WordCamp Nagpur 2017 Experience


All the members of Bhopal community were too excited about WordCamp Nagpur but unfortunately it was not possible for everyone to attend the WordCamp.

It started with a chilled morning as we arrived at 4:15 am in the morning and soon we went to the retiring room – special thanks to Indian railways for providing such a facility, after taking a hour nap we were all set and energised for WordCamp.

I would like to introduce my friends Aditya Shah, Manglam Gupta and Prateek Shukla. I and Aditya were volunteer at WordCamp Nagpur and had a duty at community room. Finally we reached the venue that was Chitnavis centre , the place was very good and attractive . We met other attendees and volunteers at the centre and in some time all the organisers and volunteer were there and everything started with the lighting speed. Registration desk was set up at the first place and all the id cards and kits were distributed.

First day of WordCamp was very good and interesting as it was a great experience meeting great speakers and great people in WordCamp. After the WordCamp we found a hotel in nagpur at a very interesting area that doesn’t sleeps at night at that particular time of Ramzan. We took rest for about 4-5 hours in the hotel room and than a great task was waiting for us , the ultimate vegetarian food finding challenge that is very difficult in Nagpur but eventually we succeeded after travelling 4 kms from our place and returned back to the hotel room after our food challenge.

The night was very interesting as the whole area of our stay was a very big market that were selling various and interesting stuffs around. After roaming in the whole area with a great crowd present there that was totally unexpected for us as the population is quite less in Nagpur . We finally went back to our hotel after roaming aroud for a nap around 3:00 am .

The second day of WordCamp was another interesting day with so many speakers and parallel sessions around. Sponsors were given Sponsor Desks for interacting with the attendees in WordCamp. It is always been a pleasure to meet sponsors at WordCamp and i really wanna thank for all the super cool stuff especially for the batches we got and even a wireless mouse from reseller club.

WordCamp Nagpur was a real success and even there was a momento for every volunteer stating thanks for supporting WordCamp.

We left the centre around 6:00 pm as we were having our train at 10:00 pm for bhopal and went for dinner at a cool italian restaurant guided by Abhishek Despande – Lead organiser of WordCamp Nagpur. Soon after our dinner we went to the railway station with an auto rickshaw and came back to bhopal after an overnight journey.
