WordCamp Pune and my first International WordCamp

First things first, I have blogged a lot here and lost it almost everytime, may be I wasn’t much keen on keeping it going. But now I have decided to start writing again and it won’t be all tutorials or just geeky stuffs. This time the blog will have more of my views and experience and obviously a lot of that would revolve around WordPress.

Having been a WordPress enthusiast for years, WordCamps have always been a special event for me. As a matter of fact I have been part of all the 5 WordCamps here in Nepal, the first 4 of which were WordCamp Nepal while the last one was organized as WordCamp Kathmandu, making way for more city based events in the future, which I think is awesome as travelling to those cities would be something I would love to do and to have a motive would make the trip happen sooner. Yay! So of the five WordCamps that happened in Nepal in the last five years I have been a speaker at four of them and the one that I didn’t speak on, I was part of the organizing committee. All because of the love for the community, which I think is the main reason why WordPress has been the best loved CMS for years now.

This double shot Americano should keep me going.

Getting back to the topic, I always wanted to attend more WordCamps and meet new people. So I had to plan for one that would happen outside Nepal. That is when I met Amit Singh when he can as a speaker at WordCamp Kathmandu and that is when I got to know about WordCamp Pune, a place near yet one I hadn’t been to before. Having studied for 2 years in Bangalore around 2002-2004 I have always had a special feeling for India. So I geared myself up and filled in the speaker form for WordCamp Pune. Few days later I received confirmation from Saurabh Shuklawho I know from the first ever WordCamp Nepal. I decided on a topic that I did this year in Kathmandu, making the most out of WordCamps and I think attendees in Pune will live this as well. all set and confirmed to speak and here I am writing this from the lounge at Tribhuwan International Airport, Kathmandu all set and ready and excited to be a part of my first ever International WordCamp and that too as a speaker. I hope I can do justice to this. And as I get my final words here, I get my boarding call. More on my trip to Pune soon. Also if you are at Pune and a fellow WordPress Enthusiast, I would live to meet and talk to you on the 15th of January 2017.
