#WCThess2018 – my PoV

I am always late, but I can confirm this is an asset and not a disadvantage. It’s been a long while since December 2018, however I realise that memories come up whenever they wish…

Team of students that without any prior knowledge of WordPress, created their website for the initiative they manage

We met amazing people, discussed interesting topics, got inspiration and let teams and individuals set an example. Sponsors, attendees and speakers had the opportunity of networking and discussing and enjoyed a trip on the Internet and WordPress world.

And how do you react when a few days before the event you realise one of your speakers cannot attend due to late visa appointment?

Let’s have a Gutenberg panel conversation!

That’s the spirit of WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018! Felow WordPressers of the world, become always close friends.

You will find all photos of the event at the WordPress Greek Community’s flickr account in order to get a glimpse of the unique times of the first WordCamp Thessaloniki.

And all presentations of the event can be found in .pdf form at the WordPress Greek Community’s Speakerdeck account, in order to have notes of the things you heard or of the things you did not have the chance to listen to.

At the same time, you will find the videos of the presentations on WordPressTV and even more at the official YouTube account of WordPress Greek Community.

Infographic recap of all you need to know!
History

WordPress in the era of economic crisis in Greece, rises up with new companies, freelancers etc. choosing it to become their work tool. WordPress Greek Community writes its own history getting bigger and stronger.

Since 2007, we are making steps of progress. We are always in need of new people, adding value to the organising teams. It has been a great pleasure in Thessaloniki, that new local meetup ideas were born. And guess what… they started taking steps to getting established.

Then, we realised that the community can support two WordCamps per year. The decision for hosting a WordCamp Athens in spring and WordCamp Thessaloniki in winter is a fact. So we ask for your help.

WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018 was a blast and you can enjoy the video Nikolaos Magkoutas prepared with beautiful moments of the event

WordCamp Athens 2019 takes place at Athens Concert Hall in 17-18 May 2019 and tickets are still available, while WordCamp Thessaloniki 2019 is in early planning stages.

Come forward, volunteer, contribute.

Support WordPress and the WordPress Community.
