The biggest WordPress related conference in Europe has opened up tickets. I kinda expect to see you all there. Who can I count on? 🙂 ∞
Sooo, what are your autumnal plans for 2013? They should probably include WordCamp Europe, which has just announced the dates for the event.
After months of searching for the perfect venue, we’re really excited to announce that the very first WordCamp Europe will take place on 5th – 7th October in Leiden, The Netherlands!
All the information is now on WordCamp Europe’s official site.
Yes, you read it here first: WordCamp Europe in 2013. Our mailing list is ready and you can sign up to get updates.
The idea for WordCamp Europe developed slowly. Come to think of it, it was in much in the same way WP Realm itself was born. We kept running into each other at various WordCamps in Europe; the conversation went on, each city a different chapter.
It mostly did not feel like a different country at all. It didn’t feel like any particular country, actually. It just felt like, well… Europe. The fact that we could just as well be having the conversation over liquid nitrogen desserts in Amsterdam, tapas in Sevilla or drinks in Lisbon has had no impact on a fundamental, unspoken principle, which is this: all those places are home.
Given the nature and history of Europe, all of us easily and often cross national borders and languages to meet each other. This is why so many WordPress enthusiasts from Europe, regardless of their specific country of origin, attend and speak at so many WordCamps in other European countries, probably more so than anywhere else in the world.
