We did it, again. We, a bunch of volunteers, organised a second WordCamp in Belgium.
195 WordPress’ers attended the day, filled with talks about WordPress and the wider web. On Friday we also had a contributor day, where we (50-60 of the attendees) worked on WordPress project itself.
Big thanks to Dave Loodts (lead organiser) and all of the organisers, volunteers, speakers, sponsors and attendees to make it happen.
Don’t know what a WordCamp is?
“WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 75 million sites on the web.” — https://central.wordcamp.org/about/
All WordCamps are non profit events, run by volunteers (yep, nobody gets paid anything). Just to create a moment and place to meet others working with or on WordPress (any level, any expertise) and share knowledge. Open Source means the code is freely available, so knowledge sharing is a no brainer in the WordPress community. Everyone is welcome to learn, share, discuss.
