Upcoming: WordPress Davao & PHP Women Asia Combined Meetup

Let’s hangout this Wednesday and have a quick catch-up on recent happenings around our WordPress projects. Plus, April Kwong of PHP Women Asia, together with Kathy Dacanay, will be joining us bringing home invaluable insights on PHP—especially empowering women to code—in the Asia tech scene.

With our collaboration with PHP Women Asia for this meetup, we can’t stretch enough how we encourage women to attend our hangout next week 😉 but everyone is equally welcome as well!

Snacks and drinks will be served.

First time we will have a combined meetup and first time we’ll have it on a weekday, so don’t miss it! It’s going to be a great time together and a great way to wrap up our day! 🙂

For more info about the time and place, please visit our meetup.com event page.

Survey: What do you want to see change in the editor experience?

A project is underway to redesign the editing experience in /wp-admin/, and it could use your voice!.

Everyone has used the editor in /wp-admin/, yeah? Whether for your own site, training clients how to add content, or you’ve customized it beyond recognition — and WordPress core would like to hear what you love and hate about the entire experience.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey and help influence the future of your favorite CMS, WordPress.

Here’s the link to the survey:

Know someone else that has some thoughts on how we can make this better? Forward them the link! We’d love to hear from them, too!

PS. this is our chance to contribute back in our little way if WordPress has been part of some of the milestones we’ve had 

Thank you!


Upcoming: March 2017 WordPress Meetup

December 2016 Meetup Sidenote

I would just like to give a shoutout of big thanks to NOW Outsourcing Services and Prior Marketing for being our sponsors in the recently concluded meet-up! It’s our first time to receive support both from foreign and our very own local businesses ❤.

NOW (http://www.nowcandoit.com) is a local outsourcing agency that offers professional digital marketing to local and international clients. They are hiring, too!

Prior Marketing (https://priormarketing.com/) is a team of innovative marketing experts that specializes in Funnel Development and Infusionsoft Automation. They are based out of Reno, Nevada, USA — a very humbling experience that we even got support from the other side the world!

Companies like them are just testaments that any size of businesses and from any where in the world are with us in giving back to WordPress and helping the community grow by supporting groups such as ours. Their support will fuel us going forward.

We’re all in this WordPress project together.
WordCamp Europe 2016

I can’t wait to share how the recent meet-up went on the next blog post. In the meantime, enjoy the gloomy weather in Davao. 🌧

P.S We’re looking for sponsors (we encourage locals) for our future meet-ups. We’d like the community to get to know businesses that use WordPress and connect our members with them, as well as learn from their business. If you’d like to reach out or know a business that you can send our way — contact us through the form in our about page.

WordCamp Manila 2016

WordCamp1 is back again in the Philippines! The WordPress community in Manila organizes this year’s WordCamp Manila happening on December 10. I heard there’s only limited slots and a couple of us from WordPress Davao team will be attending for a day of learning and connecting with other WordPress users in the capital and possibly from all over the country.

1. WordCamp, in a few words, is a community-organized conference, yet informal, where WordPress technologies and users gather together and talk anything about WordPress. I’ll share next time more about WordCamp and how I battled my way to Singapore to give a talk in WordCamp Singapore 2016.

In the meantime, grab your tickets and kita-kits sa WordCamp Manila!
