3 Lessons from WordCamp US Day 1

Some of our Sideways8 team has been hanging out at WordCamp US and so far we are having a lot of fun! Here are a few things I have learned here:

  1. It’s always about people. You might think that WordCamps are about the talks, but they aren’t, they are about the people. I love WordCamps because I meet amazing people and learn a lot from them.
  2. Even good processes fail at first. Sometimes you might start a new process and assume it’s bad when it doesn’t work the first or second time. But even a good process will fail the first few times; it has to be tweaked and adapted multiple times to work.
  3. There is always more to learn. I have been using WordPress since 2004. It is always tempting to think I know it all. Being around these amazing people, I realize I know very little. I’m excited to learn more.

Here’s to Day 2!
