I’m pretty excited right now, as I will be attending WordCamp Mumbai 2017 with eight of my friends on March 25th and 26th at Bandra. Though we guys are basically from Chennai, our mother tongues and natives vary. Only one guy in our group knows how to properly converse in Hindi. I know a little bit too…”mujhe Hindi acha nahi malum”. 😉
What is a WordCamp?
WordCamp is basically a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you and me. Everyone, from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.
Who is it for?
To be honest, it is for anyone who uses WordPress – it doesn’t matter whether you are a blogger, designer, developer, marketer, businesses, non-profits, photographers, consultants or entrepreneurs.
What are the benefits of attending a WordCamp?
By attending a WordCamp, you can get to learn more about WordPress directly from core developers. Moreover, you will be getting a lot of networking opportunities at WordCamps. Also, if you are lucky, you can seal a deal from the powerful sponsors at WordCamps for your next project or venture.
If you are actively involved with WordPress and would like to get a related job, it would be a piece of cake for you to do so at WordCamps, as people are always looking for potential candidates to hire for various WP related positions.
And the best part I would say is, you will get to learn more about the whole of WordPress community, users and developers, co bloggers, potential sponsors, etc.
Now, coming back to the topic.
Journey from Chennai to Mumbai
We have already booked the train tickets to travel from Chennai to Mumbai. We will be departing from Chennai on March 23rd 6:55am and reach Mumbai on 24th 7:00am hopefully.
It cost us ₹10000 to book our tickets just for travelling to Mumbai and to come back home. Anyways, I hope it will be worth the money.
We have already booked our rooms near Bandra and we will be staying over there for six days though the event lasts for two days only. We extended our stay mainly because we wanted to enjoy our stay over there and make it a memorable one.
If you are a regular follower of my posts, you would have already noted that I’m very much interested in everything WordPress. This is the first time I’m going to attend a WordCamp and I am already excited. Hope me and friends have a very good time and experience over there.
