Last week I was lucky enough to attend WordCamp Netherlands in Utrecht, followed by a small WC team meetup in Amsterdam. It was great to talk about work, plan for the future, and meet new and old friends.

Rather than just attend the WordCamp I was actually a speaker. I presented a talk on user onboarding for plugins, using WooCommerce and WP Job Manager as examples and explaining the benefits and importance of a good first time experience.

Big crowd. Yikes!

Being a bit of a sociophobe and as a first time speaker (!) I was extremely nervous. I’m still not quite sure how I managed to get the courage to do it, but a huge thanks to Barry for the encouragement, advice and support. 

Although I muddled my words somewhat, I think it went reasonably okay. You can watch my presentation below.

I’d love your feedback (both good and bad) if you watched my talk so I can improve in the future, assuming I ever talk again🙂 Was it helpful? Did everything make sense? Did I waste 30 mins of your life?

Anyhow, thanks to all of those who attended!
