For me Seville was the second WordCamp Europe i attended after Sofia, last year and it was a good one. Seville is such a beautiful city with a lot of places to visit, with a great cuisine and excellent athmosphere. The location chosen by the organizers was a very good one, a very nice hotel with great hospitality. The hotel is just few minutes walking distance from the historical city center, where the sightseeing can begin and where there are a lot of restaurant and terraces offering a complete Spanish experience. The area becomes really crowded during the evenings and it is very fun to hang out and have a sangria or beer.
WordCamp Seville didn’t bring something new, i enjoyed several of the presentations, but i also believe that some of them could have been a little more technical. WordCamp ended with Karim’s (Crowd Favorite’s CEO) presentation about acquisitions and growth, a good lesson to learn before thinking of an exit plan. I noticed that the contributor’s day was really popular and the number of achievements communicated was impressive. The location where the after party took place was also nice, but too small to host all that people.
For us, Crowd Favorite, WordCamp Europe was the perfect way for people from US, Romania, Italy, Bulgaria and Holland to meet and spend some quality time together.
What’s next? WordCamp Europe Vienna!
