WordCamp Split afterparty will be at the Moon bar

Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well and that you’re already in Split learning at one of our 6 workshops and if not – that you are on your way here. Conference will open tomorrow at 9:00 and will last until 18:00, and afterparty will begin at 20:00 at Moon bar, Ul. Matice hrvatske 1, 21000, Split.

We have a limit on spending but since it’s pretty high (we want you to relax and not think about money), just make sure to get there at 8PM sharp (once the limit is reached, everyone pays for their own drinks). Though, we plan for each participant to have at leasts 2 drinks ;).

Settle up, get a swim, and see you tomorrow morning at 8:00 when the registration will open.

Još 2 dana da odaberete veličinu majice

Manje od 2 tjedna je ostalo do drugog hrvatskog WordCampa, onog u gradu pod Marjanom i prvog WordCampa koji se održava u predivnom Splitu. Radionice su već najavljene, imamo ih 5 i to u 2 termina – podnevnom i poslijepodnevnom. Jeste li se već prijavili za radionice? Ako niste, sada je vrijeme jer broj mjesta je ograničen. Radionice su inače besplatne za sve.

Sljedeća stvar koju trebate napraviti je kupiti kartu kako biste mogli prisustvovati konferenciji i poslušati jedno od 13 odličnih predavanja, vodećih stručnjaka iz svijeta WordPressa.

A imamo zaista dobre predavače od Tomaža Zamana iz Codeablea (koji će kao najbolji prošlogodišnji predavač otvoriti ovogodišnji WordCamp Split), preko Joška Džidića iz Sucuria, Nevene TomovićMilana Ivanovića Manage WP-a, Luce Sartonija iz Automattica, Noela Tocka iz Human Madea i Emira Kurtovića iz Toptala. Domaće snage predvode Tomislav Leljak i Andrej Šimunaj iz AM2 Studia, zatim Borko Livić (jedan od najaktivnijih hrvatskih WordPressaša koji će održati predavanje na hrvatskom jeziku), te dizajnerski trio – Natko Hasić, Lucijan Blagonić i Nela Dunato.

Radionice će isto biti zanimljive, a ove godine ih imamo 5 (dvije više nego lani). Kako su radionice besplatne za sve, za njih se možete prijaviti bez obzira imate li kupljenu kartu za WordCamp Split, no u slučaju većeg broja prijavljenih prednost će imati oni koji su kupili kartu za konferenciju. Radionice su različite i sve osim jedne se održavaju na hrvatskom jeziku. U podne krećemo s radionicom o onboardingu i korisničkoj podršci, koju će voditi Aleksandar Savković iz Manage WP-a, te onu o prikupljanju i vizualizaciji podataka koju će držati Konrad Leon Toldy iz našeg edukacijskog partnera Algebre. Poslijepodnevne radionice otvara Luca Sartoni s “The Art of Public Speaking” (ako ste se planirali okušati kao predavač na jednom od budućih WordPress Meetupa ili nekom stranom WordCampu – ovo je idealna radionica za vas). Konrad Leon Toldy će održati radionicu o izradi WordPress pluginova za početnike, dok će Krešimir Končić iz nagrađivane agencije Neuralab, održati radionicu o upravljanju WordPress projekatima (ako dolazite iz agencije, ovo je radionica za vas).

Još 30 29 28 27 25 22 16 7 karata

Za WordCamp Split ostalo je tek 29 karata, a svi koji do srijede navečer kupe kartu, moći će odabrati veličinu majice koju ćete moći podignuti na dan konferencije. Inače, baš smo danas najavili novi vizualni identitet hrvatskih WordCampova, pa tamo možete vidjeti kako će izgledati majica.

Ne zaboravite da smo za studente osigurali određen broj karata s popustima od 50%.

Vidimo se u Splitu za 11 dana ;).
