My Remote Partner in WordCamp Europe 2019
Swansea, UK – (June 28, 2019) – WordCamps are conferences that incorporate everything and anything about WordPress. From developing programming skills through to improving client relationships, for anyone in the WordPress community, this is an opportunity to meet people that will truly help your professional growth. They have great enlightening sessions and exceptional networking possibilities.
My Remote Partner’s team is back from WordCamp Europe 2019. It took place on 20 -22 June in Berlin, Germany. The scale of the event was huge with almost 3000 attendees over the 3 days from over 90 different countries. It was the largest WordCamp to date and what an event it was!
Keyur Dave, CMO of My Remote Partner, “We had a great time as this was the first ever WordCamp MRP team attended. We have heard about the generosity of the WordPress community that comes in WordCamp Europe every year. We were amazed after witnessing the accumulated members from all around the globe. It certainly was an experience!”
WordCamp started out with the conferences and later Contributors’ Day before the main event on Thursday 20 June. The first and second day, Friday 21 June and Saturday 22 June, were the main conference days. The event concluded with an After Party on Saturday 22 June night. It was great to see the diversity of the WordPress community, with representatives ranging from freelancers to large agencies and global tech companies such as Google and Amazon.
My Remote Partner team connected with a lot of other developers, bloggers, visitors, and sponsors who were eager to learn more. During their conversation with the people over there, they got to know the problems they were facing while hiring a freelancer or full-time employees. Finding skilled freelancers or employees is not an easy job, particularly when the level of competition is growing day by day.
”As a first-time attendee to WordCamp Europe (or any WC for that matter), I was unsure what to expect. The quality of the talks was great, spanning a wide range of topics from advanced coding techniques to sales and business process improvement. It was delightful to meet so many people over the course of a few days and get some great feedback for the innovative business model we are creating with myremotepartner.com.” Neil Williams, CEO of My Remote Partner, after visiting WordCamp first time.
Most of the people who attended the session were wanting to create or start something new or to do better on their own. MRP team explained the concept of hiring a remote team on a flexible basis which, indeed, is a highly notable breakthrough in the digital era.
To give an instance, companies providing digital marketing, web development, and mobile app development services are extensively pitching on for remote workers, and its key purpose is to enhance the quality of services as well as boosting productivity. The WordPress community welcomed the concept of the new business model proposed by MRP. The whole new idea is to embrace an approach of adaptability towards the employees in the unusual routine at the workplace, particularly in the digital services organizations.
“Overall I would say it was a fantastic experience. Contributor Day was also interesting, it was great to see first hand some of the work that goes into building an open source product such as WordPress and the dedication of the various teams that make WordPress a reality and keep it moving forward.” ,said CTO Andrew Jones of My Remote Partner, “Feedback for our new business model was great and shows that our flexible model has something to offer everyone: by providing flexible resources to freelancers and micro-agencies to help prevent burnout but also finding a demand for full-time resources to work alongside larger agencies and SaaS product teams.”
The majority of WordPress community were from some companies or agencies, presenting the best opportunity to build new business connections face-to-face. And obviously, like many others, this team was super involved with networking.
COO of My Remote Partner, Kandarp Bhatt, adds “It was a remarkable WordCamp. I got to spend some moments with a lot of old colleagues, built new relationships, and listened from experts trading their opinions, concepts, experience and more. I am happy that we accomplished our agenda of introducing a new and unique model of business in the IT industry. Also, got to learn about what cool stuff people are accomplishing in the WordPress eco-space. I will admit Europe a “must visit” camp.”
It was great to see so many bright minds collaborating and bouncing new ideas off each other. To know more about the future events we are visiting, visit My Remote Partner!
