  • We’re delighted to confirm the date for the next Scotland VMUG and it’ll be in Glasgow on Thursday April 26th.

    Iain is always trying to convince me that Glasgow’s miles better, he’s obviously wrong. However on this occasion he has managed to find a fantastic venue for April. University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre; a venue that’s valid in both stature and purpose.

    The directions i’ve been given are; it’s a 3 minute walk from Queen Street station, assuming that’s based on Iain and James’ little legs so only 90 seconds or so for Sandy and I.
    More details on the venue are here; www.strath.ac.uk

    We’re working really hard to finalise speakers and sponsors, needless to say it’s going to be a cracking lineup and we’ll publish all details as soon as we can. As per always we’re looking for anyone community who’d like to participate in someway, please just contact one of the leaders and we can have a c...

  • This event is suitable for ALL SKILL LEVELS.

    WordPress is nothing without the numerous amounts of contributions that have made it into the CMS that it is today. When someone tells you that anyone can contribute to WordPress you may not believe them.

    In this talk Jenny will discuss how every contribution counts, and explain the different ways non-developers can start contributing back to the open source project we all love so much.
