At the WCEU, Morten Rand-Hendriksen dedicated himself to the topic of "Ethics in Web Design".

Success with cross-team code reviews
Code reviews have become an integral part of most developers' workflow. They ensure that new code doesn't go live until it's been reviewed by another person. Norwegian startup Confrere has applied this process to the entire company and reports how it has increased collaboration and productivity.

As Head of Content Marketing, Leefke always has the RAIDBOXES magazine "wp unboxed", the newsletter & the social media channels in her sights. That's why she always knows the latest developments in the WP community. Unfortunately she is rarely to be found in Münster nowadays. But Hamburg is said to be rather nice too.
