wpcebu-2

Less than a month after their maiden #WordPressWednesday gathering, Cebu WordPress Meetup will launch its first #WordPressWeekend this coming March 24, Saturday at A SPACE Cebu.

“The change in schedule, from a weekday to a weekend, will hopefully allow more WordPress developers, designers, and bloggers to join this time,” said Rome Nicolas, one of the #WPCebu organizers.

“We realized that we are a diverse group that’s why this Saturday, we will have two tracks – one for bloggers and one for developers,” he added.

Dorell James, an established WordPress plugin publisher, will talk about  “How to Create and Submit a WordPress Plugin.

Only 20 slots are opened for each track. To register, Cebu WordPress Meetup can be reached through Meetup. Updates are published at wpcebu.wordpress.com.

 

Cebu WordPress Meetup’s #WordPressWednesday: Hello Cebu!

hello-cebu

Thank you for joining us in our first ever #WordPressWednesday meetup, Cebu!

It was a short but meaningful meetup that gathered about 50 local WordPress enthusiasts  – from bloggers to developers and from business owners to company managers.

We also had a short panel interview with these awesome WordPress users: Jacque Belhida-Doring, founder of Cebu Digital Link; Sebastian Thoss, a German entrepreneur/developer visiting the city; Rome Nicolas, our fellow organizer and founder of Cebu Content Creators; and Eugene Alegiojo, a developer from Beaver Builder.

We spent an hour discussing what has improved in WordPress and how we can take advantage of the platform to improve our individual careers. At the end of the event, we networked with fellow attendees and made new connections for future meetups.

We are looking forward to doing more events and activities with the community in the coming months, Cebu.
