WordCamp Europe 2016, was a blast, we can all agree on that! The whole organizing team and everyone involved put a lot into making it happen and now, from this point of view, I can say THIS WAS A GREAT WORDCAMP!
They say it’s not over until you blog about, so I listen :)
For all of you, who shared last a couple of months with me, you know what I have been through; these last three – four months has been a quite a horror, it all started with a knee surgery, followed by breaking down the engagement, but, thanks to organizing and fully focusing on both WordCamp Belgrade and WordCamp Europe everything’s fine now :)
WordCamp Europe, August 2015
I could start this paragraph saying “One chat that changed it all” :) So I remember like it was yesterday, I got a Slack notification on w.org and was from Petya. I replied just with: “AAAAAAAAAAAA” once I found out about me being accepted into the #WCEU organizing team.
Joy, stress, happiness, sorrow
So, organizing the event this size was a great experience, and I would do it all over again if I could. Incredible journey. Since I was the part of the remote team, in charge of volunteers and Contributor day this was an entirely new experience for me. I never did anything even close to this size event. Alongside with Peter, I organized roles for about 160 volunteers; and with Rocio and Alex Kirk, we pulled off organization for 450 contributors.
After it was officially over, this tweet sums it pretty much:
Both happy and sad that #WCEU ended. Thank you so much on making these awesome memories <3 See you all in Paris next year!
