WordPress is the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
Everything you see here, from the documentation to the code itself, was created by and for the community. WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it.
WordPress WordCamp Bangkok 2017 was held last February 18, 2017, at C.P tower Silom Bangkok, Thailand. It was attended by people around the globe, both speakers and attendees.

WordCamp Bangkok 2017 is sponsored by different companies.
Friendly organizers that welcome everyone. They make sure that everyone got their badges and stickers for food. Checking them online at the same time.
Yay! free T-shirt, bag, lanyards and badge.
As what I have said earlier, it was attended by people around the globe. Mostly men, as we know men can stay in one room doing some programming, codes and websites.
They had Thai and English speaker. 2 rooms that allow attendees to transfer and attend what language they want. Each speaker only had 25mins to talk.
Petya Raykovska (Lady in red dress) First English speaker. Discussing how WordPress WordCamp grow. She had been to different WordCamps all over the world. Taking and sharing thoughts about WordPress and how it changed other people’s life.
Next, Andrew Dela Cerna (Happiness Engineer). Filipino guy who worked with Automatic. Obviously, he loves what he is doing. Travel a lot and no permanent place as an office. The only downside is that he works alone.
Automatic is a distributed company with 541 Automatticians in 52 countries speaking 75 different languages. Their common goal is to democratize publishing so that anyone with a story can tell it, regardless of income, gender, politics, language, or where they live in the world.
This is Isabelle Garcia. A worldwide traveller. She loves taking videos and post it online using Vinubis Video Editor a plugin for WordPress. Isabelle taught everyone how to take videos using a smartphone and upload it to WordPress then share it to a different social media platform. Isabelle’s starter pack to take videos are a smartphone, a selfie stick or a tripod and a Microphone.
WordCamp Bangkok 2017 was successful. Learned that WordPress is a really really big community and allows blogger, programmer, WordPress users and WordPress theme makers meet and greet each other.
