March 15, 2017 — WordCamps are really a great place/event to get a lot of learnings, meeting new people, know more of WordPress and many more. All the attendees make the investment of their time and money to attend different WordCamps and therefore they are always very curious to know about ways they can get the most out of the WordCamp. Through all my personal experience attending different camps and interactions with other WordCamp attendees, I have compiled a checklist of things that would be very useful to all attendees of the WordCamp – for this one as well as all the future WordCamps.

January 26, 2017 — “What is your wish for WP in 2017?” That was one of the questions the VINUBIS crew and I asked to our interviewees at WordCamp US.
From “more REST API” and “better user experience”, to “improved theme or plugin repositories,” we got a little bit of all! Just watch all our WCUS interviews on the VINUBIS Video Editor Youtube channel.
A few interesting conversations arose around the growth of the Asian WordPress community. Some of the main representatives of this community were present at WCUS and they shared with us their hopes for a “WordCamp Asia.” Probably not in 2017, but hopefully in 2018, as they all explain in this video.
