Square Happiness on the way to Berlin – WCEU 2019

The WordCamp Europe 2019 is coming and we are getting ready to travel to Berlin to be part of one of the best WordPress events. We hope to meet many friends there but we also hope to meet new people, new professionals, new ideas and new challenges.

The WCEU program is really interesting so we will have to divide the Square Happiness team to attend different presentations about different topics.

We have already chosen some talks which we do not want to miss, so we would like to share it through this post.

1.- For the love of code: Modernising WordPress, plugins, and themes by Juliette Reinders Folmer as speaker. She is co-author of PHPCompatibility, initiator of PHPModernizer and created the PHP Cheatsheets.
Juliette Reinders Folmer will talk about how we can improve the website code, making it faster and safer using modern PHP.

2.- How to engage your online audience: Lessons from the field of education. There will be two speakers: Jesse van de Hulsbeek and Marieke van de Rakt.
Jesse van de Hulsbeek is a university trained teacher and he leads Yoast’s online SEO training platform.
Marieke van de Rakt is a Yoast CEO and also Yoast Academy founder.
They will talk to us about how to connect to our audience with practical examples that will help us understand it better.

3.- Advanced database management for plugins. John Jacoby will be the speaker. John is a software developer and project lead for BuddyPress and bbPress.
He will talk about what is a database, custom data structures and which plugins can be used to make our life easier in WordPress.

4.- The big, bad content planning workshop with Vassilena Valchanova as speaker. She is a marketing specialist with 10 years of experience.
Vassilena Valchanova will talk about the different types of marketing content. It is a very interesting talk because we will see how to generate content and how can we manage it later on.

See you at WCEU!
