    WordCamp Phoenix 2018Speaker: Shayda Torabi

    February 27, 2018 — Two years ago I made a fundamental shift in my life. I decided to stop waiting for things to happen to me and decided to start doing them.

    Shayda Torabi: You Have Two Hands

    WordCamp Las Vegas 2015Speaker: Shayda Torabi

    February 20, 2016 — Community – WordPress doesn’t just happen overnight. For them to be successful, they take people to show up, contribute back, grow with it and most importantly to incorporate new people into the fold. It is ongoing, it requires attention and it needs people like you and me to speak up. A small fraction of people carry the weight of helping it thrive, but the great thing is that despite all that, we all benefit from the community no matter who contributes. In this talk I will cover some known, and unknown tips and tools for making the community work for you and your business, and also help to put back more into the community than what you take from it.
