Announcing Speakers

Introducing our next speaker for WordCamp Mumbai 2017 – Vishal Kothari.

Vishal KothariFor a Developer, you can ask them to write 1000 lines of code, they will do it instantly. You ask them to write a one-pager on their accomplishments or their journey, they will take an eternity to write that. Ask a Developer about WordPress & they will tell you 100 things unique which they have done with it. Ask them to write down 10 of those things, and they will try to hide from you from that day.

If Development is your strength, then Marketing & Content Writing can only magnify that strength. For anyone, it’s important to open new avenues & that’s where Developers lack behind.

Meet Wambhau – The Dabbawala who will deliver WordPress goodness

The Mumbai dabbawalla is a popular sight in the city. They are a delivery service and carry lunch boxes to and fro to several thousands of offices everyday. They predominantly use their popular Hercules cycles or the local train system to transport lunch boxes.

This tradition goes back right upto the 1890s – about a 120 years ago. The Dabbawala system is often cited as near perfect and they are frequently known to make less than one mistake in over 8 million deliveries.

They have been studies by research scholars and management institutes, trying to decode how a group of non-MBA, mostly school dropouts and without any formal training – manage to run such an efficient system.

So when it came to designing a Waapu for WordCamp Mumbai – the working class heroes called dabbawalas  were obviously a popular idea.

Meet Wambhau

The Wapuu for WordCamp Mumbai is designed after the popular ‘dabbawala’ and we hope it delivers great WordPress goodness to all attending the WordCamp. It’s name is “Wambhau”

The name means Wapuu + Mumbai + bhau  (meaning brother in the local Marathi language and a popular way for addressing dabbawalas)



Special thanks to Ganesh Kerkar who designed the Wambhau. Also loads of thanks to Shwetambari Shinde, who gave us the idea and inputs around creating ‘Wambhau’

This Way or That – lessons learnt optimizing WordPress for customer success by Tarun

Announcing Speakers

Introducing our next speaker for WordCamp Mumbai 2017 – Tarun Parswani.

Tarun ParswaniWordPress is awesome – and plugins make it even better.

But when you have to build and manage plugins with more than 100,000 active installs, you hit roadblocks.

In this talk Tarun will share his experiences in situations like:

  • How a timeout error turned out to be a big loophole in the plugin?
  • How we had to break best-practices to tackle CPU intensive database queries?
  • How we brought pages that took 3 minutes to load – down to under 20 seconds?
  • How shared hosting environments forced us to rewrite our plugin?

The talk is focused around database optimization, WooCommerce and performance. It’s based on real-life problems we faced in our Smart Manager, Smart Coupons, Smart Reporter, Icegram and other plugins. It’s a technical talk, but the lessons are useful in designing any high-performance solution around WordPress.

Tarun is a senior developer with StoreApps, responsible for Smart Manager, Smart Reporter and other plugins. He is a data nerd and loves playing with SQL – and No-SQL!

He has solved some of the most challenging optimization problems for StoreApps customers. He surely has quite a few tricks building high performance WordPress plugins up his sleeve!
