New meetup format trial –

In case you missed it, the WordPress community team recently launched the Learn WordPress site­, as a way for the community to support meetups and other WordPress related events.

The idea here is that as a meetup group, you can watch a workshop video, and then host a group discussion at a time that suits everyone, to discuss the workshop content

The workshop planned for our WordPress Cape Town August meetup event, Intro to Gutenberg Block Development, is one of the first workshops to be hosted on this new platform.

Why is this important? Well, we’d like to invite you to take part in the process, and send us your feedback. When you have some time, between now and next Thursday, watch the workshop and then join us for the discussion group event.

If you can’t make it for that time, please feel free to send in your questions. If possible, we will include them in the discussion group. We plan to record the discussion group session, and post it to as well as our YouTube page, for later viewing.

If this process works well, then we can pick from the other videos on, and follow the same process.

We look forward to seeing how this content can be used to help our meetup host regular online events. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send them to this WordPress Cape Town Meetup discussion board.
