WPTavern: WordCamp Tokyo 2018: Highlights, Recaps, Aftermovie, and More

WordCamp Tokyo 2018 was held two weeks ago on September 14-15 and recordings of the sessions should be published to WordPress.tv soon. The theme of the WordCamp was “Challenge!”, a celebration of the challenges the WordPress project has overcome over the past 15 years, as well as a rallying call for embracing the challenges introduced by the new Gutenberg editor.

WordCamp Tokyo is one of the largest camps in Asia, hosted by one of the most active international communities. The first edition of the camp was held in 2008 with 60 attendees. It was also the very first WordCamp in Japan. Since that time the WordPress community has exploded in the region, spawning dozens of local meetups and WordCamps around the country.

The official WordCamp Tokyo 2018 website has a growing list of more than 40 recaps and articles written about the event. Overall, attendees enjoyed the opportunity to connect and contribute back to WordPress. The after party was held at a disco-like club in Shibuya and you can listen to a selection of the songs that the DJ posted to his WordPress blog.

If you are one of the many people across the globe who love the Japanese WordPress community and wished you could have attended the WordCamp, this aftermovie offers a glimpse of a few of the contributors, sponsors, organizers, and attendees who made the event a success. It captures a bit of the energy in the air and may inspire you to put WordCamp Tokyo on your calendar next year.
