We've just gotten back from WordCamp Europe 2017, held in Paris, and boy was it awesome! Our entire team found the experience insightful and important. In just two concentrated days, we got to meet top WordPress figures, previously only communicated via email or Skype. We also met various members of the WordPress community from all over the world, all earning a living through WordPress in one way or the other. We listened to a handful of riveting talks, including the inspiring closing interview with Matt Mullenweg. Oh, and we visited Eiffel, obviously! You can't write about WordCamp without addressing the generous swag handed by the contributing sponsored. This WC's notable merch included BlueHost spinners (thanks Nick), Yoast Lego minifigures and WPEngine Smartphone holders (which were handed with a guarantee it will change my life forever). Another memorable part of WCEU were the parties. We couldn't attend all of them, but we did get to partake in Freemius & WPEngine's Friday party, held in a cozy underground cellar, which included free wine and free food. It provided the perfect surrounding to converse with other plugin developers and get to know them better. Also worth a mention
