Meet These Founders and Their Teams at WordCamp Asia 2024

WordCamp – a conference about everything WordPress. That’s what it is commonly referred to as. But this conference is much more than that.

Speaking from experience, our team at WPfounders has attended WordCamps across the globe, from the US and EU to WordCamp Asia 2023.

All these conferences are a great excuse to meet new people, start collaborations, and meet your friends and team from the WordPress community worldwide.

To break down WordCamps in all fairness, these conferences have three significant aspects. They are the people, the business, and the community‘s contributions. 

The People Side of WordCamps

What makes WordCamps beam with energy are the people that attend from various parts of the world, different backgrounds, cultures, and countries, all flying into a single city to get together and talk about their favourite topic, which is WordPress. 

These events are why people travel to different parts of the world for the first time, and once they reach their destination, they feel like they are in their familiar place. Exploring a new city or being a tour guide to first-time visitors to a town is a great activity that people do. 

The Business Side of WordCamps

Large and even small companies or individuals with new WordPress products participate in WordCamps to spread awareness about their latest products and features. These conferences are great for getting first-hand feedback about new offerings. 

It is always exciting to meet the teams behind WordPress products, make a human connection, and even explore ways for collaborations between businesses and people. 

The Contributor’s Side of WordCamps

These conferences, whether big or small, are an excellent place for contributors to get together, pick up a task, focus, and complete it.

Open source software needs contributors, and in WordCamps, it is highly encouraged that new people get started on their contributor journey and that previous contributors work on something new. 

There is definitely more to it than WordCamps, and the best way to make the most out of these events is to plan what you want to achieve by attending the event.

One way to plan is to know which people and companies are coming and which ones are worth meeting up with.

What These Founders Say About WordCamps

At WPfounders, we are in a unique position where we can talk to so many founders and their teams directly and get to know their opinions. 

Here is what founders say about WordCamps whose teams or they themselves are attending WordCamp Asia’24.

Davinder Singh of The WP Weekly

If you are unfamiliar with the industry, work with other people to get a feel of the ecosystem. If you get a chance to work with a bigger agency, then do it even if you get less money for it.

If you haven’t attended any WordCamp or meetup, you should do it immediately. It’s a chance to know the WordPress world, WordPress people, products and make connections.
