The results of the WCEU 2018 Attendee Survey are in: 98% of the 566 respondents from 49 countries said they would recommend WCEU to a friend and 90% are very likely to attend the next event in Berlin. Of those who participated in the survey, 49% were attending WCEU for the first time and 37% of them were attending their first WordCamp. Overall, attendees reported overwhelmingly positive experiences, which is a big affirmation of the organizing team that continues to lift the bar higher for WordCamps around the world.
If you missed out on the WordCamp, the good news is that you can catch all of the sessions on WordPress.tv. The top 10 sessions have been curated by attendees who responded to the survey. These sessions cover some of the most important topics for WordPress professionals in 2018 and beyond:

Attendees were also big fans of the workshops introduced at this event. 78% of respondents said they would like to see them again next year. A couple of the workshop recordings have yet to make it to WordPress.tv but may be available at a later time. The three most popular workshops attendees identified were all related to Gutenberg:
- (Gutenberg) Block Development with React – Zac Gordon, Julien Melissas
