Details

🤩This is a hands-on evening of learning and growing your skills.

☀️Everyone is welcome at our Contribution Evening this April. If you haven't been before then this is especially for you! Have a look what's on offer:

🗣Presentation workshop - Putting your face and words out there gets you work and knowability. Tamsin will be providing some essential tips on how to make your talk content sing! Pencils at the ready; no laptops please! Great opportunity for anyone looking to speak at a WordUp or WordCamp.

🤓Beginners guide to Contributing to WordPress. Learn new skills and hone old ones. We'll look at how you can give back to the open-source project and how it can benefit your career. Want to learn more about marketing, Gutenberg, developing themes, building plugins or event organisation? This is a great chance to see the behind-the-scenes of WordPress.

🤩WordCamp Brighton is happening this summer! Join the organisers team and see how you can help. We've just booked the after-party and invited speakers to apply. Join the organisers to see what's next and how you can help.

🍕 All this will be fuelled by drinks and pizza courtesy of our lovely sponsors Pragmatic!
