As a long-time WordPress enthusiast, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to volunteer at the WordCamp 2022 conference in Porto, Portugal. After attending and speaking, this was my first time volunteering at WordCamp, and it exceeded all of my expectations.
The conference took place over the course of three days in June 2022 and was packed with engaging and informative sessions on various WordPress-related topics. I was helping in Track2 as a Room Assistant, which gave me the opportunity to interact with many passionate WordPress users from all over the world.
One of the highlights of the conference was the keynote speech by Matt Mullenweg, co-founder of WordPress. He shared his insights on the latest developments in the WordPress ecosystem and provided a glimpse into the future of the platform. It was truly inspiring to hear from one of the pioneers of the WordPress community.
In addition to the keynote, there were a number of other talks and workshops that I found incredibly valuable. I attended sessions on topics ranging from plugin development and security to content marketing and SEO. I also had the chance to meet and network with other WordPress users and other developers, which was a great way to learn from their experiences and share ideas. And of course to meet with my co-workers from OnTheGoSystems and explore Porto and its cuisine.
One of the best parts of volunteering at WCEU2022 was being able to see the event come together from behind the scenes. I was able to witness all the hard work and dedication that went into organizing and running the conference, and it was truly impressive.
Overall, my experience as a volunteer at WordCamp 2022 in Porto was unforgettable. I learned a lot, made some great connections, and had a lot of fun. I would highly recommend volunteering at a WordCamp to anyone who is interested in WordPress and wants to be a part of the vibrant and growing community.
