Having earned the moderator level on WordPress.tv, Nirmal works as a Business Manager at Multidots. His passion lies in contributing to WordPress and in his words – he loves increasing the fan base of WordPress.

Nirmal will be marking his WordCamp speaking debut at WordCamp Udaipur and will speak on – How to contribute with WordPress.tv?

Key Points:

WordPress.tv published 26% more talks this year than the previous year, and now there is an official WordPress channel on YouTube, so more and more videos will begin to be available wherever people want to watch them.

In words of Nirmal – “In India and around Asia, we have very few contributors. As we know that, WordPress.tv is the only platform to publish the official WordPress videos. As moderator at WordPress.tv from India, I feel that if we have more and more contributors from India then we can have more larger community of WordPress.tv too”.

Topic will cover broadly the following:

What is WordPress.tv?
How to contribute with WordPress.tv? ( Steps and Procedures)
What are the tools, you can utilise while doing WordCamp Videos editing?
What are the things need to be taken care while editing any WordCamp videos?
How to submit videos to WordPress.tv?
What are the standard to approve videos on WordPress.tv?
