February 25, 2018 — A frank and honest discussion with women who have been involved for different amounts of time in WordPress – ranging from development to designer to marketer.
January 24, 2018 — In this talk, I’ll explore common questions that freelancers have when deciding to build their own websites, and give some answers that will help you on your journey.
December 10, 2017 — The Italian WordPress community was dormant for years, until a bunch of people got together at WCEU Contributor Day in Seville, in 2015, and decided it was time to revive it.
After months of online chats in our Slack team, we organised an event that kick-started an avalanche of Meetups and WordCamps in Italy: a stand-alone Contributor Day.
Two years later, Italy has more than 20 active Meetups, 4 cities with WordCamps in planning, and a great numbers of Contributors across the project.
In this talk, I’ll go through the steps we took to organise it, and I will also talk about Contributor Nights, special Meetup events where we concentrate on one of the Make teams and learn how to contribute from scratch.

November 1, 2016 — In September 2013 I launched a blog for Italian creative female entrepreneurs: I was chatting almost daily with a bunch of other freelancers and we thought it would have been cool to have a place to hangout online and tell our stories.
Three years later, C+B (Casa+Bottega) is a very popular niche blog in Italy, entirely made of volunteers, with more than 10 regular authors and 50 guest-posters.
In these 3 years we tried many different approaches to organize our team and our editorial calendar: in this talk I will take you behind the scenes of our blog and show you what we do to coordinate our efforts and keep our sanity!
July 2, 2016 — In 2015 a chain of encounters led a group of strangers to reorganize the WordPress Italian Community.

This is our story and we hope it can be your community’s story too.
