Digital agencies' best practices about modern web development, digital and inbound marketing.
1ST & 2nd December, Team Monks attended the WordCamp Ahmedabad 2018. Monks are glad to be a part of world’s largest open source community meetup- WordCamp.
This year’s WordCamp Ahmedabad was full of great speakers, interesting sessions, and lots of enthusiastic attendees. The WC Ahmedabad saw 1000+ attendees, 30 speakers, 40 sponsors, and 150 contributors.
WordCamps are always special and we take our pride in being a silver sponsor at WordCamp Ahmedabad 2018. The Monks were hanging at our sponsor booth spreading the words about our contests: ‘WordPress Quiz’ and ‘Selfie with Monk’.
Prizes for the WordPress Quiz Contest
Many of our team members were volunteers at the event and helped conduct WordCamp event. One of our team members, Mithun Raval, delivered an informative session on WordPress with IoT- how smart devices like mobile, TV, watch can be connected to the Internet by developing WordPress applications.

At the end, it was time to give back to the WordPress by contributing to the WordPress core, which opens opportunities for both agencies and developers.
The venue was spacious and the food at the event was decent and had so much variety. We were delighted at how well this event was prepared for and how smoothly it was carried out.
Kudos to the WordCamp organisers.
