September's meetup in the new venue, with the new format was a success! A great talk was followed by some interesting discussions. October is the same again, this time with a talk from Michael Heap.

WordPress as a 12 Factor App

Love it or hate it, WordPress is here to stay. Powering over 25% of the web, it’s one of the most commonly used projects out there.

WordPress strive to make life easy for their end users first and foremost, but what if I told you that with less than an hour’s work you could make it a joy to work with for developers too?

By following the Twelve Factor App method ( ) we can deploy WordPress in a way that makes it easy to develop for, easy to update, and easy to maintain. Come and watch as we take a standard WordPress install and bring it into the future.

Presented by Michael Heap ( - A software engineer living near London, England. You'll usually find him working with PHP, Go and Ansible.

The event starts at 6.30pm and the talk will start at 7pm.
