I traveled to Kochi today to attend WordCamp Kochi 2017, the first ever WordCamp to happen in South India. I am waiting in the airport to return home as I write this.
Even though this was the first WordCamp in Kochi, the organizer did a wonderful job and it was planned and executed perfectly. Kudos to the organizers and volunteers.
Remote working culture in India
I was very surprised and happy to note that remote working culture has really taken off in India.
When I attended WordCamp Pune in 2015, apart from my colleges who worked at 10up, there were only one or two other people who worked remotely. But this time I found more than 10 people who are working remotely.
There were lot of foreign companies and even some local Indian companies that have adopted remote working.
I don’t get the eyeballs that I used to get earlier anymore when ever I mention that work 100% remotely 😉
My talk about increasing your productivity as a WordPress developer
I gave a talk about the different developer tools that I use to increase my productivity as a WordPress developer.
Instead of just listing down the tools or just talking about how to install/configure them which anyone can find out easily by a simple web search, I talked about my experience using these tools and the reasons why I choose these tools.
