3 weeks in the past, Chic Subject matters attended WordCamp US. This WordCamp was once extremely expected because it’s been nearly 3 years since its final inception (thanks, pandemic). WCUS in any case went west and was once held in San Diego right kind on the The city & Nation hotel in Lodge Circle. At more or less 650+ attendees, this was once the smallest WordCamp US so far. However, that didn’t prevent it from handing over a much-needed spice up of neighborhood connection.

Chic Subject matters subsidized WCUS on the Bronze degree. As a sponsor, considered one of our favourite tactics to fulfill and hook up with our neighborhood is to host a morning meet-and-greet. This generally takes position over espresso, after all. We have been ecstatic to spouse with our favourite San Diegan espresso store James Espresso Co. They got here with it at the espresso and pastry entrance. However, the most efficient section was once our neighborhood of Divi customers and supporters!

I imply, a few of us created on-line friendships and connections however had but to fulfill! It was once so superb in any case assembly the ones connections IRL!
