• bucket list – post WordCamp London 2015

    I attended WordCamp London 2015 from 20th – 22nd March. Prior to the event I wrote my bucket list for things to achieve before I left. Now I have an even longer list of things to do. If you want to help me complete my bucket list, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Abbreviated version: work on www.oik-plugins.com/oik-plugins/oik-clone-clone-your-wordpress-content/ before (nearly) all the others in the list.

    Full version:

    New bucket list

    Originally scribbled on the the train from Waterloo down to Rowlands Castle, Sunday 22nd and transcribed to a private post on 24th…

    Some of these items were prompted by the speakers, some through discussions with the sponsors and the rest through conversation with attendees of both contributor day and the main event. It was a fantastic weekend and thanks to everyone who made it happen.
