Do you miss #WCEU already?

We are lucky enough to have some amazing photographers that documented WCEU for us this year. Over the next week, we are going to collect all those pictures in our Flickr account and also link their posts for you. Until then, we’re posting a first batch fresh out of the lens for you all.

Live Streaming | Watch the WordCamp Europe sessions online

Wanted to come to Vienna, but something happened? 

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered – you can see almost everything that will be happening this year in Vienna. We’ll stream live all three tracks, on both days. With so many great speakers the real problem for you will be to decide what you want to watch, so take a look at the schedule.

If you haven’t yet grabbed your free live stream ticket there is still some time to do so. Don’t say we didn’t warn you about it 🙂

On Friday and Saturday, all you need to do is to sit down on your favorite couch (or armchair, caffe bar, bus seat, …) and enjoy the talks. Here are the links for each of the tracks live stream:

If you have any trouble viewing the stream, please try using a different computer and Internet connection, because almost all the problems might be related to those factors.

Have fun watching WordCamp Europe!

Arriving early to Vienna? Join other awesome people at one of our volunteer organised warm up events!

WordCamp Europe has always been about getting people together more than anything else. With the conference growing, it’s not that easy to make connections during the conference day, as we also have an amazing lineup of speakers coming to share their knowledge. Even with our networking activities like tribe meetups and speed networking planned, fitting everything in two days can be a bit too tight.

The #WCEUBall is designed for you to have fun or chill and relax after two days of learning, but one party is hardly enough.

Enter the #WCEU warm up events

As we know a lot of you are coming to Vienna early to explore the city and to meet friends before WordCamp Europe, we thought the days before the conference would be a great chance to meet some new people as well! A lot of you are organising informal gatherings and fun things to do, so we decided to try and centralise the information for all of them so if you’re in Vienna on Wednesday and Thursday, you can think of something fun to do and also make new friends!
