This year we were overwhelmed by the support received from the sponsors. We can’t stress enough that WordCamp cannot happen without their involvement. Here’s to the companies that helped us this year: WooCommerce, JetPack, CaptainForm, WPZoom, SiteGround. TranslatePress (our Gold Sponsors), to GoDaddy, Bluehost, Crowd Favorite, (our Silver Sponsors), and to WPML, WPRiders, Yoast and ThemeIsle (our Bronze Sponsors).

We’ve had an extensive line-up this year with topics covering theme development, automation tools, security, online marketing, business strategies and many more. All wrapped up in one conference day with a single track and 14 presentations.

Some of the presentation slides can be found online:

Volunteers and organizers

Finally, a big round of applause to the organizing team that has been preparing this event since early May. Everything from venue to catering, website, communications, to speakers sessions must be thought through and prepared in advance. Big up to the volunteers team who was spot on in handling registration, taking care of the speakers and making sure things are in place during the event.
