    WWDC Keynote Viewing Event – 4th June

    It's WWDC Keynote time again! Let's get together, watch the keynote, discuss the new technologies, and shift awkwardly in our seats as our bums get numb while Eddy Cue drones on about Apple Music stuff as we wait in case there's "One More Thing..."

    WordPress Belfast Monthly Meetup – 6th June

    What just happened?
    A quick over-view of what happened at WordCamp Belfast.

    Making a site mobile friendly. How to test if your site is usable, and how good it is on mobile devices.

    General WP Chat & WorkShop
    If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, Then pop along and lets chat about it.

    Or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to.
    The idea is that people of all levels of ability can join in, collaborate, and discuss and/or show aspects of WordPress that are of interest.

    This informal get-together is also ideal for anyone who is new to WordPress and looking to find out more. Hear other people share their knowledge and experience, such as:

    - how to know if my WP site is successful?
    - does security really affect my site?
    - tips on making my content (more) engaging
    - recommendations on plugins , SEO, accessability
    - and much more ...

    Please note that whilst this meetup is free to attend, it cannot provide consultancy or tailored training. Despite saying that, we would hope to at least give you a 'steer' in the right direction or an independent opinion on approaches for your WP site. Remember to please bring a laptop or tablet for best results.

    So do you want us to help you get more out of your WordPress site? Then come along and make your WordPress site (even) better!
