For our May Summerville meetup we're doing lightning talks and celebrating WordPress - the WordPress 15th anniversary will be on May 27, 2018 and everyone is celebrating in the month of May! #wp15

For those not familiar, a "lightning talk" is a talk delivered in about 5-10 minutes followed by a short Q+A. Instead of one speaker presenting, we will have several speakers each presenting for a shorter time. We currently have 2 scheduled talks but are open to last-minute submissions! If you're interested, please submit a message to the organizers with a brief bio and talk description. You can also email [masked].

We plan to keep things casual and fun and also use the meetup as a chance to catch up and celebrate WordPress' 15th anniversary together! We'll have pizza, soda and a dessert! Our meetup is also generously sponsored by SiteGround who has given us some great swag to share with everyone!

CURRENT SCHEDULE (flexible as always!):

6:15 - 6:35: Arrivals, mingle/chat, food

The library graciously offers their meeting room free of charge, but asks that everyone exit the room by 7:45pm. If you wish to continue your conversations with other members, there is an Applebee's and Waffle House next door =) Also, please keep voices down when exiting - thanks!


If you'd be interested in giving a full-length talk about a topic related to WordPress at one of our future meetups, we'd love to hear from you! You can find out more info and fill out a speaker application on our site:
