WordCamp Europe 2016 — held in Vienna’s beautiful MuseumsQuartier — was wonderfully executed, and a highlight of the year in WordPress conferences. Organized by a huge team of dedicated volunteers, many of whom worked near full time in the weeks leading up to the events, pulled off the largest WordCamp ever.

Nearly 2,000 attendees streamed into Vienna for WordCamp Europe, and over the course of two conference days and a contributor day, showed just how diverse and special the WordPress community is.

There were many great talks, and I unfortunately didn’t get to see near enough of them, but fortunately the team got videos onto WordPress.tv incredibly fast, and you can now watch all WordCamp Europe sessions for yourself.

I had the privilege to take part in the conference in two sessions, first as a moderator of a panel of business owners, on the topic of cultivating happy teams. I also greatly enjoyed interviewing Matt Mullenweg for the event keynote.

I really recommend you check out all of the talks and choose those which you may learn from. I have pictures from some of those I attended, as well as from the event in general and contributor day.

I’ll have more takeaways from WordCamp Europe in the member newsletter, but for now, I hope you enjoy a few pictures! Thank you to the WordCamp Europe organizing team and volunteers for your efforts, and the entire European community for welcoming those of us who traveled from abroad. It was a blast, and I hope to see you again next year in Paris!
