Hold on, But What is a WordCamp?

WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress.”

It is organized by volunteers from the WordPress community where WordPress developers, designers, writers/bloggers, and casual users can attend this conference, exchange ideas, get to know each other and mingle in an informal setting.
It helps attendees learn new things, catch up on the latest trends in WordPress, hear from experts exchanging their views, ideas, experience and more.
Besides this, it’s also a networking platform with like-minded people from the WordPress community all gather under one roof.
For sure this WordCamp in Pune will be one of the best conferences happening in the year 2019.
