A Wholesome Kickstart to 2024: CodeWalnut's First WordPress Experts Meetup in Bangalore

Hey there, WordPress experts and tech buffs!

Before we dive into the actual event backstory, let's have a brief look at why we conducted the WordPress Meetup for the community.

WordPress is not just a platform; it's a powerhouse that's driving a massive 43.1% of the web.

It's all about ease of use, flexibility, and the ability to scale from a personal project to a global enterprise.

Big names like Sony Music, Time Magazine, NASA, Spotify, and IBM have all used WordPress to build their sites. It’s clear that WordPress is more than a tool—it's a community builder.

And that's exactly why we gathered in Bangalore: to connect, share, and grow with fellow WordPress experts in a laid-back, engaging, and totally geeky way.

How It All Started 🌱

So, let's kick things off by sharing a little backstory. We had this idea to stir up the tech scene in Bangalore.

We thought, "Why not build a community where folks who dig WordPress and tech can get together?"

We wanted to create a chill spot where anyone, be it a newbie or a pro, could share, learn, and just geek out over tech stuff.

That’s how we decided to throw our very own WordPress meetup.

It was all about getting the local WordPress and tech community to vibe, share knowledge, and grow together.

Fast forward to January 25, 2024, and there we were, hosting our very first 'WordPress Experts Meetup' right in the heart of Bangalore, HSR Layout.

It was more than just a meetup; it was like a mini-festival for WordPress practitioners.
