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.

  • Join us for a social get-together to mark the end of a great year for the WordPress Glasgow meetup.

    It'll be a nice evening with our fellow Glasgow WordPressers!

    We'll book a table by the end of this week, when we have a rough idea of numbers...

  • * WordPress Helpdesk *

    If you have a WordPress site and you've got a bug or there is something you are not quite sure how to do, come and meet the WordPress professionals who may be able to help you or point you in the right direction.

    Given that WordPress 5.0 is likely to have been released before the end of 2018, there will be a special focus on working on Gutenberg-related queries.

    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.

    Please note that the organising team expects all advice to be given for free and in good faith but, if something is too big to fix there and then the WordPress professional will have the right to say so.

    * Networking *

    A meeting point for WordPress developers and web designers looking for their next project or collaboration and for people who have a project and would like to meet a WordPress professional.

  • This coming February 2019, various WordPress meetups throughout the UK are organising events to help raise awareness of mental health and related issues within the community.

    The WordPress Glasgow meetup has joined the initiative and, although we don't have precise details of what the event will look like yet, we are currently thinking it will be something in the lines of a talk, a round table and/or open discussion.

    We will keep you updated!

    In the meantime, please get in touch at [masked] if you would like to propose any ideas or get involved in organising this event.

    Also, please check out the WP&UP (wpandup.org) and the Geek Mental Health Week (geekmentalhelp.com) websites for related information.

  • Do you want to set your website project up for success? Do you want to avoid any costly surprises along the way?

    Of course, you do.

    A thorough, focused web specification document will keep your web project running smoothly and, most importantly, will give you the best to chance of delivering a project that meets the goals of your visitors and your business.

    In this talk, Mark will outline the key parts of an effective website specification and why they’re important.

    This talk is inspired by Mark's most successful blog post: highrise.digital
