WordCamp Delhi 2017 was held on 19th August, 2017 at NDMC Convention Centre, Parliament Street, New Delhi.

It was a full-day conference with multiple sessions on Technical, Non-Technical and Commercial topics related to WordPress.

Renowned experts have shared their views and experiences that were extremely helpful for all the WordPress Users.

This awesome event was sponsored by the reputed companies like Bluehost, GoDaddy, Automatic, ResellerClub and lots more.

If you are completely new to the WordPress, you can read more about it here.

My Journey to WordCamp Delhi 2017 from Kolkata:

When I first read about this event on ShoutMeLoud (by Harsh Agrawal), I took a quick decision.

That I will attend this event, for sure.

And I made it happen, finally.

But everything was NOT so easy.

As I was to convince my family members about the same.

It took me a few days to convince them (as they were not aware of Blogging, WordPress and all).

And by that time, most of the event tickets were sold.

That’s one of the main reasons we couldn’t manage to join this event as a team.

However, my family members joined me, shared the bills and beard the pain of staying with a laptop minded guy.

Yup! You guessed right.

I was talking (just) about myself.

Why Did I Join WordCamp Delhi 2017:

There were several reasons that lead me to join this awesome event.

I am going to share most of them with you so that you can listen to your inner-calls to Join the Upcoming WordCamps.

My objectives for attending this event included (but not limited to) the followings:

  • to meet some like-minded people.
  • to learn from experts.
  • to make my Personal Brand stronger.
  • to get a few leads.
  • to gain solid confidence in Public Speaking.
  • to build rapport with some industry experts.
  • to let experts validate (and guide me about) my upcoming projects.
  • to obtain some extra eye-balls to my live digital ventures.
  • to enjoy the tasty foods.
  • to volunteer the WordPress Community to grow.

Personal Talk (Behind the Curt):

I have started for Delhi from Kolkata by train with my parents on 16th August and reached there on the next day – exactly 2 days before the event.

There we first met my elder sister along with her family who were from Hyderabad.

After that, we checked-in to our pre-booked rooms at Hotel B. B. Palace.

We enjoyed staying there a lot.

Now, let’s talk about the event.

Pre-Launch Enjoyments:

There was a rainy morning on 19th August, 2017 in Delhi.

But out of extra-excitement I have reached the venue at right time and took part in various Pre-Launch (Self) Enjoyments like taking photographs (including selfies), tea, coffee and snacks, light talks with co-attendees, etc.

The bottom line is the event was full of excitements from the first to last.

People were warmly welcoming each other to this event irrespective of everything.

Event Overview:

There were two different tracks viz. Track-1 and Track-2 at the WordCamp Delhi 2017 where two different live sessions were going on simultaneously.

And the attendees were free enough to attend either of them as per their own preferences.

I’ll be mentioning Track-1 and Track-2 as T-1 and T-2 respectively from now onwards.

What Else:

Apart from the main event and the most sober co-attendees, there were lots of other points of attraction.

Also, I met with Mr. Harsh Agrawal (My Dream Blogger) personally during this event and I was also presented an Wireless Mouse by one of the ResellerClub representatives.

Here, I want to disclose that I could not attend the Track-2 sessions all by myself as I considered they are mostly for the WordPress Beginners and Developers (and I am not none of these two).

However, I have put relevant links along with the sessions I have mentioned above.
