#WCNO 2015 is Gone. See You in 2016!


Hard to believe a week has passed since we were all in Oslo for WordCamp Norway 2015. It was an incredible event and have to say probably the best WordCamp Norway yet!

We wanted to say thank you again for making this event possible. Thank you to our sponsors, speakers, volunteers, organizers, and most of all our attendees.

Over the next few weeks we’ll post an event re-cap post here along with a survey so we can start thinking about how we can make next year’s event even better for you all.

We really hope you enjoyed WordCamp Norway 2015!

Bye for now 🙂

Winter Day & WordCamp After Hours

WordCamp isn’t over after our main schedule of events on Saturday and we hope you can join us on Sunday for some more social activities and an evening of more WordPress!

Winter Day

Last year a few of us went up to the old bobsled run at Frognerseteren for some great fun. We had so much fun that we’d like to invite everyone up there on Sunday afternoon for some sledding (weather permitting) and we can grab some lunch at the restaurant up there.

WordCamp After Hours

If you’re still around Oslo on Sunday evening and haven’t gotten enough WordPress we’ll be meeting at Comfort Hotel XPRESS to have what we’re calling “WordCamp After Hours”.

Quite a bit of us will still be in the area and figured we could make use of this space to have a meetup style event and contribute back to WordPress, co-work, mingle some more and use their projectors for lightning talks (come prepared) and show & tell. You can sign-up here.

We hope you can make it!
