Everything you need to know about #WCEU Contributor Day

Make sure to register for WordCamp Europe Contributor Day, and enjoy talks and workshops by leading industry experts. Or, if you feel like it – contribute to one of the teams.

We are less than a month away from WordCamp Europe Contributor Day. We hope you have already bought your ticket to WordCamp Europe and registered to attend Contributor Day (around 50 spots left as of today!). As promised, we are releasing the schedule of all the talks (four of them), workshops (13 of them), and all of the contributor teams.

What you need to know – step by step

For the first time this year, Contributor Day will take place before the conference days, on Thursday, June 15th, 2017. It will happen in the Business Centre of “Les Docks de Paris”, starting with registration at 08:30 am, and opening remarks at 09:15.

Dock Pullman is where Contributor Day registration will happen, starting at 8:30AM on June 15th

Registration will take place at Dock Pullman. After you register you can proceed to the Business Centre, where the Contributor Day will take place.

After you’re done with Contributor Day registration, you can walk to Business centre which is around 100 metres down the road

Those of you who have been to other contributor days already know how it goes – there are teams that you join to work on a particular part of WordPress or its community, and then there are (sometimes) workshops and talks. For WordCamp Europe Contributor day we have planned both. Thanks to our amazing speakers and contributors, we will have contributor teams as well as talks and workshops.

  1. I would like to register for the contrib. day, 4 days ago there were 50 spots left. Now it says survey closed without further informations.
    Is it still possible to participate ? 🙂

  2. How can I be sure I’m registered ?
    I registerd in march and I didn’t received any confirmation.

    1. Hey Nicolas, if you finished the registration successfully – you are registered. But you should have received our email that we sent to our who registered, almost two weeks ago. Can you check your spam folder, and if not – can you get in touch and we’ll look into it?

  3. Hello,
    j’ai acheté un ticket en juillet 2016 pour (40 euros) – mais je n’ai pas compris si je peux assister au contributor’s day avec ce ticket. Vous pouvez me dire ?
