Supporting WordPress Bulawayo Meetups
We are excited to be joining a growing WordPress Bulawayo Meetups community. Meetups are an opportunity for people who love and value WordPress to get together to learn from, and connect with each other. Regardless of whether you want to learn about WordPress or meet others who work with it, Meetup events are a way to build a strong community.
Our primary goal is to build a strong software development community. Consequently, it is to address the skills gap in Software development in Bulawayo. In the long term we hope to see our work we result in a better software environment in the country. Bulawayo Meetups give us a platform to do this and to work with organisations that share the same vision like Zimcode, The Techvillage, GoDigital and Neon
The meetups affords an opportunity for people of all technical levels to discuss WordPress related issues. Everything from blogging to more technical issues such as developing Plugins.
We are particularly excited about do_action events. The Community will be using WordPress to uplift Bulawayo’s charitable organisations using some of the knowledge and conversations we will have at these meetups.
do_action hackathons are community-organised events that are focussed on using WordPress to give deserving charitable organisations their own online presence. Each do_action event includes participants from the local community coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local organisations in one day.
Especially relevant to us is hosting WordPress Hackathons in the near future and interacting with Bulawayo Developers. We look forward to meeting more Bulawayo developers at such events.
Join the WordPress Community.
Community members may host their own events with the assistance of other individuals and organisations in the community. Every thing from a Blogger’s meetup to a do_action event. Reach out to the Techvillage if you would like to host your own event.
If you would like news and updates meetups you can follow the TechVillage on social media. In addition, we will also be sharing regular updates on events on our social media pages.
