WordCamp Europe 2023

This year marks WordPress 20th anniversary! This will of course be celebrated by the annual three-day event, because the WordPress software is nothing without its people. So at the same time we celebrate our amazing, diverse community of web and WordPress specialists!

These days are all about the latest WordPress developments but also topics like Artificial Intelligent and WordPress, digital sustainability, web accessibility and inclusivity.

Of course, we have extra attention for our colleagues Rian and Mitchell who are shining on stage. Rian will join the panel today from 16:00 to 17:00, discussing “Women and Non-Binary Folx of WordPress”. Mitchell will talk about “Accessibility Meets Style: A Design Revolution” on Saturday 10 June. If you are also there, don’t miss our stars!

From 8 to 10 June 2023, the WordPress Community will dominate the cultural metropolis of Athens.

Today’s Highlights

Meanwhile, we finished Contributor Day and explored Athens city! The Level Level team took beautiful walks around the Acropolis with a cooling cocktail on the terrace. The first conference day in full swing, here are some highlights!

Contributor Day

A number of Level Level’ers joined various working groups yesterday during Contributing Day to improve the basics of WordPress. As WordPress is an open source software, the source code is free available for anyone to view, use, modify and distribute. So it is important that the basis of WordPress continues to evolve. The design team has been busy this year with optimisations for learn.wordpress.org.

A11Y Collective Stand

Level Level sponsors again this year with The A11Y Collective! At The A11Y Collective you can follow professional courses in the field of web accessibility. At the event you can find us at our own A11Y booth. In this cool booth we are happy to answer all visitors’ questions about web accessibility, but we also have all kinds of cool promotions.

Attendees test their knowledge with the Test-your-a11y-Knowledge Quiz] where we raffle access to The A11Y Collective Essentials among the entrants twice a day.

Due to the great success of last year, we have the Super Quick Scan again this year! Via the form on The A11Y Collective website, interested parties are told how the site scores in terms of accessibility and we share the quick wins and recommendations at the booth the same day and we are happy to discuss this with each other.

If you are not present at WordCamp but also want to have your website scanned for accessibility? No problem, you can! We’ll email your results when we get home!
