Are you ready for 2017?

Thank you all for coming to WordCamp Singapore 2016.

We started off with small goals and lots of worries on our side. WordPress was not huge in Singapore and the progressive nature of our society made it really daunting to attempt to run a conference with an almost entirely sponsored budget.

2 years ago, after we had restarted the WordPress Singapore community from the then inactive WordPress User Group Singapore, we started talking about WordCamp Singapore.

The fact that it happened is still sinking in. But we know that we enjoyed every single moment with every single person that attended.

This time, we had speakers, attendees, sponsors and volunteers from Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Australia, Russia, China, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines, United Kingdom, Poland,  and went from an initial projected 100 attendees to a whooping 230.

Planning for WordCamp Singapore 2017 has already started but before we are able to do anything really meaningful – we need your help to give us some feedback for this year’s WordCamp. You can do so at the Google Form here.

Lastly, if you have taken any photos and you would like to share, please drop us a link to a storage or let us know of alternatives method via singapore@wordcamp.org

At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Delivering on this mission starts with great technology, but great technology alone is not enough. Too many of technology’s benefits have yet to reach the people who need them. Just as there is an extremely effective commercial ecosystem that brings the promise of technology to life in the marketplace, there must be a strong societal ecosystem that brings the promise of technology to life in the community space. To fulfill our company mission and truly empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, we, ourselves, need to do more. Empowerment begins with inclusion.
