Community participation


WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.

I was one of the organizers of WordCamp São Paulo 20132014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.


It’s a bunch of regional meetings made to satisfy the lack between the WordCamp editions, made annually.

I’m an organizer and moderator of meetups  at São Paulo.

I also helped as a moderator until the end of 2019 on some groups in Facebook e Google+:
