Most of us from the WordCamp Europe 2018 organising team were sitting in the organisers’ room. It was Saturday, June 16th, at around 5:30 PM and the conference we organised for the past ten months ended just a few minutes ago. During closing remarks, Jenny Beaumont, Milan Ivanović and Bernhard Kau announced Berlin as the 2019 WCEU host city. Continue reading “Three years of WordCamp Europe”
It was a really busy week for me. After talking at WordCamp Kyiv and then visiting Chernobyl, the very next day I traveled to Belfast to attend and talk at another “first ever WordCamp”. Northern Ireland welcomed me very well, and WordCamp Belfast was a blast.
I like to travel, visit new places and meet new, interesting people. WordCamp Kyiv was my 6th WordCamp this year, and the 4th I’ve been speaking at. Since I try to have at least 2 different talks each year, I applied to Kyiv with two talks, and a new one about accessibility got accepted. While really looking forward to meet new people I didn’t know what can I expect from Ukraine. But the thing is – Ukraine is amazing.

I know these people for quite some time now and I know the amount of work they put into organizing events and eventually – annual WordCamp. WordCamp Belgrade 2016 is the second WordCamp in Belgrade and this year it was even bigger with more attendees and more talks in two tracks. Last year I was only attending but this year I prepared a talk.
So, WordCamp London 2016 finished yesterday and it was a blast – like WordCamps usually are. An amazing organizing team and volunteers, valuable sponsors and finally – inspired audience, for three days of talks and contributing. Every talk I went was really good and I’m sorry I missed couple of them that were overlapping or I simply couldn’t make it. Continue reading “WordCamp London 2016 Recap”
This article was first published on Netokracija (leading south–european technology blog) in Croatian, but decided to publish it here as well, since I believe these are unique reasons for applying to speak at WCEU.
