WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/05/12

I learned an important lesson this weekend. When you spend time creating content, the world will never see or read it if you don’t hit “Publish!”  Lesson learned!

From WordCamp Pune comes this video.

Careers in WordPress for Non-Developers

Are you a designer, communicator, or other non-coder? Do you wonder if and how you can fit into a WordPress agency? Are you a student looking for a career path that excites you?

And from WordCamp Lancaster.

So called digital natives might pick up tech skills easily, but that doesn’t mean they intuit everything tech-related – there is plenty to teach and learn, especially when it comes to a robust storytelling tool like WordPress.

 

 

WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/11/18

The videos highlighted this week are geared towards getting young people involved in WordPress, blogging and programming.

As the grandfather of a 9 year old granddaughter, I find myself  talking with her parents discussing technology, internet safety, security, blogging, programming, etc.

I would love to chat with someone who is involved in a program for kids. This is something that I have on my “To Do” list for the WordPress Community Interview Series. If you know of someone or would like to chat about the it, please leave a comment!

The first video is from WordCamp Cape Town 2015. There is a local program called Code 4 Cape Town that encourages young women to become involved in technology to create a greater diversity in the South African tech industry.

The next video comes from WordCamp Orange County 2016. It is a fact that that children are using gadgets at an earlier age every year. Tabitha talks about getting kids involved in WordPress.
