WordCamp Asia Road Trip

What is your wish for WordPress in 2017?

That was one of the questions the VINUBIS crew and I asked to our interviewees at WordCamp US.

From “more REST API” and “better user experience”, to “improved theme or plugin repositories,” we got a little bit of all! Just watch all our WCUS interviews on the VINUBIS Video Editor Youtube channel.

A few interesting conversations arose around the growth of the Asian WordPress community. Some of the main representatives of this community were present at WCUS and they shared with us their hopes for a “WordCamp Asia.” Probably not in 2017, but hopefully in 2018, as they all explain in this video:

I was so impressed by such vivacity and freshness that I started dreaming of an “WordCamp Asia Road Trip” in 2017. Back from WCUS, I checked the WordCamps schedule and applied as speaker for WordCamp Pune, Udaipur, Bangkok and Mumbai. When I got these two emails from the organizers of WC Pune, Saurabh Shukla, and WC Udaipur, Puneet Sahalot, I knew my dream was becoming reality.

Puneet’s email

My plan is to carry on these “video conversations” about WCAsia during my visits to the WordPress Community of India. Actually, my talk at WordCamp Pune, will consist of a 2-session debate and workshop where I will ask my audience to share their thoughts on the growth of WordPress in Asia. I will record them during the debate and edit the footage, with them, during the workshop.

As for WordCamp Udaipur, I will just let you watch this video invitation!
