The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring people together of all skill levels, from beginners to WordPress professionals. WordPress Helsinki is purely organised by community volunteers, and operates under the WordPress code of conduct.
In our first meetup of 2020, we will continue with the basics of WordPress development. This time with an introduction to plugin creation with Marco Martins
“We all use plugins made by someone else, but have you ever created your own plugin? In this talk I'll explain how to build a simple WordPress plugin and when you should do so.”
Please note that the meetup date has moved to the 8th of January because the first Wednesday of the month is New Year's day.
17:15 – Doors open
17:30 – Opening words
17:40 – Presentation: Create Your First Plugin
19:00 – Drinks & networking at Nordcloud
19:30 – Drinks at a nearby bar
This session will be in English.
Drinks & snacks will be kindly sponsored by Evermade (https://www.evermade.fi/).
As always, if you can’t make it earlier or just want to sit down for a chat, you’re more than welcome to join us after the talk for drinks.
