WordCamp Europe 2019 kicks off tomorrow, June 20, with Contributor Day. If you have been following the event on Twitter, hundreds of WordPress enthusiasts and professionals have been descending upon Berlin this week in preparation for the world’s largest WordCamp. For those who cannot attend in person, WCEU will be live streaming the main conference on June 21-22 for free.
Unlike previous years, no tickets or registration will be required for live stream viewers. Removing this logistical hurdle makes the conference more accessible to viewers who may want to pop in for a session or two.
Matt Mullenweg will be giving an address at 2PM in Berlin on Friday, June 21, and his presentation usually includes some newsworthy announcements. Whether you’re interested in Gutenberg development, community relations, design, or business, there’s a session for a wide range of WordPress users. Those who are viewing from afar can check out the schedule and plan which sessions to watch online.
As it was last year, the WCEU website is a Progressive Web App (PWA) that allows users to favorite the talks they want to attend. Presentations last 30 minutes with 10 minutes added at the end for Q&A. There are 20 minutes scheduled in between sessions to allow attendees to change tracks or have conversations in the hallway.
WordCamp Europe plans to announce the live stream link on its Twitter account. Follow the #WCEU hashtag to join in the conversation online.
