Welcome to WordCamp Split 2016
Welcome to WordCamp Split
Another year in Croatia and another WordCamp. Theres a slight change in the naming of the event this year. So, this year, the Croatian WordPress community is organizing WordCamp Split 2016. This change was initiated by WordCamp Central in a effort to unify the naming scheme worldwide. The change is purely cosmetic and the Croatian WordPress community will continue its yearly organization of WordCamps and rotate host cities and organizers.
The local Split community is maturing and having a event like WordCamp would be a great catalyst to spur further growth. September is also a great time to meet in Split. Good food, weather and the sea will certainly make the whole socializing experience much more enjoyable. And yes, there will be a great afterparty.
WordCamp Split will be the official Croatian WordCamp in 2016 and also, WordCamp Split is a perfect opportunity to meet people that work and live WordPress.
WordCamp Split will be held in the great amphitheater of the Faculty of Economics in Split, located on the University campus.
The venue is accessible via public transport buses line 18 at the “University Campus” stop. Bus ticket costs 1,5 €. You can use taxi service or UBER to get to the venue. The cost is around 3-4 € from city center. Taxi is available on +385 21 1777 (Radio Taxi Split). Parking will be available and free of charge.
