October 30, 2017 — Ana and Marko Segota are a theme design team located in Germany. This is the first husband and wife team I have had the pleasure to interview at the same time.
You can see their website at https://www.anarieldesign.com
They had attended WordCamp Zagrb in Croatia in early September. They also attended WordCamp Europe. We discuss the pros and cons of attending large and small WordCamps, friends you make in the community and the welcoming, open atmosphere.
Ana and Marko also design times for charity or non profits organizations needing to establish a presence on the web. You can see some of these themes in the WordPress repository here: https://wordpress.org/themes/author/anariel-design/
October 16, 2017 — Sandro Gilando attended his WordCamp this past June at WordCamp Kent. Although well versed in SEO practices, Sandro was new to WordPress.He attended the 2 day WordCamp and sat through the WP 101 sessions which were presented by Melinda Helt of the Training Team.
Although I did not meet Sandro at the WordCamp, I happened to see a mention of a podcast talking about WordCamp Kent and that is how I contacted Sandro. You can listen to his podcast here: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/60-second-marketing/e/50612855.
October 5, 2017 — With WordCamp US rapidly approaching, I wanted to chat with someone who was involved in the planning. Michele Butcher-Jones is a member of the Speaker Selection Team and has some interesting facts about speaker submissions and WCUS in general.
