This is the first edition of the WordCamp in Ile-Ife and also the first year for Organizer, Tosin Ogunfowote. As a former volunteer for WordCamp Lagos, Ogunfowote justifies attendance as a worthwhile and valuable experience.
He said “Giving the local community of Ile-Ife, one of the best tech conferences in the city – adding value and exposing how we can power the world of today digitally,”
He promises an experienced line-up of speakers drawn nationwide from leading web hosting companies in Nigeria, Software Development Companies and others.
Ogunfowote said, “The speakers are well exposed. They have been in their craft for a while now and they are coming in from all around the country. So, attendees shouldn’t just be focused on one part of learning. Sessions are wide enough to touch every aspect of individual endeavour in the conference.”
Allaying fears of any technical know-how requirement, he said, “WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open-source personal publishing software that powers over 75million sites on the web. You don’t need any technical know-how to attend a WordCamp, perhaps you would be leaving the event with quite a number of them in your paws. One of our sessions focuses on showing how to build a website using Gutenberg. This would be taught from beginners level.”
