It was incredible! My first international WordCamp. I’m still thrilled to have met people I otherwise meet only on the Internet. Six colleagues and I travelled from Germany to Leiden / Netherlands to hear about new things, connect with known and unknown people, discuss about WordPress, combine functionalities of plugins, get inspired by excellent presentations and learn to contribute and get involved in improvement of WordPress.
One thing, that has fascinated me: How young the most core contributor are, I´ve met there!
The most touching moment for me was the amicable meeting with Matt Mullenweg. He is a warm-hearted and charismatic man. His enthusiasm for WordPress is poignant and motivating. I feel very honored to have a short, impromtu interview with him.
From a spontaneous idea I walked through the rooms and picked up some voices with my small camcorder. Here are the results 😉
Interview with Matt Mullenweg – Co-Founder of WordPress, Founder auf Automattic.
Interview with Samuel “Otto” Wood – “chief cook and bottle washer” of WordPress.org
Interview with Mike Schroder – WordPress core contributor
Interview with Marko Heijnen – WordPress core contributor and GlotPress lead developer
Interview with Ryan Hellyer – WordPress Plugin Author
I´ve so many impressions, to write them down. My conclusion: I am WordCamp infected!
To see some more impressions, you can take a look into my Google+ photo album.
