Powered By Coffee had the great privilege of attending WordCamp London this weekend. This was our first WordPress focused event and what a way to kick off.
Firstly we’d like to congratulate and thank the organisers for a well thought out, inclusive and well-planned event. Everything ran smoothly even when it looked like things might fall apart with speakers falling ill and talks having to be replaced at the last moment.
We’d also like to thank the WordPress Foundation for sponsoring the event and making it so affordable.
The speakers were all excellent, with talks well thought out and focused on their topics, every speaker brought value. An incredibly difficult feat when speaking to an audience that is mixed bloggers, designers and developers – groups that share few interests at any time. Highlights for me personally include the WP-API talks, the UK Agency Panel, Learning how News UK have scaled their new WordPress operations and Mark Jaquith breaking down the best practises in Caching
As always the talks and presentations are only part of what makes any conference experience great. The people you meet are the real drivers behind any experience, and WordCamp really excelled here. I got the chance to meet and greet a few companies I’ve admired from afar for a while now, a chance I wouldn’t have had at any other conference series.
Again, thanks to the organisers of WordCamp and here’s to next year.
