Details

We'll be meeting as usual in August for more WordPress geekery and a full line-up of presentations. We welcome WordPress users of ALL levels, so come along and find out what's going on in your local WordPress and wider UK community!

You are welcome to join us from 6.15pm for a drink and chat, with the meetup formally starting at 6.45pm.

Talks

We have two speakers this month:

Rocío Valdivia (visiting all the way from Spain!) will be presenting an awesome introduction and quick start guide to BuddyPress - a well-established plugin that creates a social network platform within a WordPress install. For more info visit: http://rociovaldivia.es

Andrew Fielden will be talking about licensing on plugins (and themes) - do you really understand the implications of the GPL, Open Source license? Important for creators and users! For more info visit: http://ahead4.biz

Jonny will also be covering some of the upcoming WordPress and web conferences happening in the UK during 2015, along with Kirsty Burgoine, who will be giving a quick overview of the up-coming (R)Evolution conference. For more info visit http://2015.shropgeek-revolution.co.uk

Lean Coffee discussion

We will also be running our highly successful 'lean coffee' style group discussion again. Everyone has the opportunity to submit a discussion or idea - so if there's a question or idea around WordPress, web development or online related that's been on your mind, come and put it forward!

Sponsorship

We are currently looking for sponsors for our meetup, so please note that there is sadly no free drinks tab this month, sorry ;(
