WordPress 10th Anniversary Social

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the very first WordPress release in 2003! Join us for our first social of the year at Elephant and Castle downtown. This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow Vancouver WordPress Meetup members and celebrate WordPress' 10th birthday with others all around the world who will also be hosting parties on May 27th.

EVENT DETAILS

  • There is no cover
  • Purchase your own food and drink as you like
  • All are welcome!

PLEASE RSVP ON OUR MEETUP PAGE!

You can view the global meetups who will also be celebrating WordPress' anniversary on May 27th here: http://www.meetup.com/WordPress/

Our Meetup details for the event are here: http://www.meetup.com/WordPress/Vancouver-CA/922712/ However, please RSVP on the Vancouver Meetup page! (It is the official RSVP list)

There is a lack of parking at the location. I would highly suggest you take transit to the Burrard Street SkyTrain Station and then walk south two blocks until you reach the art deco styled Marine Building.

See the Google Maps link below for directions to pub from the Skytrain as well.

    Excellent - a fun event at a decent venue and great to get to talk to the other group members outside the constraints of a presentation.

    Yes it was a great time and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with folks. I agree Robert, great decor though it took me a while to figure out all the "M"s on the balloons. :)

    Can't believe it's been 10 years already

    May 17, 2013

  • David D.

    Has it been 10 years? 2003 was the year the US attacked Iraq. Paul Martin became prime minister, and the New Jersey Devils won the Stanley Cup. Perhaps we should celebrate in a special way for Wordpress. Come dressed as your favourite WP theme? Or perhaps bring a printed copy of your best post and we'll put all on a big backdrop and take a pic?
