WordPress will be 15th years old this May 27th, 2018!

On Sunday, May 27th, we're planning a global event celebrating the WordPress 15th Anniversary with WordPress community groups around the world.

You are invited! We'll meet at the address listed on this event to enjoy some refreshments (and maybe even a WordPress birthday cake) and celebrate 15 years of WordPress. We'll be sharing our party photos and love for WordPress with the rest of the world via the hashtag #wp15.

We'll start by introducing what is WordPress and how strong this CMS is. Basically, WordPress is open source software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app. 29% of the web uses WordPress, from hobby blogs to the biggest news sites online. Discover how you can use WordPress to create limitless possibilities.

Then following this, there will be a brief introduction to Gutenberg - the new content editor for WordPress.

Gutenberg is the new content editor included in WordPress 5.0. This meetup is designed for any WordPress user who wants to learn more about the editor, how it will affect their website, and discuss the future of WordPress.

For theme and plugin developers, we will discuss how Gutenberg will affect your workflow, helping clients transition, and what technologies you should be learning now to extend WordPress in the future.

Don't forget to spread the word, let's make this WordPress birthday memorable :)
