  • This is the first of a new quarterly get-together for the WordPress Glasgow meetup.

    This new format has evolved from the popular Community Workshop we used to run before the summer break with some additions that we think will make it more sustainable for the organising team and of interest to a wider audience.

    If you are a WordPress professional and can spare a couple of hours every 3 months, come along to give some guidance to people who are learning or are stuck and need advice.

  • Bots, Burnout and Blame: Using technology to build better organisations
    Matthew Bellringer

    Free and Open to All. Refreshments at 1830, Talk at 1900.

    Synopsis ::
    In our working lives we have tools that would seem magical to employees a hundred years ago. The small computers we keep in our pockets connect us immediately to most of the combined knowledge of humanity. Our working conditions have improved immeasurably. We sit in air conditioned offices, no longer toiling in coal mines and factories. Despite this, levels of anxiety and depression amongst employees is at an all-time high. The unhealthy psychological environment which gives rise to this suffering leads to poor decision-making and organisational failure.

    This talk identifies the key personal and organisational factors which give rise to workplace stress, and what can be done about them. It highlights research which suggests that the most effective organisations are not the most stressful, and that high performance is...
