WordUp Pompey!’s first meeting was held 6 years ago today in Old Portsmouth.
The WordPress meetups themselves lasted just under a year, but the website has remained.
- I’d like to restart a WordPress meetup for Portsmouth, South Hampshire, West Sussex or wherever.
- Somewhere nearer than Brighton, Bournemouth and London
- But I don’t really want to do it on my own.
- Is there anyone out there who is willing to help, or even take the lead?
- And are there people who are interested anyway?
- If so, contact me via this website or the UK WP Community Slack #meetup-organisers channel
