πŸ“£ Show & Tell
Show your project! It’s interesting to see what you’ve worked on, created and built with WordPress.

Whether it’s a site, plugin or theme, this is an opportunity for you to show your work to the group. It doesn’t have to be anything formal, just talk through what you’ve done. Bring a laptop, or use one of ours.

πŸ€” How do roundtables work?

The room is divided into different tables or groups, each with a different topic. While the topics will be decided on the night, in the past we’ve discussed:
– Security
– Performance
– General questions/site issues
– Development and code
– Design

Pick a table and get involved with the discussion. Move tables, meet people; it’s a great time for finding answers and networking. There is something for everyone, be it your first time using WordPress to a seasoned developer.

If you have a specific site problem you would like help with, don’t forget to bring your laptop!

πŸ“£ Why not speak at a future event?

We are always looking for people to come and speak at our events. So if you have an idea for a talk, a discussion or just want to show folks what you have been working on, please get in touch. You don’t need to be a professional speaker or even to have spoken in a group before.

❓Request a talk

If you don’t want to do a talk, but are interested in hearing about a specific subject, or have an idea/problem, please get in touch and we will try and find someone who can help.
