WordCamp Manchester 2018

Now an annual event, this weekend I attended and spoke at WordCamp Manchester which, I believe is one of the best WordCamps around the world!

WordCamp Manchester has been going for a few years now. In fact I have spoken at a number of events over the years and this years event was no different. My talk, titled “Transitioning to a block-based editor in a pre-Gutenberg world” was selected.

WordCamp London 2018 – What an Amazing Weekend

Last weekend was the annual trip down to the capital for the WordCamp London conference. It is always a terrific event and a chance to meet up with some old friends. This weekend did not disappoint and was a cracker!

The weekend always starts early on a Friday morning. In fact it could start on a Thursday as there is a contributor day (where you can help contribute to the open source WordPress project) on the Friday. However this would mean just too long away from the family.

WordCamp Manchester 2017

The last weekend in October is usually WordCamp Manchester weekend and this weekend was no different. The event has been held for a number of years now and is always a great success.

A Weekend at WordCamp Bristol

This weekend saw the next in a series of conferences about WordPress (the software I use to build websites with) happening in Bristol. This weekend was the very first WordCamp Bristol and was an opportunity to visit a city which I have not been to before.

Having booked a lovely looking AirBnB house this time I decided to have a little road trip, picking up a friend and fellow WordPress enthusiast Jonny. The journey down to Birmingham to collect Jonny and also onward to Bristol was wonderful with no traffic issues. We have one stop near to Bristol to get some lunch.
