I could (a lot of verbs here).
Two weeks ago, I had an amazing chance to join a warm and friendly WordPress community at WordCamp Kathmandu 2018.
My talk was about the benefits and considerations when having a multilingual WordPress site. The organizers gave me 25 minutes, which was pretty short, I expected to have at least 10 minutes more. I could not talk something at the end of my talk, you can jump here to see the rest.
