WordCamp Kent 2020: A few intro messages from a keynote speaker!

The official website of WordCamp Kent 2020 published an interesting interview with Steve Grunwell from Liquid Web, a keynote speaker. Here is what he said about what inspired him for his keynote session named "The World Beyond WordPress"... For too long, I’ve heard developers in the WordPress ecosystem be surprised to hear about the larger PHP community, but I’m the developer today because I’ve looked beyond the gates of WordPress. I’m a developer who happens to write PHP and work in WordPress, I’m not a “WordPress developer” or even a “PHP developer.” The same goes for those in other specialties: An SEO specialist should know not just how to make WordPress do something, but also see what the larger ecosystem is doing (and, if Wix is doing something that WordPress isn’t, let’s bu...

DON’T MISS THIS: How to do “online WordCamp”!?

According to the Central WordCamp site, since the pilot program for supplying production vendors to online WordCamps was announced, a few WordCamps have taken advantage of this – namely WordCamp Spain, WordCamp Santa Clarita, and the upcoming WordCamp Kent. This pilot program has proved to be a success, which means that all WordCamp organizing teams in 2020 will be able to count on this support. Through this program, WPCS (WordPress Community Support, PBC) will pay the production costs of online WordCamps hosted in 2020 with the hope that this will result in more online WordCamps during this time of uncertainty and in-person disconnection. Removing the barrier to entry for online event production should help WordCamp organizing teams focus on the thin...
