WordPress Meetup Tokyo #18 - October 2014: Post-WordCamp Special!


Hello WordPress developers & users in Tokyo!

Next WordPress Meetup Tokyo event for English-speakers will be on Sunday, October 12th at coworking space "Co-Edo (https://www.facebook.com/CoWorkingSpaceKayabacho)" in Kayaba-cho.


Post-WordCamp Tokyo 2014 Special!

Meetup #18 will be a special edition. There is a WordCamp Tokyo 2014 on day before (October 11th), and we have asked their overseas guests/attendees to join us at the Meetup on next day, and give us a talk. Speakers and topics are to be confirmed, so we will keep you updated.

We now have a Pizza sponsor! Thanks to Universions (http://universions.com/), we have changed back to ¥1,000/person.
Universions is a version control web service which comes with test server for previewing html files and WordPress site.

As for the schedule, we are currently thinking something like this:

11:00 - Start
- Sessions
13:00 - Pizza Lunch sponsored by Universions (http://universions.com/). We'll order some pizzas for networking lunch
14:00 - Sessions
17:30 - End

*Other than the planned speakers, we will also have "Show & Tell" session as we usually do.

** We will head over to near by izakaya for food and drinks later (optional)
