Show Notes

In this episode, Andrew Palmer of Bertha.ai reflects on his time at WordCamp Europe.

If you were stuck at home to watch from afar like me, your FOMO was probably running at 110%. Unlike Andrew, I missed out on the awesome talks, after parties, and the ever important hallway track. Missing friends and colleagues in one of the most beautiful places in the world! I'm happy to see it was a successful event.

If you had a great time, or appreciate their hard work, say thanks to the WCEU Organizing Team.
