We did it!

Well WordCamp Auckland 2017 is all wrapped up for the year. We wanted to say thank you to everyone who shared the experience with us, what a rush!

Keep the conversation going

We spoke a lot about community at WCAKL2017 – if you are interested in meeting up, reaching out or starting your own local community here are some options:

  • WordPress New Zealand Slack: This is where all organisers, developers, designers, journalists, users and anyone involved in WordPress NZ discuss online: http://wpnz-slack.herokuapp.com – join us!
  • Auckland WordPress Meetup: Happens every month, announcements normally 2 weeks in advance also #wpauckland in slack.
  • Wellington WordPress Meetup: In the process of restarting, but reach out in #wpwellington channel on slack.
  • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aklwp
  • Twitter: https://twitter.com/aucklandwp

If you want to contact Ralf Klis or Tarei King, ping either directly in WordPress New Zealand Slack.


We have recorded all videos – there is a fair amount of post-editing work required as we manually cut in speaker slides, this might take a month or so. But we will do an announcement post / email when they are available.

Speaker Slides

These will be arriving in due course – we will post another update once we’ve collated them all.


You might have heard us say the budget will be released online – in a continued effort from all participating WordCamp’s (we first saw this at WCSydney, so props them!) we will be releasing the budget once we paid our last few vendors. Expect this be the end of the month.

A quick ooopps

In the last minute rush we’d forgotten to put our community sponsors on the website, combined with a rush of projector issues in our closing remarks timeslot – we also weren’t able to showcase them there either.

To say thank you – we’ve emailed our community sponsors and will post an individual thank you via twitter.

Thank you – seriously!

We had some a great time meeting everyone, sharing stories and generally having fun with other WordPress community members – if you need any help out there, please get in touch – quickest way is slack, but any of the other contact methods will be fine!
