A few months ago, we asked you to send us postcards. For us it was a great way to get news from meetups and WordCamps from all over Europe. We always praise the ever-growing number of WordPress gatherings and we wanted to see the faces of these communities. It was great to get news from all of you while working on the massive event that is WordCamp Europe. We clearly hope that the WordCamp Europe will keep the spirit of these peopleーboth amateurs and professionalsーspending few hours together at night to share, learn and have fun around WordPress.

3,000 WordPress enthusiasts from all over the world will meet in Paris for WordCamp Europe this summer. We interviewed some active WordPress community members who will be joining us there.

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.
It was during the inaugural WordCamp Europe that I first met Rian. It was my first WordCamp ever, as for many others. I met Rian on Contributors Day in the accessibility track, which was also my first contact with how WordPress faces accessibility. Yes, I was aware of various accessibility issues and how people with disabilities use the web, but that was the point, that first Contributors day of mine, when I realised how important this work is.
WordCamp Europe is about a lot of great people meeting in Paris this summer. In our new WordPress People interview series we will introduce you to people who are active in the community and use WordPress every day.
Our first interview is with Bernhard Kau. Bernhard is a PHP developer living in Berlin, Germany. He is a passionate WordPress user, plugin developer and community member. He also organizes WordPress events, like the WordPress Meetup and WordCamp in Berlin.
Next June, WordCamp Europe will be held in Paris. Thousands of WordPress fans will gather to share and contribute to what is currently one of the biggest open source projects. As you may know, each edition of the WordCamp Europe is held in a different city. We think it is a great way to enlighten the European communities diversity. This year, we thought that it would be a good idea to bring out the host city more than we did the previous years so that attendees can take the most out of their travel.

WordPress is one of the most inclusive pieces of software today, and WordCamps — conferences about WordPress itself — are too. To make each WordCamp as inclusive as possible, and especially a WordCamp as big as WordCamp Europe, we really, really need your help. Albert Schweitzer, a German philosopher, born in the late 19th century once said – ”Wherever you turn, you can find someone who needs you. Even if it is a little thing, do something for which there is no pay but the privilege of doing it. Remember, you don’t live in the world all of your own.” And that is the real truth. We don’t live in a world alone. As individuals, we can do all so much; but if we work together, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
At WordCamp Europe, we need your help. We are building the biggest volunteer team ever, as we’re trying to accommodate 3000 people that will learn and contribute to WordPress during the three amazing days. You can apply to volunteer today, but if you are still thinking about it – read what our past WCEU volunteers told us about their experience during the event.
