WordCamp Europe 2018 Announces Speakers

Editor’s Note: This post will be updated with each new group announcement. 

WordCamp Europe, the biggest WordCamp in the world, is just around the corner in Belgrade, Serbia. Users gather from all over to celebrate the CMS.

Organizers have started announcing speakers in groups based on the topic they’re talking about.

Group One: Open Source and the Web

The first group was announced last week and revolves around Open Source and the Web.

  • Paolo Belcastro is going to be talking about “The World of WordPress”
  • David Needham will tackle, “An Intro to Drupal for WordPress Users”
  • Hajj Flemings will talk about “Rebrand Cities: Crushing the Digital Divide, One Website at a Time”
  • Miriam Schwab’s talk is called “Content security policies: a whole new way of securing your website that no one knows about”
  • Heather Burns will discuss, “Developing for Privacy and Data Protection”

Group Two: Design

The speakers in group two are all talking about design.

  • John Maeda will cover “WordPress and Inclusive Design”
  • Morten Rand-Hendricksen is speaking about “The Ethics of Web Design”
  • Simon Cooke’s talk is called “Origins of Design Inspiration”
  • Alberto Medina and Thierry Muller will present a dual talk on “Progressive WordPress Themes”
  • Joshua World is presenting “You, yes you, Need to Sketch!”

Group Three: Gutenberg

One of the biggest WordPress topics of 2018 was Gutenberg, so it makes sense WordCamp Europe dedicated an entire group to talking about it.

  • Tammie Lister will cover “Anatomy of a Block: Gutenberg design patterns”
  • Matias Venture, who presented about Gutenberg at State of the Word, will speak about “The Language of Gutenberg”
  • The entire Gutenberg Team will be there to teach us, “Gutenberg: Creating Blocks and Extending the Editor”
  • Zac Gordon’s talk is about “Block Development with React”
  • Lara Schneck’s talk is called “Let’s Build a Gutenberg Block”

This is only some of the amazing speakers that will be presenting at WordCamp Europe. The conference goes from June 14-16 and tickets are still on sale.
