I enjoyed the overall experience.

The venue was very good. Special thanks to  @Puneet and  #WCUdaipur organizers for awesome setup and management.

Following are some sessions which I liked the most.

  • Why we Indian Developers Fail… – Nirav Mehta
  • Hiring WP Devs – Rahul Bansal
  • Exploring the REST API V2 – Ayushdeep Singh
  • Templating with Underscore.js in WordPress – Achal Jain

Also Panel Discussion – Building a Successful WordPress Business was very helpful.

In #WCudaipur food was very delicious and also my thanks to sponsors for lots of #swag from WordCamp team and @resellerclub @buddyboss @ideabox @kitsune

My overall experience was very good. I’m glad that this WordCamp turned out to be a good experience, can’t wait for next WordCamp.

From this WordCamp, I learned that we need to step out from our comfort zone. When we come out of our comfort zone there are too many challenges in front of us, and we should face them, we may fail sometimes but if we don’t take those risks, you will never know the opportunities that you could be missing.

!!! IF YOU DON’T TAKE RISKS, YOU WILL ALWAYS WORK FOR SOMEONE WHO DOES !!!
