    I tuned into the free live stream for WordCamp Europ 2015 to watch Matt’s Q and A session and it was great quality. Was awesome to watch the event live while being on the other side of the Atlantic.

    Awesome to see this is being organised so far in advance. This seems like the sign of a well-oiled organising machine.

    A pity we didn’t get Wordcamp Europe for Bratislava this time, but like the Olympics we’ll try again until we win. Vienna is just up the road. Vienna is a great city, both cuisine and outdoor activities. Don’t miss the Donauinsel if you come over. Bring your rollerblades or rent a bike.

    Oops, I just remembered Foliovision are now banned (after Silver and Gold sponsorships and well received presentations during the last three years 2013, 2014, 2015) from Wordcamp as we won’t make all of our paid code GPL, despite creating 95% publicly available GPL code in the last nine years of WordPress development.

    Thanks Automattic! Sneaky third party paid service plugins like Akismet, Vaultpress and Jetpack for the win. Real service-independent perpetual license plugins with no usage fees to the trash bin. A great win for publishers and independence everywhere!

      I think its enough that you poisoned whole one post with your comments about your trouble :)

        My intentions are entirely positive, Peter. Wordcamp Europe in Vienna is a fantastic idea. Vienna is truly a gorgeous and inherently intellectual city, full of coffee houses, wifi and ideas. Wordcamp Vienna 2016 may be the best Wordcamp ever.

        Foliovision was delighted to help get Wordcamp Slovakia off the ground in its first years. It’s just painful to be excluded over what should be our own affair (whether we make a small part of our commercial code GPL or not). Copycat coders are a real issue if you don’t have Automattic’s scale.

        I’m hoping that by winter we’ll have a resolution to this case so Foliovision can support both Wordcamp Europe and Wordcamp Slovakia 2016.

        I see many startups in WP what share much more than just code and they are successful and profitable. They share salaries, number of clients, earnings and much more without fear that some copyboy will take advantage of that.
        They don’t cry in comments, they share and do business in the same time and they do it well.

        Why allow non-fully GPL companies to sponsor Worldcamp if still enough fully GPL are here and they are happy about that? Until that you can sponsor kids, dogs or even I can give you my bank account :) Peter Cralen powered by Foliovision looks cool ;)

        Why stop there Peter? There are people who swap wives as well Peter. What you do behind closed doors is your affair.

        We share a lot of code (check our Github repository) Peter. But not all of it.

        Apparently we must become communists and exchangists to be able to continue to give our time and treasure to Wordcamp. Sorry, I don’t think that’s right.

    Vienna is good place for this … Bratislava, Budapest, even Prague not so far. Small countries, big hearts :)
