Devise attended the WordPress meetup Dublin event last week and it was great to see the interest that people have in this great platform. It was held in Devitts pub in Camden street. The guest speakers included Ronan O’Leary of the web summit, Colm & Simon from MadeInContext and Neil Sisson from Lime Canvas.
They all had great insights to the developing world of WordPress. The guys from Made in Context discussed the pros and cons of selling WordPress themes in an ever saturated marketplace. They talked about ThemeForest and the process of getting your theme accepted. Neil from Lime canvas is one of the hosts and he talked more about the design topics and blogging nature of WordPress. Finally, Ronan, the self proclaimed geek talked about his experience in the web summit and his history with WordPress and the need to hack and explore to fully understand the platform.
The night was great because it gave people the opportunity to interact with people that have ‘been there and done that’ so to say. I think anyone that has an interest in using WordPress for a website should attend the next one. They will try and run an event every month in Devitt’s bar and you can join here at Dublin WordPress. We look forward to meeting you there 🙂
