WordCamp Mumbai 2016

March 14th, 2016

As a multinational software development agency with substantial WordPress expertise, we believe that we ought to maintain an active role in the WordPress community—that’s why we do our best to send members of Codal’s offshore teams to WordPress conferences around the world.

Last week, we sent three senior WordPress developers from Codal‘s Ahmedabad office to WordCamp Mumbai in the hopes that they would bring back new and innovative strategies for WP development.

Our developers met with some of the best and brightest WP developers in India, and they had a lot to say about the experience.

“WordCamp Mumbai was a wealth of information and we’re excited to bring back what we learned to our newest projects.”- Hardik Deliwala
