We are doing things a little different this year, as we are announcing an official call for photographers.

In the previous years we recruited photographers from the volunteers pool. This year we decided to up the game and make a separate application available for photographers who want to document what will be the largest WordPress conference to date. Continue reading Call for Photographers

Final batch of tickets now on sale

It may have slipped by unnoticed, but last week we started selling the very final batch of tickets.

At the end of the last WordCamp Europe in Vienna, when we announced Paris as the next host city, we released the first batch of 2000 tickets. That first batch sold out at the end of January 2017 and we decided to release the second batch immediately after, along with 300 microsponsor tickets.

With over 2200 tickets already sold or reserved (for our sponsors, speakers, and volunteers), WordCamp Europe 2017 will be the biggest WordCamp to date.

Keep in mind that there won’t be any more tickets after this release, except reserved tickets that won’t get collected. Continue reading Final batch of tickets now on sale

What have past #WCEU volunteers learned from their experience

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.

As with every WordCamp, WordCamp Europe needs volunteers. Lots of volunteers to be precise. Last year we had a giant volunteer team of 160 people, and this year we will need even more of you.

Being a volunteer is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. It gives you the opportunity to meet and speak with attendees from all over the world, help out with speakers and much more. And volunteering is important because without you, the volunteers, WordCamp Europe couldn’t be as accessible as it is. As with WordPress who democratized publishing, allowing everyone to publish within minutes, WordCamps are the way we meet people and learn new things. So… Continue reading WordCamp Europe 2017 – Call for volunteers is now open #wceu

Devenir un des volontaires du WordCamp Europe 2017 — Photo de Vladimir Kaladan Petkov

Comme pour tous les WordCamps, le WordCamp Europe a besoin de volontaires. Beaucoup de volontaires en fait. L’année dernière, nous avions une équipe formidable de 160 personnes et cette année nous avons encore plus besoin de vous !

Devenir volontaire est un accomplissement et une expérience enrichissante. Cela vous donne l’opportunité de rencontrer et de parler avec des participants originaires du monde entier, d’obtenir de l’aide grâce à des conférences de qualité et bien plus encore.

Mais être bénévole est aussi important car sans vous, les volontaires, le WordCamp Europe ne serait pas aussi accessible qu’il l’est. Tout comme WordPress a démocratisé la publication, permettant à chacun de publier en quelques minutes, les WordCamps sont le chemin pour faire se rencontrer les gens et apprendre toujours plus.
