A warm welcome to Bristol WordPress People

We are a group of over 700 members who get together to connect about all things WordPress.

Our events are free, friendly and very casual. If you are looking to network or learn about WordPress then we’d love to meet you.

We are proud of the diversity of our group and welcome everyone whatever your level of experience with WordPress. With around 50 people at each event, you are bound to find someone in the same boat as you!

Why not come along on the first Tuesday of the month to meet us at the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer in Bristol?

 

Event format

Our events usually feature two talks from our group members or guest speakers, who share new ideas, personal stories and expert tips. Occasionally we run other events such as lightning talks, Q&A sessions or support nights.

There’s always plenty of time before, after and in between the talks to meet new people or catch up with existing contacts and friends.

 

Our talk topics are diverse

The range of talks each month reflects the diversity of our group, and we cater for WordPress experts and beginners alike. We aim to keep things fresh by looking at WordPress from different perspectives. This includes the most prominent topics of development, design and blogging, but also draws on areas such as business, UX and accessibility, digital tools and frameworks, coding techniques, social media and personal stories from our community.

Some of the best talks from our group have been stories of how people, businesses and brands have grown and reached success, largely because of what we are able to do with WordPress. We welcome everyone within our community to give a talk if they would like to – talk to our team for more information.

 

Are you a complete beginner?

For those who want to know more about WordPress but are still on the starting blocks, we recognise that coming to a meet-up may be a daunting place to start.

After feedback from our members, we have teamed up with our sponsor DevelopMe, to offer a comprehesive one-day workshop on getting started with WordPress. Our co-organiser Hannah spends a day walking attendees through the basics so you can get your own site up and running pronto! The next course date in 2018 is Sat 24th Nov.
