Current temperature in Zagreb is 31°C. It’s Friday. We know some of you are already going on a vacation — maybe you are even on your way to one of the 1000+ islands in Croatia. We have a quick announcement that will make your Friday even better. We are rolling out with the first batch of tickets for WordCamp Zagreb.

The ticket price is a bargain. You get a T-shirt, tasty lunch and plenty of coffee during conference day, after–party (you don’t want to miss that one), as well as an opportunity to register for our workshops and a Contributor Day as soon as we announce those. People who have purchased the conference ticket will have precedence.

We are also trying something new this year. Besides having a regular ticket that costs € 20, we are also adding a Small Business ticket for € 180 and Freelancer ticket for € 40. Whether you run a small business or you are freelancing who works with WordPress, you can purchase one of these special tickets and show your appreciation for our community.
