This year, I had the pleasure of giving back to the WordPress community by helping organize WordCamp Omaha 2018. Not only did I lend a hand with the website, I also planned and managed volunteer activities. I learned a lot about putting an event like this together and had a great time doing it with awesome people. I won’t lie; there were times that I considered backing out of it and giving up but in the end, I’m glad I stuck with as the whole event turned out really well.
If you’re a WordPress user of any skill level; complete newbie, expert admin, or a rockstar developer, I would highly encourage you to find a WordCamp near you and attend it. Better yet, volunteer at it and you’ll probably get in for free! There’s a little something for everyone, it’s a great opportunity to meet interesting people, and it’s incredibly fun.
