WordCamp Switzerland 2023

It’s been quite a while since I published one of my WordCamp photo recap posts! I had to look it up: It was for WCEU 2018. Crazy, how time flies!

I had a great time meeting old friends and making new ones.

Well, without further ado, here’s my (short) photographic recap of WordCamp Switzerland 2023.

WordCamp in Athens

I bought a ticket for WordCamp Europe 2023 in Athens! After missing last year’s #wceu, I am looking forward to exploring a city I have never been to and meeting many of the people I haven’t seen since 2019!

WordCamp Europe 2022

Sadly I won’t be attending WordCamp Europe in Porto this year. It just didn’t work out shedule-wise. It is especially sad, because I attended all installments of WordCamp Europe so far – first as attendee, then volunteer, then organizer.

In an effort to do more with my photography I had the idea of creating a photo book with my favorite images I took at WordCamp Europe over the last couple of years.

The fifth WordCamp Europe took place in Paris last week. I am repeating myself each year, when I say how great it was!

I had the role of photography team lead this year, which meant that I somehow ended up shooting fewer images than in the years before. Nevertheless – here are my favorite photos (that I took) from WordCamp Europe 2017.

Last weekend I visited WordCamp Frankfurt. It was actually my first WordCamp in Germany. (I still think it is funny, that it took me that long to attend one here.)

I met many awesome new people – and got to hang out with ones I have know for years, now. In my opinion this is what makes WordCamps so special: It is almost like going to a big family reunion, where you hang out and catch up.
