What We Learned From WordCamp Raleigh 2017

Here’s a look at what we learned from WordCamp Raleigh:

“I learned some great insight about technical SEO within the WordPress platform. I learned how to be better maximizing productivity, and I learned not to eat so many [delicious Rise] doughnuts.”
John Bowman, Digital Marketing Specialist

“Screaming Frog and Beam Us Up Crawler tools are great to use for website and SEO audits.”
Keri Giordano, Support Manager

“I enjoyed learning tips for shooting better videos, like aperture settings, how interior lights warp the true color of “white”, zooms, and if possible, always record a subject outside or with as much natural light as possible. And I learned the crazy fact that some people are getting plastic surgery so they look better in selfies, but the thing to know is the selfie lens itself is flawed.”
Sharon Dawson, Marketing Manager
“It was great connecting with other project managers to trade ideas and learn the synergies between our styles and new ideas I can implement.”
Christopher Lara, Project Manager
“I got to eat tacos, bro. I also got to rail on code cruft with other developers that get it.”
Rocky Stone, Senior Web Developer
