It was great to be able to attend WordCamp Granada for the second year at the Palacio de Congreso in Granada.
We only attended on the Saturday, for the main conference day, but it was awesome to catch up and see so many friendly faces and have the chance to network with new WordCamp attendees.
I really enjoyed the talk from fellow Automatician, Álvaro Gómez, who’s talk was on creating a website as a backup of content you would like to keep in the future. This can be done so easily on WordPress.com for free and the site can remain private so your content is safe for years to come.
This talk was the inspiration for this blog, where I can share my past experiences and keep it as a record for myself for the future.
Mauricio Gelves also shared a great talk on working remotely.
This is a subject that I enjoy and can relate to, as I have been working remotely for over a year now at Automattic.
It’s great to hear how others work remotely, and balance work with their personal lifes and travel.
Other talks I enjoyed were from Fernando Tellado, who talked about the life cycle of blog post and the steps to create good content. Fernando is a well experienced WordPress user and always shares great insight into how he uses WordPress and what works for him.
Pablo Moratinos also shared an entertaining talk on how bloggers make it big, and the importance of being consistant and sharing relevant content.
During WordCamp Granada, it was also great to be able to help out other WordPress users with issues they were facing.
As a Happiness Engineer, I help users online all around the world with their WordPress.com questions and issues, so to be able to do this in person was great.
This user even gave me a hug after I help with the Gutenberg Block on their site.
The day ended with Nilo Vélez’s talk on the history of WordPress and how it all started.
