1. The venue
Excellent choice of venue: a conference center that is part of a Seville hotel. I chose to stay at the same hotel, so getting to the talks was as easy as getting on the elevator and going down two floors. The conference center had all the conditions you should expect, including Wi-Fi access that worked!
2. The speakers
I can imagine how hard it is to put together the lineup of speakers for each WordCamp. The profile of the attendees is very varied, so it must be quite the challenge. All in all, there were very good talks, ranging from security, to programming, to community, to UX, and many more.
3. The networking
The people you meet is an essential part of any conference. I believe that’s why the organisers provided plenty of coffee breaks. Several interesting conversations get to emerge, and who knows what may come of them.
4. The food
Not the hotel food. It would be news if it was very good. But the tapas you can find a bit all over Seville are worth a taste, no doubt. And if you rely on word of mouth (meaning Foursquare), you can find cheap enough places that are good quality.
5. The heat
Overwhelming! Over 40ºC! The good thing was that, after the conference (at 7pm), there was still enough sun to go for a dip in the hotel pool and some much deserved relaxing.
See you next year in Vienna, Austria!
