Thanks for asking this question. My Best WordPress memories are connecting with the community and interviewing more than 30 WordPress influencers. Looking forward to multiply the figure in 2015. Cheers!

In 2014, I personally had some amazing experiences:

- Speaking for the first time at a WordCamp
- Helping to organize a WordCamp for the first time
- Attending WCSF for the first time
- Co-starting a new WP podcast and recording over 35 episodes

A few friends and acquaintances also had exciting years:

- Sam Hotchkiss' BruteProtect plugin was acquired by Automattic
- Brian Richards dedicated himself full time to WP Sessions
- Chris Lema became a full time member of the WP community
- John James Jacoby raised enough money to dedicate himself full time to BuddyPress, bbPress and GlotPress

Man those are just a couple of many cool things that happened this year. In 2015 I hope to:
- Speak more
- Blog more
- Help others more
- Contribute more
- Launch our first premium plugins

Thanks for asking!

Some amazing achievements there Syed and Kyle. Mine would have to be WordCamp SF and the unusual positive energy felt through the halls of the event venue. Waking up to Matt and laying a ton of critique on him which he handled gracefully. Good stuff.


For the first time attending a WordCamp - WCEU Sofia 2014 - which was an awesome experience, meeting many great people, hearing interesting lectures and taking a lot of motivation back home. Thanks for this nice question!

Wordpress 4.0 is good and enough for me right now.
