Last weekend, where everyone celebrating WordPress, it feels, we are not only celebrating WordPress; instead, we are celebrating our true love, happiness, and dedication towards WordPress. It’s like, not just a technology but more of person, celebrating the joy which allows earning πŸ™‚

Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little are not only the founder of WordPress but also an idol and the motivator for millions of users include Blogger, Freelancer, Developer, Techie, Non-techie, Businessman, Enterprises and more. They inspire us to work harder, support people, and grow together.

How Ahmedabad Community Celebrates the WPBirthday:-

WordPress Ahmedabad Community gathered to celebrate an event with Dinner, Wapuu Cake, and Game. Chetan Prajapati and I were the Hosts for the day. It was an honor to be a Host to celebrate, with the help of other folks, who always been there to support.

The main reason for organizing this event was not only celebrating WordPress but also to meet new faces, encourage them to be in the Community. And we are glad to have new folks who join us for the first time, and they too enjoy the event.

First, we get to know each other with dinner and a lovely discussion where we found some interesting stories of the people, about how they get started with WordPress.

Let me share with you a funny answer; how do you see yourself working with WordPress in the future?

And the answer makes us smile:- She says, “I will work with WordPress till WordPress comes to an end. OMG πŸ™‚ So that means, if there are people like such, I am sure WordPress is not going to end, and it has a long life” We enjoyed a lot, learn and share the knowledge, laugh together, ate together and it was fun meeting with all fantastic people.

We talk about Meetups, WordCamps, and conferences held in a different city. Channels that are used to get connected, support. The importance and benefits of attending such events.

In Ahmedabad, we organize WPMeetup ones in every month, and share the details on Meetup.com, get yourself subscribe here to get the future updates. Our main motto is to connect with more people, network, and share knowledge. We find New Speaker every month to talk and share their knowledge. That way, we can practice and grow ourselves to be a WordCamp Speaker one day πŸ™‚ wow!!!!. Also, it helps us to reduce the stage fear and an opportunity of learning with fun πŸ™‚
