wordcamp-logoWordCamp is locally organized and an informal gathering, which invites people ranging from blogging newbies to professional WordPress Developers. More commonly, it aggregates scheduled programming with unconference sessions and other activities. It covers everything about an open source publishing software, WordPress. The first WordCamp was conducted in San Francisco by Matt Mullenweg in the year 2006.

A two-day long event, WordCamp Mumbai 2015 is going to be enthralling yet informative that will promise a lot of learning and interaction between a vibrant WordPress community of bloggers, designers and developers. This two-day event will be held on 7th-8th March, 2015. Participants of this event will witness sessions on how to leverage WordPress, beginning plugin and theme development, advanced techniques, security etc.

At this event, a hoard of avid WordPress users will showcase their knowledge on WordPress and its different implications. Akshay Raje, Amit Sharma, Bigul Malayi, Bryce Adams, Faishal Sayed are amongst the few speakers at the WordCamp 2015. Of them, is Gaurav Pareek, a Senior Software Developer who is currently associated with Digital Vidya which is a digital marketing training company.

photoGaurav who is an avid GNU/Linux advocate, started off his WordPress journey in 2010. He has got hands-on experience of using WordPress, which is evident from the fact that he has built more than a hundred websites using WordPress. At WordCamp 2015, Gaurav will be speaking on ‘Better WordPress Development With Vagarant’. Vagrant is a developer’s tool, which allows creation and maintenance of reproducible and portable sandboxed development environments for software development and testing. Primarily, he is going to talk about using Vagrant for WordPress development.

He will be highlighting upon the following concepts during his session on using Vagrant for better WordPress Development. The ‘Works on My Machine’ syndrome is a very common problem in scenarios where more than one developer is involved. More often than not, this can be blamed on undocumented, half-baked, or unstable development environments.

Some common scenarios include:

  • Multiple projects with different dependency chains
  • Multiple projects with same dependencies in different versions
  • Multiple development machines, each at a different point in their project timeline.
  • Multiple people, working on multiple platforms.

All this usually results in code not working. In cases where software such as WordPress, which has a huge history of cowboy coding is involved, the situation is even more out of control. This is where Vagrant comes in, as it allows packaging a development environment into a portable container with the help of virtualization technologies, paired with powerful provisioning tools such as Chef and Puppet.

Vagrant allows developers/teams to keep their development environment in simple text files, which can be prepared and run using one simple command. This makes development by various people, working on different platforms, much easier and cleaner.

This talk deals with how Vagrant can be implemented by all sorts of people, both developers and designers/theme reviewers, to make their lives easier by using it for creating and maintaining portable, reusable, and sandboxed development environments.

If you wish to know more about WordPress and want to learn how to leverage upon this tool, Vagrant for better WordPress management, then book your tickets now and meet the who’s who at WordCamp 2015.

      Great to know that!
      Are these wordcamps organized by Digital Vidya or Digital Vidya is just representing itself?
