WordCamp Cape Town 2014

Want to win a ticket to WordCamp Cape Town 2014? Then read on…

It’s that time of year again – time for WordCamp Cape Town. This year’s WordCamp is going to be at the same venue as last year, but it will have more depth and more enriching content that previous years. The main reason for this is that we have added workshops to the schedule and they’re all set to offer the technical depth that was lacking last year.

On top of that we’re also adding an element that I’m really looking forward to – the first Contributor Day to be held on the African continent. This is particularly exciting for me as I’ve recently been discovering just how much one can do to give back to WordPress and just how rewarding it can be. I’m stoked to be able to introduce more people from our community to the joys of contributing.

We also have the traditional after party and awesome swag along with great food and coffee during the conference (seriously – the food alone is worth being at the conference for). If you’re even remotely interested in WordPress then you would be crazy to miss this conference.

I’m also going to be leading a workshop on building your first WordPress plugin – check out the details here.

I have one ticket for WordCamp Cape Town 2014 that I’m going to be giving away right here on this blog! All you have to do to win the ticket is to comment on this post and tell me the one thing that excites you most about WordPress and I’ll pick the winner from the comments at 10:00 on Monday morning (20 October 2014).

    I find it exciting that you can change the look & feel of your blog in a split second and you don’t have to be a dev to do it.

    Hi Hugh

    It’s definitely Hooks (Actions and Filters) – The building blocks to customising every great WordPress website. 🙂

    Its EASY to setup, manage and use!!
    Flexible and dynamic with an ever-growing community that contributes to development. Modules are awesome, choice is fantastic according to requirement and support is awesome.

    I recommend WordPress frequently to clients and friends 🙂

    My favourite thing about WordPress is that it’s not just a web framework, it’s Community, everyone gets involved – From pro’s to beginners hacking away, its a family.

    It is easy to understand and it teaches you thing that you will be doing in programs that are going to be more advanced like dreamweaver and many other and its fun to use. And I makes blogs for people easy 🙂

    For me its difficult to choose one part of WordPress that excites me. Overall everything in WordPress is amazing , the ease of use in general makes WordPress Boss… But if i had to choose one thing that excites me about using WordPress it would be using plugins.
    Thats the game- changer right there !
