WordPress User Group Meetup


WordPress is an open source blog tool and publishing platform powered by PHP and MySQL. It’s often customized into a Content Management System (CMS). It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by over 14% of the 1,000,000 biggest websites.

WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system licensed under the GPLv2 (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product. By focusing on user experience and web standards they have created a tool different from anything else out there.

In Kenya, we have an active community of both developers, bloggers and designers who use WordPress on a day to day basis. For this reason, we decided that it would be good to start up a WordPress User Group. We will be having the second user group meeting on Tuesday the 26th of July 2011 starting 6pm.

The following topics will be discussed during the meet-up:

  • Website examples of WordPress being used as a CMS.
  • Guiding beginners on how to use WordPress as a CMS.
  • We will have someone from Sprint Interactive to give a talk on the same.
  • How to integrate with plugins & themes.

See you then..
