Elicus’ Journey at WordCamp Bhopal 2023

Continuing our love for WordPress and the journey we embarked on more than a decade ago, the team had the opportunity to visit the city of Lakes Bhopal for our next WordCamp event. Being a company that is fully based on products and services related to WordPress it was a great opportunity to meet and connect with fellow WordPress users and professionals.

Starting from the Openverse walk in the lush Van Vihar along the lakeside on the 7th Oct 23 till the end with a scintillating after-party on the evening of 8th Oct. The whole experience was incredible for the team Elicus. We got an opportunity to meet hundreds of fellow users at the event, connect with them, and share stories.

Our other goal for sponsoring and attending the WordCamp event is to provide our team with a platform to explore the beauty of the WordPress community. The Contributor Day was the perfect event for this with more than a hundred contributors to get inspired.

The Contributor Day

The Contributor Day in the WordCamp Bhopal 2023 turned out to be a great inspiration and provided our team with a learning curve on how to contribute to WordPress. There were dedicated tables classified as WordPress core contribution, documentation, support, tutorials, polyglots, and photos. More than a hundred attendees joined this event with great enthusiasm where everyone learned and made some live contribution to WordPress.

The major takeaway of team Elicus from the Contribution Day was some great tips on contributing to WordPress support with great zeal. The team got a chance to learn some great tips from table lead Prathamesh Palve on being humble and provide a very detailed solution to users looking for any help on the WordPress official support site.

The development team of Elicus joined the core contribution table to get tips on contributing to the WordPress core. The team also got hands-on translating WordPress in different languages at the polyglots table. We also get a chance to know about Learn WordPress, the way we can benefit from the great existing content, and even recommend or create resources for WordPress learners.

Milestone: The WordPress Photo Directory at the time of the event was just a few short of 10,000. The directory now has touched 5 digits figure. Here is a read about it on WPTavern blog on touching the 10,000 mark.

The Main Event

Visitors

Every WordCamp event is full of energy, compassion, learning, questions, and every good thing you can imagine. Elicus was one of the silver sponsors of the WordCamp Bhopal 2023 and we got a booth set up to present our products and services. The team had a very engaging time and we got a chance to connect with a large number of WordPress users and enthusiasts.

We were thrilled to meet such a large number of students who attended the event to learn more about WordPress, the community, and the scope of careers around this amazing platform.

We received ideas for new products and also introduced users to our brands diviextended.com and wpmozo.com. The excitement still languishes about meeting those amazing people.

We gifted some souvenirs to our visitors too. A mousepad and coffee mug.
