WordCamp Vancouver 2015

Wordcamp Vancouver 2015 was a great success!

I was very proud to be one of the Speakers for the Vancouver WordPress convention this year which took place at the BCIT downtown campus.

My talk: “Shortcut to choosing your WordPress Theme” was part of the Training Track sessions.  These were small class room based talks to help new users to WordPress learn how to get the most out of their themes, keep them secure and other useful information.



One of the most difficult task for beginners once dealing with WordPress is to pick the right theme. There are so many Free and Premium themes available on the market place now that it can be overwhelming and time consuming.

In this talk, I shared a few tips and my shortcut to make this step fun and interesting. I told the audience how to plan their site and where to look for themes. I also explain the main differences between Free and Premium themes.

This training track session was basically an excerpt from my book “Make Your Own WordPress Website From Scratch” which I recently published and that goes through the Themes dilemma in depth.

I can’t wait for WordCamp Vancouver 2016!
