WordPress is more than a product: for many of its users, it’s also a diverse community of capable, passionate people. An important part of Pressable’s work with the WordPress community is our team’s participation in various WordCamps as sponsors, organizers, volunteers and speakers. In today’s post, we’re celebrating the WordPress community by looking back at some of our favorite WordCamp talks from the past year.
