Hello 2020!

Same WordUp, under new management.

This year we say thank you to Tom Ferry and Tom Chute who have been organising the WordUp’s in Brighton since 2018. Welcome to Jon Morgan-Jones, who will coordinating things this year (and anyone else who wants to volunteer…).

It’ll be on the same day each month (Last Monday of the month), same venue and at the same time. We may change the format for some of the events, but we’ll keep you posted and hope that you’ll feed back with what you’d like to see and feedback on what we’re doing.

This is very much an Open Source and community based meetup, so Jon is going to need help with:

  • Organising events
  • Finding speakers for the events
  • Suggestions for events, both in terms of content and format

WP-Brighton’s Slideshare reaches 1,000 views!

Hello. Well, it’s been a while. And, I know, the website needs updating.

No news yet on whether there’ll be a WP-Brighton 2012 – although do drop us a note in the comments if you like.

Just a quick note to say I got an email today to say that the WP-Brighton slideshare channel’s now had 1,000 views! http://www.slideshare.net/wpbrighton/

I know in the grand scheme of things that’s not all that many, but to the WP-Brighton team, it means something. We always wanted the event to reach further than the day itself and this is a nice validation of that.

Thanks for the views everyone 🙂 There’ll be news here about any future events as soon as there’s any news to tell. In the meantime, do head over to WordUp! Brighton and get involved there.

It’s aimed at businesspeople as well as digital professionals, with separate strands for both audiences. With the event drawing closer, I wanted to take the opportunity to reiterate why I think it’s going to be a great event, and why you should come along.
