WordCamp NYC 2016 Retrospective

However, I believe that this year’s WordCamp NYC shall leave an indelible mark in the memories of ALL who attended and possibly on the WordCamp space as a whole.


Some of the highlights worth noting are the 12167 page views on this site for the weekend and fact that we achieve a sustained trending on Twitter.


We had over 150 contributor day registrations which is a feat that I have been told rivals the size of some WordCamps. However WordCamp NYC is not all about developers and designers. We have a strong user and administrator community as evident from the attendance on Saturday and Sunday during the regular sessions.

We as a community came together and bonded over WordPress and nearly the entire New York Open Source community. We worked with the other participating conferences like PyGotham and React and Angular and shared in the after party where ALL attendees had a chance to rub elbows, network and share in the camaraderie of open source software.

We even had a surprise lightning session presented by Andrew Nacin at the end of Sunday just prior to closing remarks.

Therefore as my term comes to an end, I look back on this WordCamp and contemplate all that has been achieved. The last three years with WordCamp NYC, prove that #WCNYC can be more than a biennial event and I would like to once again say thank you to everyone in the community; organizers, volunteers, speakers, sponsors, central mentors, the team at open camps, the United Nations and of course all of the attendees, for making this a truly outstanding event.
