Speaking at WordCamp Auckland 2014

Last week I flew over to New Zealand to speak at WordCamp Auckland 2014 – an event I’d been keeping my eye on for a little while.

The Auckland WordCamp was put on by the same people who run the WordPress meet up over there. I was told early on in the piece, that the group was built up of a lot more power users / users / newcomers compared to say Sydney and Melbourne where there is probably a closer ratio of WordPress developers compared to WordPress users.

It’s a pretty big trip to make to present a 30 minute talk, but I really do like Auckland – it’s one of my favourite cities, so I had no issues in making the trip across the Tasman. … 

Dinner at Euro

It’s no secret, I’m a fan of nice food. Just over a year ago I was introduced to Euro restaurant in Auckland, and it’s become one of my favourites.

Euro do a kick-ass job in my opinion (albeit very limited) because they build their dishes with only the bare required ingredients, but they use the absolute best from all over the world. The core ingredients do the work for you, you don’t need to make it more complicated than it has to be. (Can you tell, I am so not a ‘foodie’)
