Wordpress Glasgow

Wordpress Glasgow meets every 4th Tuesday and every 2nd Thursday of each month in the city centre. Everyone is welcome: designers, developers and users of WordPress, with all levels of experience.

  • This January, the WordPress Community Workshop will include the option to learn Gutenberg, the new WordPress editor estimated to be released in April 2018.

    Gutenberg will mean a big change to the way we write posts and pages and, in a future release, it is expected to make page builders redundant. With this new section, we aim to help you learn the ins and outs of the new editor before it comes out!

    The usual WordPress Community Workshop will also run as usual. Here is what it is about:

    If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to. The idea is that people of all levels of ability can come along, collaborate, and discuss and/or show those aspects of WordPress that are of interest.

  • This event is organised in collaboration with 8 other tech meetups from Glasgow and surrounding area. Because of this, the number of spaces available is limited to only 6.

    About the Presentation:

    The presentation will last about 2.5 hours and will give an overview of the following topics:

    * Introduction and overview;
    * Training Needs Analysis (TNA);
    * Setting Aims and Objectives;
    * Questioning skills;
    * Presentation techniques;
    * Finalising the presentation.

    This will provide a very broad overview of presenting and training and should be enough to provide a framework for future presenters.
    Having a frame to build on helps to structure the presentation and provides confidence to the presenter. The timeframe does not allow for anything detailed.

  • This is an event suitable for ALL LEVELS.

    Doors open at 6:00pm to give everyone time to come in and chat to each other. Talk starts at 6:30pm.

    * About the Talk:

    WordPress is known for pre-made themes that make it easy to get started. However, after a while you might wonder why certain design decisions have been made, how they affect your users, and what you can do to make the site better.

    This is where User Experience (UX) design techniques come in. UX is way of bringing together user needs and business goals through research, testing, and design.

    This talk will introduce the concept of UX and provide practical tips for improving your site.
