Things you should know if you are travelling for WordCamp Nagpur

Hey all,
We are excited to host WordCamp in the city for the first time. This Post is for people travelling to Nagpur for WordCamp. Outlined as follows:

About Nagpur City

Welcome to Nagpur – “second capital” of Maharashtra state, means some administrative functions are carried out here, and winter sessions of the Legislative Assembly in a year occur here.
History
Human settlements around Nagpur can be traced back 3000 years to the 8th century BC. Indian epics mention the city as being home to the Nagas – a class of entity that take the form of great King Cobra. The name Nagpur has its origin in Nagapuram (city of the Nagas). In fact, earlier names of the city, Fanindrapur, derived from the word ‘fana’ that means hood of a cobra.

The city was founded in 1703 by the Gonds King Bakht Buland Shah of Deogarh and later became a part of the Maratha Empire under the Bhosale dynasty. The British East India Company took over Nagpur in the 19th century and made it the capital of the Central Provinces and Berar.

After Indian Independence in 1947, Central Provinces and Berar became a province of India and in 1950 became the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, again with Nagpur as its capital. When the Indian states were reorganised along the linguistic lines in 1956, Nagpur and Berar regions were transferred to Bombay state, which in 1960 was split between the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat. The city lost its status as the capital. Following the informal “Nagpur Pact” between political leaders, it was made the second capital of Maharashtra.

Nagpur completed 300 years of establishment in the year 2002.

Enough of History, nowadays Nagpur is also known as “Orange City” as it is famous for the oranges. The city is the major trade centre of Oranges cultivated in the region.

Nagpur is home to ice-cream manufacturer Dinshaws, Indian dry food manufacturer Haldiram’s international and Ayurvedic products company Vicco and Baidyanath.

About WordPress Community in Nagpur

Origin Story

On 11th July 2009, Nagpur had it first PHP meetup, around 31 people turned up with a variety of background.

First PHP Meetup in Nagpur

Further down the line group continued to cover various topics and activities. Topics like Various PHP Frameworks, various content management systems, Facebook Applications using PHP, Drupal 7 Release Party, WordPress Anniversary party, Git flow, Plugin development, Modules/Components developments and more.

The PHP meetups have been a great boon for the PHP community in Nagpur & has provided a great platform for PHP beginners, enthusiasts & developers to share their knowledge.

Why We forked WordPress User Group From PHP User Group

After attending First WordCamp of life, Abhishek (as an attendee) and Rohit (as a Speaker) at WordCamp Baroda 2013 realised WordPress community is not developers only community, it’s more about users. Further attending WordCamps Pune 2013, Baroda 2014, Mumbai 2014, It took us two years to understand how WordPress community works.

Current Status of WordPress Community in Nagpur

WordPress Community Nagpur has two groups, One on Facebook and one from WordPress Foundation on Meetup.com. There are 332 WPers in the Facebook group and 162 on Meetup group. Facebook group is used for discussions and helping each other, whereas Meetup group for scheduling meetup.

To make sure people could join, contribute and learn, we try to conduct two meetups every Month, Mid-month meetup for hands-on and learning and Month-end Meetup are mostly discussions over coffee.
