This was my 2nd WordCamp and it was at Mumbai. This WordCamp was like medicine for me as I had some problems in my personal life.😉 I was back to work after 10 to 15 days and that weekend there was WC Mumbai. So it helped me a lot to get refresh.
Let’s start with the journey.
We have started our journey from OLA cab with Siddharth, Anto and Bharat (BNAP) for a Pune railway station. We booked a ticket for Mumbai and after 3 to 4 hours journey we reached at the venue. Mumbai was hot. I am talking about weather guyzzzz. 😉 But our venue was quite cool.
So after reaching at the venue, I told my name “Bhargav” at the registration table. And there were other Bhargavs too. So they asked my surname so I told my surname “Bhandari” to the person at the table. So he was searching my I card, but he got some other Bhargavs like whatever card he got, he read the name from that I-card “Bhargav Mehta” ….. He got some other bhargav’s I-card. During collecting my I-card, one girl beside me was smiling whenever that person called my name. I don’t know why? 😕
After collecting the stuff from the registration table I went inside the college and the atmosphere like woww !!!!… I saw our rtCamp table and went there and made a mark of the rtCamp logo on my hand and started exploring the WordCamp and met one interesting person. She was at just right beside our table. I forgot her name but she was nice. The way she was explaining the thing was damn good. And I must say she was the only interesting person I found on the first day.
Then after I attended a couple of sessions. The auditorium was huge and I liked it the most. My favorite sessions were like WP-CLI session and our boss Rahul Bansal’s “PHP in WordPress way”. I found that very interesting and I learned something from these two sessions only. At the first day, I saw my x-boss during lunch. So I went to meet him. We talked for a while and then I rushed to the queue for lunch as I was so hungry.
At the end of the day, I decided to go to my hometown. So I went to Mumbai Central and took the train for that. I decided not to spent a night in Mumbai. I wanted to go home and came again to the next morning.
At the next morning, before going to the WordCamp, I visited the Mount Merry church as I always wanted to visit that place. That was my first visit and I feel so good at there. I will definitely visit that church again. I shared some pics of the church on my Instagram profile. You can see those at here. After spending some time at the church, I went to the venue and at that day only I was waiting for Nirav Mehta’s session. And it was damn good, so inspiring. After that, I went for getting the WC Mumbai t-shirt and a mug. And I got that. 🙂
At the end of the WordCamp, a group photo session was there as always. You can see at the top of this blog. After that, I took an extra t-shirt for my friend, Amit. And he was happy to see that. So our train was from Mumbai at around 9 pm and we have 3 hrs. So I decided to go to Bandsatand with Siddharth and Naveen. We had a great time at there. Then we went to station for getting back to Pune. It was an adventurous journey. Why? That you will know in my next blog. 😛
One thing I always wanted to do was walk at the Marine Lines. I had a chance but I missed it as I went to my hometown for a night stay. So next time, I will definitely do this.
That’s me and Yahil ( left ), attending a session and having a selfie.

So that’s all. See you at the next bolg. 🙂
