The WordPress Cambridge Meetup is a monthly get together for developers and users of WordPress, held at The Boathouse usually on the second, or third Monday of the month.
You can usually expect to see 2-3 talks and an open Q&A session, followed by drinks in the pub.
Find out more about WordPress, whether you’re trying to decide if you should use it, or if you’re an expert that wants to keep on top of the latest features, or anywhere in between – everyone is welcome.
So come along to see how WordPress can benefit your organisation, and get specific advise on any WordPress questions you may have.
If you’re interested in coming along, please let us know at our Meetup page.
