My favourite talk at WordCamp Cape Town 2015 was Bruce Lunnis‘. He shared some of the stories of the do_action-hackathons in Cape Town. On those events, WordPress professionals gather to make websites, set up eCommerce and design branding for NGOs from the Cape Town region. Bruce highlighted a few of the success stories of how this one day of serving the Cape Town community has helped these NGOs to raise awareness, donations, social traction and interesting partnerships.
He concludes by encouraging people in the tech industry to, first of all, realise what great influence they can have in changing a country, and second, to actually get involved and start supporting the dozens of NGOs in our community.
