WordCamp Utrecht 2017 - Another Recap from Plesk

WordCamp Utrecht: Another Plesk Recap

The WordCamp marathon for Plesk and myself continued when Plesk proudly sponsored WordCamp Utrecht (Netherlands) last weekend. And there’s more to come! The Plesk team is now in Nashville getting ready to rock WordCamp US. 

Talks for WordCamp Utrecht

My own session was scheduled for the second day. So I got to enjoy some great, instructive talks from other speakers on Saturday (Day 1).

In total, WordCamp Utrecht had 18 talks and covered many diverse topics. Follow the link to check them out, in case you missed any! 

But for me, it was a pleasure to introduce old and new WordPress friends to our new Plesk Wapuu stickers – which everybody loved. Plus, we equipped our organizer team and volunteers with Plesk lanyards that matched their t-shirts perfectly. Even our beloved friend Elvis Plesky found his way to Utrecht – in the goodie bags of 250 attendees!

Plesk’s WordPress Toolkit

During the event, we shared info about our WordPress Toolkit in the guest blog post. So do give it a read – you can find on the WordCamp Utrecht site itself. Moreover, you can click below to discover more about the Toolkit for yourself. Or have a chat about it with one of our experts. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions!

My Plesk Journey Revealed on Stage

Then Sunday came and I was itching to share my own WordPress journey and how I became a Pleskian. It was so fun to interact with the audience, even on Twitter. Because my feedback was again heart-warming, it encouraged me to apply as a speaker during future WordCamps.

Contributor afternoon for WordCamp Utrecht

Finally, we all dedicated the last few hours of the event to the WordPress Open Source Project and everyone’s contribution. Different team leads helped onboard new contributors as more contributors worked on new and existing projects together.

The Community Team, which I actually joined, was able to announce three new WordPress meetups in The Netherlands. In the end, we released tickets for the very special WordCamp Retreat Soltau in May 2018. 

Snapped Memories of WordCamp Utrecht

So this was my first edition of WordCamp Utrecht and all I can say is kudos. Organizers SjoerdManuela and all the amazing volunteers made the atmosphere really inclusive for local and international guests.
