Welcome to WordUp Pompey! for December 2018. This month it’s Lean Coffee and Lightning Talks
34SP are our new sponsors. I’ve been given a load of cash to spend on refreshments. https://www.34sp.com/wordpress-sponsorship
Lean Coffee - A bit like our earlier clinics Lightning talks – a lot shorter than main talk. Expect them to be shorter than the main talk’s overrun.
Summary of the WordPress Portsmouth Meetups in 2018 and the Meetup membership. Note: Not sure what happens when a member leaves the meetup group.
WordPress 5.0 was released on 6th December 2018.
Since then releases have been coming along like London Buses.
Lots of releases planned.
4th Tuesday of every month
Speakers to be completed.
Thanks again to everyone for coming this year. To our organisers: Herb, Drew and Abha. To Scott and redIT for the venue and backup laptop. To 34SP for their sponsorship To oik-plugins / bobbing wide for previous sponsorship To the attendees To the dormant WordPressers who have joined the meetup but not yet attended one.
