On February 16th, at The Lodge Coworking Space we took the first step towards creating the WordPress community of Stara Zagora!
On a special evening dedicated to the most used content management system in the world, we managed to gather various WP enthusiasts not only from the city, but also from Sofia, Plovdiv, Kazanlak and Dimitrovgrad.
The guest lecturer at the event was Nikolay Krastev, who is closely related to the platform – he supports the community with organizing events, translations of core, themes and extensions and more.
The topic he presented was “Everything about WordPress – history, community, ecosystem, opportunities and ways to contribute”. He talked about the history of WordPress from the birth of the platform to the present day, as well as about the ecosystem behind it. Nicky also shared what the possibilities to contribute to the development of the open source platform are and at the same time outlined what is ahead of us in the future.
After the lecture we had a discussion about specific projects and businesses.
Our friends from SuperHosting.BG were partners of the event again and contributed a lot to the pleasant atmosphere after the meeting.
It turned out to be a really great event, which we hope is just the beginning of many more upcoming Meetups.
If you are interested in WordPress or have friends who want to become part of the community – follow us on social networks and stay tuned for upcoming events of the local WordPress community.
