Last weekend I was fortunate enough to attend and give a talk at WordCamp Split. WordPress in Croatia is unique, with WordPress meetups in four or five cities across Croatia, WordPress community can enjoy different Croatian city every year. The city of Split was the host this year.
On politics and our journey to Split
It will be awesome if there are no politicians, like, from this point on. I think this weekend are the elections in Croatia, and politicians are firing and backfiring on the Croatia – Serbia line. In the last a couple of months you could hear a lot of crap coming from the politicians on both sides, but, as I said and gonna repeat: “War ended 21 years ago, get the fuck over it!”.
Everyone was super welcoming and polite, and that is what I was expecting before our journey there. Driving to Split, leaving my car in the parking lot and not worrying about it is something that I got used. I felt safe in Croatia. I felt safe in Split. Same goes for everyone from Serbia that was attending.
Back to WordCamp Split
People in these part of the World are really into the community and being a part of something this great is a big plus for them. You can see that on their faces.
I gave a talk on how easy it is to join Theme Review Team and what are the benefits of contributing back to WordPress.
Here is the link to the slides: http://slides.com/lanche86/wchr2016/
- Contributing costs, but, you will learn a lot
- Every contribution counts
- Start with: make.wordpress.org/themes
- Theme Review Team could use your help
- Weekly TRT meetings are a great way to get involved

Once the video goes public, I will update the post and insert the link, but, in the meantime, check out these tweets:
