WCKTM 2017 Photography Competition


Now if you have been to last year’s WordCamp then you must have known that the attendees were taking some random shots, some of you may have noticed some strangers taking your shot and the first thought that hit your head; do we have a paparazzi on this event?

Well, to cut things short, they weren’t. We had run a photography competition and we are giving continuity to that in this WordCamp too.

Just click any workshop, announcement, activity, rush, success stories, happy faces, singles, groups, food, tickets, t-shirts… Just about anything within the WCKTM 2017. On the very day, upload it to your Facebook timeline or Twitter with hash tag #wcktm2017.

The rules are simple:

  • #wcktm2017 – Do not forget the hashtag.
  • Photographs must be from the event WordCamp Kathmandu 2017 itself and that includes After Party.
  • You can use any type of camera, DSLR, Digital, Mobile, even watches… 
  • No editing the photos or use of filters.
  • Upload as many photos as you like. More the #wcktm2017 photos, more the chances to win. 
  • Picture must be uploaded before mid-night, the same day.
  • Winners will be selected next day based on the frame captured. Here, quality is how you see the event through your devices, not size.

So go on and click as many photographs as you want. Capture your memories, share them with us and get a chance to win amazing gifts! Gifts would be some Swags and it’s totally worth it!

Recommendation for Workshop attendees


So we are almost here. The event is this Saturday and we are all excited for this. Organizers and volunteers are giving all their time to the event and we have been having meetings day-in and day-out. While a lot needs to be done from the organizer, volunteer and speaker side. There is a lot that you (attendees) can do as well.

This post however is dedicated to those who will be attending the Workshop on “Kickstart WP REST with VueJS”. Workshop are generally where you sit with your laptop and actually learn something. So basically we will have speakers, helping you get started with WP Rest with VueJS. The session is focused for beginners  and will cover how you can get started with the same.  Now while, they will show you how to setup everything, but there are a few recommendation that would help speed up the session.

You may want to bring your own laptop with node js and npm/yarn installed.
Also a fresh install of WordPress, with a child theme of Twenty Seventeen or any other of your choice activated.

However, if you do not know how to install the prior, don’t sweat. You can still attend the workshop and learn how to install and get started with it. Overall we think this will be a great workshop and an awesome learning experience.

We hope to see you there. Until then, ciao.
