This summer 3000 WordPress people will meet in beautiful vibrant Paris for WordCamp Europe. We would like to introduce a few interesting attendees who work with WordPress and are active in the community.
Our second interview is with David de Boer, entrepreneur, developer and frequent WordCamp speaker from the Netherlands.
If we would ask our attendees about the one thing they are all looking forward (besides the talks, of course) most of them would say – the after party. And each year the WordCamp Europe afterparty is the glue that sticks people from all over the world together. They talk, they dance, and they exchange ideas that one day could help build something extraordinary. To make the afterparty an unforgettable experience for everyone, we decided to host it in the Pavillon d’Armenonville, or as they call it “a green haven in Paris”. Continue reading Get the #WCEU Afterparty started
We’re working to build on the success of last year’s WCEU!
- A whopping 2,199 tickets were sold.
- 1,952 people attended, making it the biggest WordCamp to date!
- We had 69 speakers covering topics on development, content marketing, design, community and more.
- 39 sponsors were involved.
- We had attendees from 68 different countries, making it our most international and culturally diverse WordCamp so far.
- 85% of attendees loved the WordCamp ball.
- 94% of last year’s attendees said they would come back (we can’t wait to see you all!).
If you’re in possession of a WordCamp Europe ticket (good for you!) you’re probably going to need to plan your trip to Paris soon. Our local team has gone above and beyond this year to help you out.
WordPress is like a galaxy of evolving open source projects maintained by thousands of volunteers from across the world. Continue reading Welcome to the #WCEU 2017 Contributors’ day
