What is WordCamp Sinemorets Retreat?
WordCamp events are a great place to see a lot of WordPress-related people in one place. As well as, listen to useful and practical talks. And learn what is new in the world of WordPress. When WordCamp is a Retreat, it combines a nice weekend break with the event itself. That is why the Sinemorets Sea was a great place to organize the first WordCamp Retreat in Bulgaria. The event was filled with useful content, thanks to the speakers and organizers. Also, time to rest, and relax by the sea. And of course a lot of networking with cool people from the WordPress Community.
Talks and Activities
The talks were related to WooComerce, AJAX, Gutenberg, SEO, Multilingual Websites, Website Optimization, and more interesting WordPress topics. The speakers were some of the most influential WordPress specialists in Bulgaria and nearby countries (Serbia and North Macedonia). Among them were names like Peter Nikolov, Vladimir Vasilev, Nicky Krastev, Mitko Kochkovski, and others. We had talks both at the ‘Studio Sea’ and on the beach by the sea.
In the entertainment part, we had an exciting boat trip on the Veleka River. As well as, spending a good time at beach bars, sunbathing by the sea, canoeing in the river. We also enjoyed all of the time a lot of beautiful natural sceneries. 🙂And in the evenings we had a fun time partying again by the sea.
