A journey of a thousand miles

…starts with a single step.

40 months ago, with the wish of sharing our love for WordPress, we decided to start a meetup.


35 meetups and one WordCamp later, the group counts more than 600 WordPress enthusiasts who love listening to great speakers (like Bruce in the picture above).

That simple first gathering in January 2013 was my first experience contributing to the WordPress community by bringing twenty people together in Vienna,  and next month we are welcoming more than two thousands  people for the largest WordCamp ever: WordCamp Europe 2016!
