A Glimpse of WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017 with WebbyMonks
WordPress is awesome, so are Monks. Here we’re showcasing some highlights of the recent WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017, where we had a good time in exploring experiences with global WordPress community.
6th, 7th, and 8th October 2017, Ahmedabad WordPress community hosted a WordCamp meetup to represent the passion, talent, and diversity of WordPressers. WebbyMonks joined the community event as a Silver Sponsor.
The first WordCamp was organized in 2006 in San Francisco, USA. Since then it has become a huge event for WordPress lovers all and help in every big city across the globe.
Yes, it was about everything WordPress. WordCamp Ahmedabad has drawn some of the most talented speakers, generous and innovative sponsors (companies and individuals), and diverse group of WordPress enthusiasts and attendees.
The 3-day event had different sessions on WordPress development related to themes, installation, plugin development, security, networking and the new WordPress visual editor called Project Gutenberg, which makes it easier to edit content visually.
WordPress started as a simple blogging tool has now grown to a complete CMS. Today WordPress is powering more than 28% of the web, isn’t it amazing? Ahmedabad has a vibrant WordPress community who made it into a successful WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017.
WordPress 4.9 Beta 1 was released a day before the WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017. There was a warm discussion about the upcoming version of WordPress 4.9 and Gutenberg, which is built by many contributors and volunteers. We’ve observed that many people are curious and anxious about Gutenberg editor. You can participate on Github and discuss it on WordPress Slack group.

Our Learnings from the #WCAhmedabad 2017
Keep focusing on the fundamentals if you want to create awesome WordPress applications with the fast-changing WordPress environment.
Gutenberg will make the content editing easy by providing more flexibility and more control on content layouts within a post with a simple and flexible user interface. But, we need to wait for it until the Gutenberg team will rewrite Gutenberg using a different library to avoid any patent issue in the future.
Accessibility, simplicity, and ease will always remain at the core of the WordPress. Stay focused on the fundamentals to achieve perfection in the fast-evolving WordPress ecosystem.
Monks are happy for being a part of this outstanding WordCamp event. We’ll continue helping our partners in their challenges with our focused WordPress development service. Subscribe our newsletter and stay in touch for more WordPress updates.
