Below is the conversation we had with him about WordCamp Baroda 2014!


What are your thoughts about WordPress community in India
For past WordCamps, whenever this question would come-up, I’ve always said – It’s an upcoming community and it’s wonderful to see it growing. But I am so happy to say this time – that it is a pretty big and active community now. And it’s kick-ass.

Brief about the topic on which you’re going to speak at WordCamp Baroda, 2014 
Title of my talk is ‘A Crash Course in Typography’. Most of the web is text; if your website has text, this is relevant to you. If it’s not readable, it’s of no use. I am mostly going to talk about basics of typography and what you can do to improve yours and learn more.

A one line advice you’d like to give to everyone related to WordPress
WordPress is far more than a blogging platform. It’s a full power CMS and can also turn into an application framework. It’s the perfect way to start building websites and learn more on the way. So break things and make things.

Thanks Sid. You’ve been awesome. See you at the event 😉
