In January, a friend suggested I attend the WordPress Meetup in Lagos, since I was in the city. I thought, "What harm would it do?" and decided to go.
Little did I know that just that one day would change everything for the next couple of weeks.
I discovered they had a conference coming up. Not just any conference by the way. It's a WordCamp, the first in Nigeria.
WordCamp Lagos 2018
promises to be a day filled with lots of talks, and workshops. We have several sponsors backing the event e.g JetPack, WordPress (of course), Woo Commerce and more.
There will also be a workshop for teens (discounted ticket, only 20). And there's the Happiness Bar, which is a desk that WordPress developer can approach with their challenges and get help.
So what was my Good Deed? Well, since I heard about the event, I volunteered to be part of the organizers. I applied to speak as well. I was taken up on both offers. Since joining I have had a nice time working with other WordPress enthusiasts, who give their all to make things move forward in the community .
I'm happy to be a part of this new family.
