The first WordPress Liverpool Meetup (https://wpliverpool.org). This is an opportunity to come together and shape the future of these events.
We will be holding an informal meetup for WordPress developers, designers, users and business owner to speak out and let us know what you want from your local WordPress meetup.
We will be meeting the first Thursday of every month. The format will consist of speakers, open discussion, round tables, lightning talks and your ideas.
The event will be influenced by our experiences and feedback we've received over the years of organising the WordPress London Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/London-WordPress/).
