I went to Wordcamp Paris last week. The event was held On Friday 17th January at MAS Paris and Saturday 18th at Sup’Internet, and organised by WordPress Francophone.

Having joined a so-called Paris WordPress Developer Meetup group a while ago, and failed to see even one drinking session within the community, I was slightly dubitative over the success of such an event. But with a two-day conference all booked out, I can only have praise for the organising team as they made of those two days a real opportunity to bond and discuss wordpress-related matters.

Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t like everything I’ve seen nor heard. In fact, I happened to disagree with a number of things I’ve heard both on stage and while discussing with some fellow participants, especially on the theming front, but it was – again – a wordpress event full of quality and all round worth attending.

And the winners are

My kudos go to:
(personal kudos, might not reflect the reality)

Did I mention that we got the two-day conf, and on top of that coffee/croissants/a bit of a lunch on Thursday for the mere cost of 30 euros? Bargain, you’ll tell me, and bargain, I shall agree. It doesn’t seem like much compared to the big web confs out there, but it was well worth it and such a refreshing event.

To sum it up: See you next year.

Note: take a peek at the event’s official pictures.
