Company Retreat & WordPress Conference

It has almost become a tradition attending the yearly WordCamp Europe, which we did this year too. We met a few days before the conference in Berlin to work together on a few tasks, laugh and of course to eat well.

Our Week


We spent the whole week in Berlin. The first part of the week was planned efficiently and we focused on our projects. On Wednesday Ulrich joined, he had exams needed to take before. On Wednesday Evening the whole team was complete.

WordCamp Europe

On Thursday the official Contributor Day started, where the community meets to further the development of WordPress. From our team Ulrich and Dominik took part.

Dominik lead the Meta-i18n and GlotPress team. There they tested the next GlotPress version and hammered out a plan how feedback to translations can be given in the future. A proposal for handling translation editors requests had also been published. Ulrich was active in the Tide team.

On Friday and Saturday were the main conference days of WordCamp Europe 2019. This was the largest WordCamp Europe till today with 2’734 attendees. There were many interesting talks, whether for developers, designers or from a business point of view. A highlight was of course Karin’s workshop “The User Testing Toolbox” on Saturday. If you want to know more you should check out the summary: Do it yourself – the User Testing Toolbox

Our accommodation

Not far from the WordCamp Europe venue, we found a suitable apartment for us in Neuköln. Big enough, so that each team member had his own space, but also with enough room to work together.

Storage Apartment Sonnenallee – Industry style. Very generous in regards to space.

The consumption of food

The day should not start without food, or even for some of us, a cappuccino and we should not let the day end without a good dinner. Here are a few coffee shops, restaurants and bars, which we found especially good and can recommend:

Breakfast, Brunch

Dots – FRESH & ORGANIC Café · Bistro · Berlin · Neukölln. This is where we most frequently came to. Delicious scrambled eggs and good cappuccino. Very friendly service and cosy ambience. Recommended!

Roamers – on the last day, we set out to have breakfast at Roamers. Karin and Velthy had already been and had only good memories. Unfortunately it is not easy for 5 people to get a table on Sunday morning, so we had to queue before they opened for a suitable place. It was well worth it as the food was excellent.

Pancakes please.

Café Espera – Directly at the Sonnenallee and within walking distance from our accommodation. Very friendly service, delicious croissants and good cappuccino..

BICHOU – Good coffee and snacks.
