Thoughts on WordPress Sheffield Hack Day 2015

So over the weekend just gone I attended the WP Sheffield hack day, which was the first time I’d been to that event. It’s just that little bit far for me to attend on a school night, but I was more than happy to go to an event over the weekend, as I have a little bit more…
