September WordPress Birmingham Meetup


Join us for our regular WordPress meetup with goodies for everyone from new users to experienced developers. We welcome WordPress users of ALL levels, so come along and find out what's going on in your local UK WordPress and wider global community!

The meetup starts at 6pm, speakers start at 6.30. Expect a decent coffee, possibly some small nibbles, great company and plenty of learning! Although we finish at the venue at 8.30, we usually carry on for a drink and good discussion after!

We have now confirmed a venue for the meetup (whoop!) and are trialling a new place called Tilt to see how we get on with it (a bonus is that they have a bunch of pinball tables there to play after the meetup - you may have guessed something like that from the name!!) The owner has been very welcoming to us, so we will see how it goes!

Tilt is around 5 minutes walk from New Street station right in the heart of the city - you can drop by their website over at or their Twitter feed is over at

After the success of previous months, we are re-instating the Lean Coffee discussion. This usually runs for about 30 minutes; bring your ideas, questions or thoughts, and we'll group discuss them for 3 minutes (with optional final extension of 3 minutes!)

We'll also have Rachel McCollin speaking on 'Everything You Need to Know About WordPress Multisite'. Her talk will explain what Multisite is, describe how you can use it for your own and your client sites and debunk some myths. Rachel is a Multisite expert and writes regularly for the wpmu dev blog ( on the subject.
