  • Joe A Simpson Jr. :90 Days: Finding Your Place in the WordPress Community

    Joe A Simpson Jr. :90 Days: Finding Your Place in the WordPress Community

    WordCamp Orange County 2018Speaker: Joe A Simpson Jr.

    June 11, 2018 — After years of general fatigue, a myriad of tests without an answer, a catheter was inserted through my hip eventually winding its way to my heart, discovering two blocked arteries. After successfully re-opening them, I set out on difficult cardio-rehabilitation to regain heart fitness. During the next three months (including a leave of absence from work), I set out to restore my physical, spiritual and emotional well being. This speech details a 3-month journey of rediscovery the things that nourish and nurture each of these three areas — a thirst for learning, unearthing my dormant creativity and all things WordPress.

    I set out to become more mindful of the things that bring me positive energy including truly engaging in the Community — 4 WordCamps, 16+ WordPress Meetups, and Events, designed a Wapuu, and a website build/brand to give back. From Castaic north to Palmdale (northernmost Los Angeles County), east to Riverside and all ports of call in-between (Pasadena, Whittier, Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles) learn what makes good clubs while finding a network of common minds and colorful characters and gain inspiration to start the WordPress Santa Clarita Valley Meetup, over 8,000 Miles later.

    Ibon Azkoitia: Conseguir trabajo a la comunidad WordPress

    WordCamp Gran Canaria 2018Speaker: Ibon Azkoitia

    April 22, 2018 — Hasta ahora siempre se han dado charlas sobre “Cómo colaborar en la comunidad de WordPress”, pero nunca se ha hablado de qué podemos sacar nosotros de esta colaboración.

    En este taller cuento mi vida, tal cual. Una vida de alguien que no tenía ni idea de qué estudiar ni qué hacer con su vida. Alguien que ha ido vagando día a día probando diferentes cosas pero sin un objetivo claro, hasta que encuentra la comunidad de WordPress. Me gustaría mostrar como cualquiera, y sí, cualquiera, puede encontrar aquello que le gusta y trabajo sin importar a qué se dedique.

    Contarles, con un poco de humor, cómo he pasado de fracasar en la uni, ser mecánico, trabajar por las noches en una fábrica, etc. a tener un trabajo propio o incluso trabajar en una empresa referente del mundo de WordPress.
