    Thank you everyone who was there yesterday! It was great to see such a big bunch of active professionals there.

    We'll start to plan the next event soon, but until then here's the place to suggest topics:

    Also, the food of the first event was sponsored by Frantic, huge thanks for that!

    If someone knows some possible food/venue sponsors for our future events, you can send suggestions to us organizers.

    Very Good indeed! Some improvements regarding the meetup place would be good. Overall, nice atmosphere, nice people with good technical background. Best wishes for the next meetup. Regarding the contents, I would suggest, Technical as well as Sales stories, How WordPress has contributed to the projects you were working on? How it made your work more easier and fun to work with? More stuff, on How things can be improved? We can make suggestions lists, where one can comment? It would be a good idea to develop one such website, which hosts our activities and innovative ideas related to Wordpress. For Starters in Wordpress, we can help them by giving feedback on their work. Many more suggestions, but I don't want to make you feel tired up! :)

      Hi Tayyab! Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate it all and will soon go through the things you listed.

      For suggestions, there is a discussion board already in our meetup group, and there is one thread for suggestions. Here it is:­

    Hello, Will the event be in Finnish or in English? I am planning to come to the event. Kindly let me know if the event is going to be in English? I would like to introduce my company, We are specialized in Web Software Development. We want partners in Finland, who want to subcontract their Web development work in Finland.

      Hi Tayyab, welcome to the group! The main language for the events is English, however people are allowed to communicate in Finnish as well. Especially in these kind of informal meetups where we don't have any talks and it's more about discussing and getting to know each other, some might be more comfortable talking in Finnish.

      What comes to introducing your company: It is ok to mention your company shortly and ask interested people to contact you for more info later on. This group is for the WordPress community benefit only, so it is not the place for longer company presentations or any other content that is for the benefit of a separate company or organization.

    Eikö varmasti ole edes parinsadan euron hintaista osallistumismaksua tuohon miitingiin?

      Pyritään pitämään nämä meetupit ihan ilmaisina, mutta toki tapaamispaikkoja voi aina tukea osatamalla esim. kahvin sisääntullessa :) Tervetuloa!

    Suhtaudun tällaisiin ensialkuun aina hieman varauksellisesti. Mutta idea on kertakaikkiaan mahtava + kannatettava!

    July 30, 2015

    • Sonja J.

      Hienoa että tuut mukaan. Jos sinulla on jotain toiveita tai ideoita tämän yhteisön suhteen, niin niitä otetaan avosylin vastaan täällä tai vaikka siellä ensimmäisessä tapaamisessa. Nähdään siellä!
