Impressions from and around WordCamp London 2015

Before heading to London to meet up with friends and having a great time at WordCamp London, my nomad friend Noel and I spent a few weeks up in Norway, working & exploring.

Flying in from Oslo the first event around WordCamp started on Thursday and was the casual friends of Human Made party where I had the honour of taking some pictures. It was a good mix of nice drinks and good discussions about the WordPress community and the WP-API.

WordCamp London 2015

I had a fantastic time at WordCamp London 2015. Karin and Pascal from my team flew in on Friday to be ready for the talks starting on Saturday. The talks I enjoyed most next to meeting awesome people and friends from the WordPress community were:

Karin and I took some pictures at the WordCamp:

At dinner Petya and Siobhan asked me to fill in for Simon Dickson as he was sick. I got the chance to talk about “Multisite on a tight budget” at WordCamp London, thanks for having me.

Photo walk with Karin & Dan

Back in 2009 Karin and I met Dan Rubin as one of the speakers at @media2009. He inspired us to start required+ and pursue our dream of building a different kind of agency. We met again and went on a photo walk in London together:

As you can see, it was an intense week in London and a great WordCamp London 2015. The only flaw this week was the so-called “smell-elevator” in the apartment building :D. No worries, the apartment was fantastic.

A big thank you to all the people involved with WordCamp London!

Friends of Human Made #WCLDN

Last night the humble folks from Human Made invited their friends to join them for some drinks before WordCamp London. Good drinks and excellent discussions made this an excellent intro to the upcoming WordCamp. I had the honour to take some pictures of this chill event.
