At the start of October I had the great privilege of attending and speaking at WordCamp Belfast
WordCamp Belfast was the first WordCamp ever organised in Northern Ireland and it was a sheer delight. It was great spending time in the fine city of Belfast with the rest of Ireland’s WordPress community for a weekend of talks, workshops, laughs and a party. Thanks to the organisers for putting together a great event, particularly as it was Belfast’s first.
Aside from attending I was also an event speaker. I’ve spoken at WooCommerce events and non-web events but this was my first WordCamp. I’m glad that I had the chance to give my first WordCamp talk at the first WordCamp in Ireland.
I spoke on WordPress Developer Operations for Beginners, a talk I had premiered at WP LDN [http://wpldn.uk] a few nights before. Thanks to every one who gave comments at both events especially to those at WP LDN with their feedback and improvements I could then use at the second delivery.
My Slides are available here and the video will be on WordPress TV soon.
No WordCamp would be complete without a great after party and Belfast WordCamp really delivered.
Our host’s Brewbot on the Ormeau Road had concocted a brew exclusively for the evening and it went down well with all attendees. I’ve wanted to go to Brewbot for a long time so this was a real treat for me.
All in all, a great WordCamp. I look forward to the next one and a big final thank you to all the organisers.
