    I really enjoyed the evening and it was a pleasure meeting Matt and other folks.

    What an amazing individual Matt is. I think everyone got a photo with him. We learned not just about the evolution of WordPress, but about the man himself and his journey. Incredible evening. Thanks again Jason for your help to get him here.

    Hi, I really enjoyed listening to Matt's story and how personable and friendly he is - he has inspired me as a Graphic Designer to learn more about WordPress towards developing fantastic websites with your groups guidance and help obviously ;)

    Thanks Lisa

    Thanks Kevin and Jason for the great evening with Matt.

    I clicked some photos and will share them with you all once they finish uploading to my OneDrive. They are still uploading and are only 80% done overnight.

    Awesome opportunity to shake the hand of Matt! Very informative night. Cool moment when that dude gave him a pounamu pendant and Matt got a crash course in Hongi.

    Is the venue still the Ray Freedman Arts Centre?

    June 17, 2014

    • Jason K.

      Hi Alison, I don't understand the question. All of the information says that and we haven't changed?

      June 18, 2014

    • Alison G.

      Probably a message ages ago saying the venue changed... Still coming out of holiday mode. Thanks for organising this Jason.

  • Jason K.

    Ticketing closes off at 5pm today. There may still be seats after that. This morning we were about 80% booked so about 40 seats to go - don't miss out

  • Ben R.

    The Grid/AKL could be a good spot to host it if you are looking for somewhere! New Innovation Hub in the Viaduct and I'm sure they would be receptive to this.

    May 19, 2014

    • Jason K.

      That was our first choice but it only opened last week and meeting rooms couldn't be guaranteed to be ready in time

    • Kevin T.

      We may look at Grid for future meetups and WordPress training events.
