🗣️ WordPress To Gatsby with Jack Pritchard

WordPress To Gatsby is a super simple walkthrough tutorial inspired presentation showing the basics of how you can get a truly bespoke developer experience that gives your clients creative control whilst making use of the latest and greatest frameworks and tools available to us developers.

I'll be showing how I've hacked together some of the bleeding-edge WordPress plugins with React frameworks to serve static HTML files to your end user.

In this information-packed presentation, we are going to cover -

The Chocolate Box is situated at 8-10 Christchurch Road. It’s the building that once had NatWest bank on the ground floor and is opposite the Gala Bingo building.

When you arrive, please use the large entrance on the right of the building which has the words “The Chocolate Box 8-10” written above it and an electric vehicle charging point outside.

Press number 15 on the keypad and you will be let in. We’ll put up signs directing you to the location of the meetup. It will be on the 1st floor.

The building is 100% accessible with a ramp to the main entrance and lifts to all floors.

🚗 Parking

There are free car parking spaces directly outside the building. The signs say that you can only park for 30 minutes but that's only until 7pm so if you arrive after 6.30 then you should be good!

Alternatively, there are often spaces along Gervis or Meyrick Road.

There are also various pay and displays in the area, the closest being Cotlands Road:

Please do not park in the multistorey car park next to the Chocolate Box. All the spaces are reserved and you may be clamped.
