As well as the incredible talks, live demonstrations, networking opportunities and social events, one of the best things about attending WordCamps is getting to meet up with online friends, IRL.

Being as close-knit it is, the Divi community has sparked a plethora of lifelong friendships between people that would’ve normally never met. Over the years, after communicating through support groups, Facebook threads and Slack channels, members of the global Divi community have met face-to-face, and continue to do so, mainly at WordCamps around the country.

This year, Aspen Grove Studios founders David Blackmon and Cory Jenkins, had the pleasure of spending the weekend with a number of their closest friends and peer Divi lovers, including:

  • Tim Strifler of Divi Life
  • Adam Inlay of Adam Inlay Web Design (an Addy!)
  • Jerry Simmons of Fervent Solutions
  • Terry Hale of Mizagorn Inc.
  • Tammy Grant of Sunflower Creatives
  • Leslie Bernal of A Girl and Her Mac
  • Jill Sessa of Ultimate WP Help
  • Donna Sicard of Aspen Grove Studios

The group was also joined by Elegant Themes founder, Nick Roach, and members of the Elegant Themes team, Nathan B. Weller and Kenny Singh. As well as attending plenty of talks together, the Divi community along with the core members of Elegant Themes all sat down and discussed the future of Divi.
