  1. WordCamp Sofia has an extremely good reputation for being one of the best WordCamp’s around, so having WordCamp Europe there makes complete sense.

  2. I thought the “standard” was WordCamp .
    Isn’t there WordCamp UK?

    So…I can run WordCamp North America? WordCamp Canada?

    How does WordCamp Europe handle the 40+ languages?

    If there is a “standard” language, what about people who don’t speak that language at all but want to attend?

    WordCamp would solve that issue.

    What about Croatians who only speak Croatian and no other language? WordCamp Zagreb/Splt/Dubrovnik/Rijeka/etc…would solve that issue.

    WordCamp Europe, just the term…sort of takes that local element away,

    1. Miroslav, the local-vs-europe debate was already present in 2013, the assumption being that WordCamp “Europe” was a different kind of WordCamp, with the WP Foundation’s blessing.

      The language for WordCamp Europe is English, as that is the most common denominator.

      There is absolutely no intention to cannibalize local WordCamps; in fact, WordCamp Europe 2013′s success, by anyone’s measure, has probably created many more potential WordCamp organisers, not to mention the incredible growth in activity throughout WordPress communities in Europe.

      In that spirit, the term does not take the “local” away, really, it amplifies it.

      Are you in touch with the Croatian community? Are they up for organising a local WordCamp? Would you help? We can help, too.
