Wordcamp Dublin 2017

Hi all, last year I arrived in Dublin and had a chance to participate on three Wordcamps in Europe. London, Vienna, and Belfast. The last one I did a presentation, was crazy because I replace a speaker 12 hours before the presentation. But in the end was nice the support that the community gives me, and I did my first presentation in Europe.

And this year I was selected to do a presentation on WordCamp Dublin 2017 will be my first WordCamp this year, Dublin is special because is a huge IT polo and Europe and a WordCamp here has a special meaning.  The event happens during two days  14 and 15 of October, two days talking about: Theme development, Boilerplating, Accelerated Mobile Pages, Content, SEO, Workflow, and E-commerce. You can check the schedule here:

WordCamp Europe Second day recap

The second day of WordCamp Europe I saw some familiar faces that I saw the last day, for example, Kat a Woocommerce employee, she is responsible for documenting the plugins and API inside Woothemes. Andres the guy that works at WPML, Julia a German girl works as a freelancer in Berlin. Theses things make the event easier because I started to know the people and know whom I asked what I need do.

My Task

Now was in the registration; this time was a little hard because, I needed to give many different pieces of information about the event, about the rules, how solved some small problems. But was good to practice my English.

After the registration, I finish my tasks in te second day and at 11 AM I went to Halle E to watch the lectures, the first that I saw was about rest API. I think this is the focus of Automatic in this time, Calypso, Rest API and REACT are present in all lectures about development. If you haven’t studied yet, you need look theses technologies.

When the second day ended, I was so tired but felt everything was good.

After the second day was the after party, I had to meet my friends in another party and just pass to say hello and decided to walk around the city before went to another place and this was the best idea. Wien at night is so beautiful, the architecture, the city centre, the lights everything creates a wonderful atmosphere. The city is incredible. After I was little walking through the city, I meet my Brazilian friend that works in Mailpoet, there we talked about work, life in Europe and remote jobs.

The contributor day

The last day was the contributor day, there were many tracks, that we could contribute to:

  • Community
  • Marketing
  • Theme Review
  • WordPress Core
  • Rest API
  • Translation

There we needed to choose one of these themes, and I decided Theme review was a good experience, in the first part, the Leader developer shows how to review a theme and give many tips. In the second part, we choose a Theme in the repository to review. For me was the first time that I reviewed a theme in the WordPress repository before I didn’t figure out this was so simple.

Last words

In resume work as a volunteer was the best thing that I decided to do in my time in Europe, I knew many people, getting touch with old friends. Was a big opportunity to know the European WordPress Community and was my first and biggest event as crew in Europe. Now I will start looking for another event here in Europe.

Wordcamp Europe first day recap

I finished my first experience as a volunteer in an IT event outside Brazil. Now I can say – It was amazing. Wordcamp Europe was a huge event with more than 1500 people from different nationalities. A crazy thing about Europe, here is easy to find different nationalities anywhere, imagine in a huge event like that. Many different cultures in a short distance if we compare it to Brazil. But sometimes language is not a real problem most of then speak english. It is possible speak with, Polish, German, Dutch, Finnish…

It is time

On Friday at 7:30AM some volunteers were there waiting to the doors open, some of them knew each others, because two days before happened some warm up events. When they opened the doors to us, we got the last instructions to start to work in the event: where the stages were, what our tasks were etc…. At 8:30AM the doors WERE opened for attendants. The same problem about registration happened in any WordCamp around the world, a huge group arrived at the same time and we needed to make the things go quickly. But always before the first lecture the groups were inside the event. This moment reminded of WordCamp São Paulo.

9:30AM I STARTED to WORK: door guard. What I need to do? Things like: Pass instructions about the Stage, informations about the schedule, show the directions to other stages and close the door when the place is full. Easy? A little. It was good because I started to speak a lot, I enjoyed the time to practice my english during two hours, The plan was to stays there only one hour, but the time passed by and I didn’t notice. When I finished I got another task: to organise the vegetarian line to the lunch. And my last task was inside the Swag station.

The lectures

After my work I could watch one lecture about Calypso the new react WordPress API, Matias presented this lecture, I met him in my first WordCamp São Paulo. The second lecture that I saw was with Erica she talked about the duties and challenges of being a “Happiness Engineer”.

The first day was little hard. When I arrived there I was tired because I went to another trip before and started working in sequence, the first day I needed to know many things about the event, many new words, new friends. But I love Wordcamps and this made things easier.

I was a Wordcamp organiser and volunteer in Brazil for a long time and the feeling is the same in another country, the first minutes when the people started to arrive, at the same time I started to think about all the things we need to do the best event, I started to feel the adrenaline to make things work.

WordCamp Europa

No final de junho entre os dias 24 e 26 acontece o WordCamp Europa o principal WordCamp na região com mais de 2 mil participantes esse ano o evento acontece em Viena capital da Áustria. Esse será o meu segundo WordCamp na europa já que meu primeiro foi em Londres logo nos primeiros meses que cheguei aqui.

Foi legal ver outras comunidades e notar que a comunidade brasileira é bem forte e com um alto nível técnico comparada as palestras que eu vi. A única diferença que eu ví no WordCamp Londres é o números de empresas que investem no evento. Isso deixa mais fácil você montar uma super estrutura com: legendas em tempo real, quatro auditórios, buffet ultra organizado com opções vegana, happy hour. Mas esse detalhe me da mais orgulho porque conseguimos fazer WordCamps de qualidade em diferentes estados.

Mas vamos falar o que interessa, logo quando cheguei fiquei de olho nos WordCamps selecionei alguns que poderia participar, fiz um levantamento sobre custo, grade e país que queria muito visitar. Não sei se todo mundo sabe mas estou passando por uma fase de estudante/mochileiro então meus recursos são limitados. Não posso sair viajando toda a europa então a escolha tem que ser feita a dedo.

É claro que o principal evento não poderia ficar de fora dessa lista. Primeira barreira foi a inscrição, estamos falando do principal evento  da Europa, ou seja, as inscrições acabaram em segundos. Entrei em contato com a organização, contei toda a história que sempre participo e palestro em WordCamps, ajudei na organização do WordCamp São Paulo por 3 anos e gostaria muito participar. A resposta foi melhor que esperava fui convidado para participar como voluntário.

Agora é só aguardar e fazer as malas, já foram passadas as primeiras instruções precisamos chegar um dias antes para alinhar as informações nada diferente que fazemos no Brasil, a única diferença é a quantidade de participantes de diferentes países.

O WordCamp Europa serão 3 dias de muito conhecimento com palestras divididas nos seguintes temas comunidade, desenvolvimento, negócios, design e conteúdo. Nos dias 24 e 25 serão o dia dedicado a palestras no dia 26 é o contributor Day, um dia reservado para contribuição com a plataforma.
