WordCamp: connecting with the WordPress community

WordCamp Barcelona, the event bringing together professionals and fans of WordPress – the most widely used open-source content management platform in the world–, was held in the city on 5 and 6 May. The team from the .barcelona domain had the chance to take part, connecting the WordPress community with our city.

We had plenty of visitors to our stand in the exhibition space at the fair, where we were able to share detailed information on the singularities and unique advantages of the .barcelona domain and resolve doubts on how to register a .barcelona domain, personalise it and take advantage of it to increase the online visibility of projects linked to the city.

We also spoke to various .barcelona users, who highlighted how a domain linked to the city has helped them to position their business or organisation on the internet. Among those attending, we met the team from Web Empresa, who talked to us about the solidarity project to help Luah, a girl with a degenerative visual illness who has had an operation in the city.

We also had the chance to attend various talks and sessions where digital marketing experts and local web developers shared their experiences, offering the chance to get to know the local WordPress community close-up.

Taking part in WordCamp Barcelona was a great opportunity to get to know the local WordPress community and connect individuals and companies with the digital identity and values of Barcelona. See you at the next WordCamp!
