First photos from #WCEU

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.

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!
