WordPress Juniors – First Edition

In 2018 I had the privilege of being part of the WordCamp Harare Organising team, it was so much fun. Okay, maybe the planning process was a little bit stressful because we had a lot of firsts that particular WC but in the end, it was all worth it.

For the first time in Harare the lead organiser was female, my girl Tapiwanashe Manhombo WHOOP WHOOP (you should totally check out her website), talk about women empowerment!!!, secondly, we had our very first ever WordCamp Juniors Workshop and we also had our very own Contributor Day. It was an awesome experience.

For the Juniors workshop, we had kids between the age of 9 to 15 years. We had overall around 15 kids that attended. I was in charge of teaching the juniors how to start a WordPress blog, we ran into some problems on the day but l will get into that a little later.

At 8am the juniors where checking in, they had their own little custom t-shirt designed. Thank you at Hellenic Academy for blessing us with a cool computer room.
