WordPress 3.6 + Speeding Up WordPress + Launching WP University

Join us for an afternoon of WordPress at the Ryerson Digital Media Zone, courtesy of Toronto-based WordPress startup WP University.

June's WordPress meetup will focus on three things:

- Reviewing what's new in WordPress 3.6
- Discussing methods to make your WordPress site load faster
- Celebrating the launch of the new WPUniversity.com

Space at the Ryerson Digital Media Zone in downtown Toronto comes courtesy of the WP University team. Sign up for the beta if you haven't already!

For those wanting to hang out and chat after the meetup, there are a number of great spots in the area (including patios, weather permitting).

See you on Saturday, June 1st @ 1:00pm!

A message from WPUniversity:

Hi everyone,

Bart and I are honoured and excited to be hosting the June 1st meetup at our offices inside the Ryerson Digital Media Zone. We're especially stoked to be launching the new WPUniversity.com and showing off the next iteration of the WPUniversity Plugin BETA in front of the WP Toronto community.

WPUniversity puts a WordPress expert right at your fingertips with guided, interactive and REAL-TIME help and learning from inside your WordPress dashboard. Sound interesting? Come check it out!

Oh and every attendee will receive a free 1 year, single-site license for the plugin when we launch our market ready version. All you have to do is show up and sign in.

See you on the 1st!

Ben Fox
Co-Founder, WPUniversity

    Hi all, we're only 36 hours (give or take) away from the event and it looks like we're going to have a packed house! If there is anyone that has RSVP'd YES but knows for sure they can't make it, please change it to NO so we can get an accurate count. Thanks and see you all on Saturday!

    Can anyone recommend a cheap place to park in the area? Last time I was there I picked the most expensive lot in a haste but remember seeing some cheaper ones around afterwards. Just cant remember where exactly.

    May 27, 2013

    • Bart D.

      Mario, there is parking under dunas square I think it's green P

    The countdown is on and we're putting the final touches on the new site along with all the presentation materials. Very exciting!

    For those of you on the waiting list, don't fret just yet. We are working on opening up 20 more spots, just need to find the chairs.

    Is there a cost to attend?, and do we need a laptop?

    May 17, 2013

    I'm always interested in attending Meetups for this, but weekends usually don't work for me. I'm wondering if anyone else is in the same boat and would be interested in a session during the week?

    May 17, 2013

    • Andy M.

      Hi Teresa! We've heard this from a few folks, and we're definitely looking into starting up some weekday meetups in the coming month(s).
