Google AMP Roadshow Mumbai 2018 โšก

Six rtCampers attendedย the AMP Roadshow Mumbai 2018. Pradeep, our VP of Engineering, was a guest speaker. He demonstrated the use of AMP for WordPress plugin.

Notably, he spoke about how AMP can be used to run the entire networkย of WordPress sites all over, including desktops. You can head over to directly to see how the whole site looks like, with AMP implementation.

Pradeepโ€™s speaker slides are here and we are here to answer any of your AMP related questions. โ˜Ž๏ธ๐Ÿ“ซ

Unrelated to the event above, Sagar from our team contributed to the main AMP project.

EasyEngine RC1 ๐Ÿš€

This would be the most exciting update for EasyEngine users.

We released the first RC version last week. The best part is thatย we are already using it on and on most of our production sites, at this moment.

We hope to give you the final version by mid-November.ย ๐Ÿคž

If you can help us with testing or documentation, it would be really helpful. ๐Ÿ™

Traditional Dayย ๐Ÿ‘˜

We ended October by celebrating the Traditional Day at rtCamp. Traditional Day has nothing to do with Halloween, so donโ€™t get confused if you don’t find our costumes to be spooky enough! ๐Ÿ‘ป

As there is no emoji for Indian traditional attire, I borrowed Kimono emoji from our Japanese friends. ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‘˜

Thatโ€™s all for the month of October!ย ๐Ÿป

Wish you all a very happy and safe Diwali, from all rtCampers! ๐ŸŽ†
