WordCamp Marseille

Organizing a WordCamp in four months is it possible? Ask the organizers of WordCamp Marseille. Not only they set up their first WordCamp in a record time (and with summer vacation in the middle) but they did perfectly!

It’s during WordCamp Europe, in Paris, that I heard about the upcoming WordCamp Marseille. The first WordCamp in the so called “Region PACA.” Since I have family in the area, I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to kill two birds into one stone. But, in fact, it is Sandra Boulou, one of the speakers, who made everything possible for me to come, from offering entry ticket, to the sofa of her Airbnb.

And there I was, one month later, going around with my iphone and my mic, filming and editing the conferences for VINUBIS. Thierry Pigot caught me in action…

…or winning a book at the closing remarks raffle:



As usual, the event ended with a great after party where I had a lot of fun, as well as Sandra.

Until we decided it was time to go back to our Airbnb for a good night of sleep. The day after, Sandra took her train back to Paris, and I went to visit my family at St Cyr sur Mer. It was a wonderful weekend in the south of France.
