October gave rise to my first WordCamp in Manchester and a fun time was had by all. If you have never been to a WordCamp there is something for everyone in the WordPress community, whether that be as a designer, a developer or a website owner. It turned out to be a great weekend put together by the WordPress Community.
There were a host of fantastic speakers full of knowledge and expertise and there was something to learn from everyone. With the exception of the lightning talks, all talks were recorded and will be on WordPress TV.
Factory were proud to be a micro sponsor of WordCamp Manchester this year, but amongst the bigger sponsors we met representatives from Automattic, 34SP, Jetpack, WooCommerce, Bytemark and more.
As part of the Lightning Talks, Andi summoned up some courage and gave a talk on some of the common client difficulties designers might run into and how to avoid them. All told it was a great weekend, we met some great people and we cannot wait for the next WordCamp
