If you have an existing wordpress.com site did you know you could have more freedom by managing the installation yourself? If you'd like to move away from wordpress.com to grow your site then tonight will be focused on this transition.
The meetup will also be useful for anyone who manages their own installation of WordPress and would like to discuss performance, security or just level-up their WordPress website.
Doors open. Chat to other WordPressers with free beers and soft drinks, sponsored by Campus North.
