The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring together people of all skill levels, from beginners to people who work with WordPress on a daily basis.

Our last talks before our July summer-break will feature two developers from SC5 ( Arto Liukkonen will talk about how to build a modern React web app using the new REST API and Niklas Lindgren will give a short talk about the wonderful world of the WP Settings API.

As you can probably guess, this will be a developer-oriented session but do join us even if the topics might go a little over your head. There will be plenty of time for discussions before and after the talks!
