WordCamp Russia is in less than a week!

WordCamp Russia 2013

I first thought of making a WordCamp in Russia a little over three years ago, when I was running a web development shop in Moscow. I had filled out my application form and was a single click away from applying. I don’t quite remember what stopped me back then, but whatever it was, thank god!

I had no idea what it is like to organize a WordCamp, in fact, I haven’t been to a single WordCamp back then, except for a live stream or two. A lot of things have changed in the past three years: I attended, spoke and volunteered at quite a few WordCamps, I ran a monthly WordPress meetup for over a year, I made friends with many pro WordCamp organizers across the planet, and today I’m happy to announce that…

WordCamp Russia 2013 is this Saturday! If I had to express my excitement in exclamation marks, the MySQL server would try to return a result set which is too large and fail with a timeout error.

Everything is going fairly smoothly and we’re slowly approaching that OMGWTFBBQ planning phase. Watch out for recap posts in the coming weeks and don’t hesitate to visit us if you’re in Moscow this weekend.
