The WordPress Portsmouth Meetup group are looking for speakers for January 2020 onwards. If you have a WordPress related talk that you feel would be of interest to our members please contact one of the organisers by whichever means you choose: Slack, Twitter, Meetup, Email.
Our meetings in the past 12 months have been as follows
In 2020 we want to significantly grow the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup group’s membership. We want to double the number of members; from 130 to 260.
Starting in November (2019) we’ll be writing to local WordPress agencies to:
let you know we exist
invite you to our meetups
invite you to get involved in the local WordPress community
If you’re part of a WordPress agency, and we haven’t written to you, and some or all of your team are interested in finding out more about the local WordPress community, then please join the Meetup group and get in touch.
And we want to increase the average attendance at our meetups
This month Graham Armfield, from Coolfields Consulting, is going to take us through a very informative presentation on accessibility. That’s something that you should be doing when you develop a client’s website. Or as Graham puts it.
It makes sense to treat accessibility as a website requirement – even if your client doesn’t specifically ask for it.
