I’m Nahuai Badiola of Codigo Genesis, a Spanish Genesis tutorial-based membership site, and I’d like to share some really exciting news in this guest post!
On November 23th #GenesisBCN will be the first Spanish speaking focused Genesis event ever, organized by 3 Spanish WordPress and Genesis developers, including me.
But before talking about the actual #GenesisBCN Event, I would like to give you a bit of context.
Did you know that Spain has one of the most active WordPress communities?
- Spain is the second country with more WordPress Meetup groups (66), just after EEUU.
- The top 200 popular plugins and themes of WordPress repository are translated to Spanish.
- All WordPress support forum questions are replied in less than 24h.
Not bad, right?
Since I started been part of it, I’ve been amazed by the proactivity and generosity of the WordPress community. The best of all is that it’s quite “contagious”, so I also enjoy contributing anyway I can.
I believe that this spirit is also shared by the Genesis community. And, just as importantly, the company behind it (StudioPress/WP Engine) also does.
Indeed, I remember that this quote from the WCUS 2018 made me smile:
“We want to make the Genesis community one of the fastest-growing and most open communities in WordPress”Genesis team (WCUS 2018)
In that moment I decided that I also wanted to contribute to Genesis community’s growth (not only with translations and tutorials). And after meeting with David in WCEU 2019, a Genesis focused event began to gain weight in my mind.
That’s why I partnered with Esther Solà and David Perálvarez to create the first event for the upcoming Spanish Genesis community.
We shared the feeling that this would be the perfect opportunity to know our colleagues and share our knowledge and love for WordPress and Genesis.
Now we are happy to announce that on November 23rd the first Genesis Spanish-speaking event will take place on Barcelona.
The aim of the event is to share our knowledge of Genesis Framework and have a good time getting to know each other better.
We will start with some games and give aways (some StudioPress cool items are on it’s way) to break the ice.
After that, we have scheduled 3 talks that will cover Genesis Framework on different but complementary ways:
- Business: “Advantages of using Genesis Framework in web development business” by Esther Solà.
- Development: “Basis of child theme development with Genesis Framework” by David Perálvarez.
- Future: “The new era of Genesis Framework and how to take advantage of it as a developer” by myself, Nahuai Badiola.
After the talks we will have some time to eat and drink thanks to our sponsors (Movistar Centre and StudioPress).
This will be the perfect time to do some networking, ask questions, share anecdotes…
If you work on a daily basis with Genesis Framework or you are just starting, this could be a great opportunity to:
- Enjoy a good time with some colleges (devirtualize).
- Solve some Genesis related doubts.
- Create new collaborations.
- Have the perfect excuse to get out of your office. 😉
Moreover, thanks to our sponsors, the event will be free.
How cool is that?
