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.
It was first released on May 27, 2003, by Matt Mullenweg as a fork of b2/cafelog. As of February 2011, version 3.0 had been downloaded over 32.5 million times.
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 first user group meeting on Tuesday the 12th of July 2011 starting 6pm.
We will discuss the below topics during the meet-ups:
1. WordPress as a CMS
2. WordPress.com as a blogging platform
3. Self Hosted Blogs
4. Developing for WordPress – Plugins, Themes etc
5. WordCamp Kenya 2011
6. Creating the WordPress User Groups. Mailing lists for Devs/Designers/Bloggers
Hope to see you there
