As always, we will also have our regular ‘WordPress Surgery’ for anyone with any WordPress related questions.

Regular 1st Wednesday of the month Meetup for WordPress users. Anyone with any experience of WordPress is welcome, whether you’ve heard about it and want to know more, or if you’re a WordPress developer and want to meet like-minded individuals. Come along and find out what's going on in your local UK WordPress and wider global community!

Beside WordPress talk, we will also talk about user experience (UX), Marketing, Analytics, CSS and a variety of other topics. So, if you are running a website / online shop / blog or want to create one, join the group and come along to discover how WordPress can benefit you or your website, and get specific advice on any WordPress questions you have.

Discussion 3: Contributing to WordPress
There are many ways anyone, no matter the skill level can contribute to WordPress. This includes everything from answering support questions, translating core, plugins and themes, right through to submitting code to core.
