Interview With @Roelandp About Steem Fest!

in #steemfest4 years ago (edited)


In less than 3 weeks, the biggest yearly Steemit gathering will take place in Krakow, Poland. Steem Fest itself doesn't need much introduction. It is a 5-day event of conferences, city tours and a Steemit party!

So what’s the hype all about?

No other yearly Steem event is as massive and important as this one in terms of opportunities to network and getting to know other Steemians in the real world. Steemfest is is pretty much the only topic people talk about nowadays, and it comes to no surprise that the majority of bloggers on this platform wish to be a part of it.

Some have already attended the years prior in Lisbon and Amsterdam and rave about how Steemfest changed their life as bloggers thereafter, and others who joined Steemit more recently will be first timers at the Krakow event.

To help Steemians finance their trip, a multitude of contests and giveaways have been organized to win free tickets and help support those who need some help with their travel expenses. Steemians have been going out of their way to support each other financially, just so that as many people as possible can be part of the fun.

There is no one better in describing Steem fest than the organizer himself @roelandp. We got to sit down with him and we’ve learned how he came about the idea of organizing such a large Steemit gathering in the first place, the difficulties he has encountered, and what to expect this year. We have linked the interview below. We had fun in doing the interview and we it will help the people who are still thinking about going to make a choice.

(We apologize in advance for the sound quality there were problems with the internet connection)

  • If you haven’t purchased your ticket yet, there’s still time! Just go the Steemfest website and come join the fun in Krakow!

Noiceeee, learn a bit more about how SF's born and for by the one created it. I was able to listen but didn't do the whole entire thing. I really wish the audio was better. Thanks for this! You did a great job a an interviewer @evecab ! :)

thanks @waybeyondpadthai =) Glad you liked it, and sorry about the audio!

It is truly inspiring to listen and think about opportunities for permissionless innovation unleashed by open platforms, especially Steem. Closed social systems stifle innovation and creativity because they are focused on shareholder value. But open platforms allow anybody with a computer and some basic knowledge to try things, build things and share in the combined success of all these diverse initiatives.

@roelandp, thanks for all the increadible efforts in organizing SteemFest, allowing us to meet each other face to face!

Steem Fest definitely helps the innovation on Steemit!

Good guy.
