Event Details

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 :-)
