WPWeekly Episode 278 – Recap of WordCamp Europe 2017

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Coach Birgit Olzem, Carole Olinger, Jaki Levy, and Dwayne McDaniel who attended WordCamp Europe in Paris, France.

We discuss contributor day and the effects of having it at the beginning of a WordCamp instead of at the end. Each individual shared their experience attending the event and described what their favorite session was.

Lunch was provided at WordCamp Europe in paper bags with plastic utensils. With 1,900 attendees, this resulted in a lot of trash. We discussed the impact WordCamps can have on the environment and why larger WordPress events should act as a role model for being as sustainable as possible.

We also talked about Gutenberg, the WordPress marketing team’s efforts, and the differences between WordCamp US and EU.
