We asked some of our speakers and attendees what invaluable things they’ve learned and experienced at past WordCamps – why it is that they keep coming back year after year for more WordCamp goodness. Here are some of their responses:
Almost everyone attending WordCamps is there for many of the same reasons I am.
Most everyone is open to meeting new people in the community. All it takes is 20 seconds of courage.
I learned that hosting is just as important as your code.
The people I meet at WordCamps are some of my best friends in the world.
At WordCamp I learned that others have already solved problems I am struggling to figure out on my own.
I’ve learned incredible things about how to run a successful web development business. Being able to connect to people further along in their careers has been invaluable, and the business talks have provided me with actionable advice and new tools to improve my process and grow my business.
WordCamps have shown me that the community is infinitely supportive. So if you have a question or need help, just ask.
WordCamp speakers, volunteers, and attendees are invested in supporting others and helping them to grow.
No matter how much you *think* you know about WordPress there is always someone who knows something that you don’t.
Attending a WordCamp gave me a better grasp on website security – it’s more than just having a strong password, and I’m not sure I would have gotten that as quickly without the great talk I attended.
None of us has everything figured out and there’s always something new to learn.
You don’t have to be an expert to have something to contribute.
I learned that I wasn’t the most inexperienced person working with WordPress.
Not everybody is an expert, yet we all have something to contribute. What you learned today someone else still doesn’t know.
At WordCamp I learned that the future of web design is about more than just building a mobile responsive website.
WordPress meetups and WordCamp talks have made me a better developer – being self-taught is great, but can only take you so far. At WordPress events, I’ve learned big things like how to develop locally and use Git to version control my development, to small code tricks and refinements that speed up my process and have made my final product better.
