WordCamp Central
Thank you _/\_ WordCamp Central

Nashik WordPress Meetup group would like to thank you for the trust you showed upon “Nashik” and giving us an opportunity to Organize a WordCamp in our beloved city!

We are also thankful to our awesome Sponsors, Volunteers, Mentors, Speaker, Attendees and others who have been involved in making WordCamp Nashik happen!

We want to keep the spirit, and continue the same for coming years!

We are working on the Transparency report! As soon as it gets ready, We will publish it!

The best way to network at #WCNashik is to get a Gravatar


The best way for other attendees to recognise you and do a little background research on you is by looking at your profile on the Who’s Attending page. It let’s them view your twitter handle.

This way, other attendees can seek you out and maybe together you could come up with something interesting.

However, how does one recognise you, if the photo is replaced with NAPUU?

Get a Gravatar

The photo is picked automatically from your email address, if it is registered at All you have to do is, add the email address that you bought the ticket with to your existing gravatar profile.

If you don’t have a gravatar profile, create one. You can add all your email addresses and even have different photos for different emails. Here’s a little article on why to use gravatars.

In addition to the WordCamp Nashik website, a gravatar is useful on any WordPress site in the world, Disqus, GitHub and Stack Overflow, among others. Even slack uses gravatar.

The reverse is also true. If you’d rather be left alone, let the NAPUU be (Our Mascot that look nothing like you!) and no one will recognize you!

Money Bag
Thanks to the overwhelming response from all you awesome sponsors, WordCamp Nashik 2016 has almost covered it’s budget!
While we’ve already announced most of our sponsors, a couple will be announced as soon as we complete the formalities.

What happens to the surplus?
If we collect surplus amounts, it is sent to WordCamp Central and used to fund a WordCamp that maybe has difficulties attracting sponsors. It is also used to fund other community initiatives like meetups.

We still want to help sponsor WordCamps
You sure can! There are many things you can do:

  • Sponsor in kind: How about picking up a couple of bills directly? Or maybe just give some useful gifts to participants of WordCamp Nashik!
  • Sponsor the long haul: You could sponsor the local meetup group that organises this WordCamp so that they can help strengthen and evolve the community and do a better job next time!
  • Sponsor another WordCamp: Check the international WordCamp schedule and look for any upcoming WordCamps in India. Sponsor them! There’s one already there, 😉 😉
  • Now that we’re free from worrying about funds, we can completely focus on giving you the most awesome WordCamp experience ever! Make sure you don’t miss out.

See you at WordCamp Nashik 2016, happening on Sunday October 16th 2016 at NEC, Ambad, Nashik!
