WordPress Around World: Costa Rica Welcomes Wapuu and Bulgaria Offers Sun and Surf


WordCamp San José and WordCamp Varna will bring people together over their love of WordPress, and custom stickers will be on site for everyone to enjoy. There will be dozens of sessions across each day and the latest WordPress developments will take center stage. Let's not forget the after party, after all, it's a WordCamp, which means tons of learning and networking in various formats.

Down in Costa Rica, a sticker sheet with two Wapuus, including one with Wapuu as a three-toed sloth, the cuddly denizen of Costa Rica's rainforest, plus five other peels that feature WordPress logos and an event sticker to remember this edition. With eight stickers to choose from, attendees will have plenty of variety to get creative with sticker placement to represent WordCamp San José wherever they go. This is the second WordCamp in San José, and we love to see the organizing team really get into their sticker art.

Over in Bulgaria on the shores of the Black Sea, the beach and resort town of Varna will be hosting their first-ever WordCamp, and they went with a classic circle sticker featuring a clean vector design based on the maritime theme of their location. A series of circles in a yellow-to-orange palette builds out the sun with the WordPress logo as the center and then the waves create the foundation, with two flying seabirds. Beautiful colors and a simple concept really help reinforce the design focus of a WordCamp, and the event branding shows through in a small type on the bottom of the sticker. What a great sticker for their first WordCamp.

We are so stoked for these new WordPress communities, and we work with so many around the world. It's wonderful to feel the energy on social media all weekend long, and we know that WordCamp attendees are super promoters of the platform and the power is has to build a better internet. And did you know, WordPress is older than Twitter and Facebook and that WordPress powers nearly 27% of all websites on the internet?
