In the other half of my life, where I am a
web designer, WordPress plays a major role in my daily work. About 90 % of the websites I build, run on WordPress.
It was therefor only logical to visit the first ever
WordCamp Europe. Two days of great talks, learning and meeting people, plus one day of working together on WordPress itself: Everybody had a really great time. The organization was flawless. Huge thanks to everyone, who made #wceu happen!
I will definitely attend again next year, wherever WordCamp Europe 2014 will be held.
Enjoy the pictures!
