WordCamp Cape Town: Democratising Community

Today I presented a talk titled Democratising Community at WordCamp Cape Town 2016. Even though I gave an intro talk last year, this is actually my first real WordCamp talk and it’s one that I’m hugely passionate about. I spoke about how people can give back to the WordPress community in real, effective and tangible ways – a topic that I could talk about all day long.

The video of the talk is up on and you can watch it right here:

To go along with that, here are my slides from the talk (which are displayed in the video as well as they are needed) that include the URLs that I mentioned for a quick reference:

As an added bonus, one of the attendees (and workshop presenters) at WordCamp, Steve Barnett, made a nifty sketch of my talk while I was speaking:

      I don’t have a contact form on purpose (as I just ended up getting so many unwanted messages when I did have one). You’re welcome to tweet at me, send me a direct message on Twitter, or find me on the Making WordPress Slack (if you’re on there) 🙂
