WordPress London Meetup – April 2018

26-Apr-2018

18:30

This month we’re looking at what it takes to organise a WordCamp, events that are held by and for the WordPress community. We’ll also be taking a look at the WP-CLI and how you can manage sites, plugins and themes via the command line.

**NEW PODCAST & VENUE**

#WPLDN has a new Podcast. Hear from this month’s speakers and find out more about what to expect at the event: https://www.wpldn.uk/podcast/1-organising-a-wordcamp-an-intro-to-wp-cli

We’re in our new venue again this month. Yes, the WordPress London Meetup has moved to a new home. We’re pleased to be partnering with Cloudflare and using their meeting space for #WPLDN events. This is the building you’ll be looking for: https://goo.gl/maps/tjttZSvgnKt There will be a slightly lower number of space available for attendees, so if for whatever reason you can’t join us, please do free up your space.

Organisers

Annabelle Woodger

Annabelle is a relative newcomer to the WordPress community, but since discovering how welcoming it is, she hasn’t looked back!  She originally began translating WordPress into en_GB back in September 2016, quickly demonstrating her abilities and impressing the existing GTE team, becoming a General Translation Editor that same month.

A huge language nerd, she is currently learning Japanese (having passed the JLPT N5 in Dec 2016, now working towards N4 for Dec 2017), and reading as much as she can on linguistics and poetry. When not doing language-based activities, you can find her doing photography, being passionate about disability rights, and babbling excitedly about unicorns on Twitter.

Dan Maby

Dan is a director at blue 37. He thrives on business development and project management, as well as having a passion for productivity & marketing.  He’s the founder of WP&UP, a charity supporting the WordPress community’s mental, physical, business and code health.   You’ll also find him organising WordPress focused events including #wpldn#wpEssex & #wpSuffolk.
