Details

We are really sorry to announce that, due to ill health, we have had to postpone our planned session on Mental Health, Freelancing and the WordPress community. We aim to reschedule this important topic for later in the year.

If you were coming along looking for assistance or information about local organisations dealing with mental health and work we'd like to suggest you visit the local branch of the Richmond Fellowship which can be found here:

https://www.richmondfellowship.org.uk/cambridgeshire/cambridgeshire-employment-service/

To replace the cancelled talk we have a very topical evening - an intro to Gutenberg, the new WordPress editor. We will have a few short/lightning talks by members of our groups from a variety of perspectives: coder, beginner and all sorts in between.

If you've got a question bring it along. We will do our best to give you an answer on the night.

We have a brief set of links on our blog post about Gutenberg from December: https://wpcbg.uk/gutenberg-new-way-to-edit-wordpress/
Many people have since decided that Gutenberg is now debugged enough to use on a live site and are building up experience they are happy to share with others.

So come along - share what you know, listen to what others have found out and ask (or answer!) some questions!

This meeting is sponsored by Twin Dots (http://www.twindots.com/) the leading branding, design and development agency in Newmarket. Twin Dots has clients like Cambridge Marketing College, 450 GSM, Racing Welfare, and Devam the jewellers.

18:45: Roll up for a couple of beers in the foyer, & chat, mingle etc.

19:15 start: Everyone introduces themselves: 20 seconds max, mainly describing their involvement with WordPress.

2. Up to 3 * 3 minute pitches. Share discoveries, useful tips, requests for help with charitable projects.
