Review:

What was good about the event?

  • Some of the People who presented the wordpress sessions were really experts.
  • Topics & sessions considered for WordCamp were very appropriate.
  • Cost of attending this event was very affordable. Also thanks to Indiblogger.in for discount coupon.
  • Opportunity to meet with some WordPress Business genius and ask questions.
  • If you are true WordPress lover. WordPress.org Badges will mean a lot to you.

What didn’t go well ?

  • First day event was delayed by one hour, second day first session on developer track was delayed by half hour.
  • Place was not really good for organizing multiple tracks. ‘C’ wing was the worst where there was no air-conditioning and lot of noise from Fans. Many people couldn’t hear presenter properly.
  • Internet connectivity affected many presentation. Some of the sessions were not planned or rehearsed well.
  • Food and Caterer was pathetic. Second day developer track dinner was thought less plan.
