Speaker and topic announcements, live stream and more! – WordPress Stockholm meetup

Hi WordPressers,

We are extremely proud to announce our rockstar speakers for the WordPress Stockholm meetup – march 11 2015!

Not one, not two, but three of them to boot!

Without further ado, our speakers are:


So you want a multilingual WordPress site?
Erik Bernskiöld, Bernskiold Media

Let’s talk languages. Most websites today have a need to at least be bilingual, particularly in Europe. This presentation covers both important strategic issues to tackle, as well as the technical side of making a WordPress website multilingual in a reliable and professional way.



Lessons learned using WordPress as a CMS
Hjörtur Hilmarsson, 14islands

WordPress was initially designed as a blogging platform, but is now being used to drive content for full-blown websites. This talk will explore ways to make WordPress work as an CMS and lessons learned while building unique themes for clients.


How I use WordPress in my day-to-day business
Cecilia Svensson, Vaja

I left my profession as an IT-consultant to become a writer, lecturer and solopreneur. WordPress is one of my most valuable tools for my business. During my session I’ll happily share my experiences of growing a business, what my favorite tools and plugins are, and how to publish your own book.


Live streaming and videos!

Thanks to Andreas Ek we now have a live streaming setup! You will be able to follow the live stream from the comfort of your couch. We will also provide recorded videos of the event.
