THANK YOU! to everyone who participated at 2016 Joburg WordCamp

2016 Johannesburg WordCamp has come and gone…

I for one, am proud to have been associated with the successful launch of South / Southern Africa’s second WordCamp with and together with my colleagues from WordPress Gauteng, WordPress Joburg, WordPress Pretoria and WordPress East Rand, I applaud your efforts, participation and support and as many delegates and speakers have tweeted – “You guys rock!”

From here, we can only grow as WordPress enthusiasts from 2016 WordCamp network and support each other and with great strides in innovation and entrepreneurship blossoming here in Africa, we should see increasing numbers of WordPress users from township and urban areas eventually follow some of the paths of the large media houses who presented their case studies and reasoning of why they chose WordPress to power their brands to millions of Southern Africans.

All of this made me feel good – knowing that I’m part of a movement of providing meaningful content that hopefully, benefits the people of this land.

Thank you again to everyone that participated in 2016 Johannesburg WordCamp – the organising committee, the volunteers, the speakers and all of the delegates who spent a couple of days with us to share their knowledge and experience.

2017 Johannesburg WordCamp… here we come!

For and Behalf of 2016 Johannesburg WordCamp
