There were two tracks for the talks so participants can pick and choose which talk they want to join.
Furthermore, a total of 17 talks were available for all the participants that came, some of the speakers title were “Create Once, Publish Everywhere with WordPress” by Leonardo Losoviz, Sanjay Willie talk “WordPress CLI in depth” and much more. Each talk was around 30 minutes and there were questions and answers session with the speaker after their talk.

Coffee and tea was also provided during break time, to keep you refreshed and awake. We also made lots of new friends with similar interests in WordPress and the tech world
