Matt Mullenweg Live!

If you have missed Matt Mullenweg speaking in Singapore back in June, the talk is recorded.

October 2014 Meetup Wrap-up

The 2nd Singapore WordPress User Group Meetup happened on 8th October 2014, .7,30pm to 8.30pm. In contrast with the first Meetup in September, this time there was no talks being given. Instead, any participant of the meetup is free to discuss topics related to WordPress.

There was about 10 participants attending this meetup.

James started off sharing about a learning management system that is built on top of WordPress’ engine. The sharing then expanded into sharing of plugins and experiences of using the plugins that extend the functionality of WordPress into ecommerce, SEO, ratings, polls, view count, and backing up installations. Also on the stability of hosting, managed WordPress hosting providers was shared as well.

The list of plugins and managed hosting providers is available on our Facebook group. It will be updated as and when there are new plugins being recommended.

The next Meetup is tentatively set on the 3rd of December 2014.

WPUG.SG is back!

Hi all!

Singapore WordPress User Group is back! We apologies for the lack of activities after WordCamp 2011.

The renewal of the User Group came right after a successful organisation for Matt Mullenweg’s Meetup at Microsoft Singapore, led by Singapore PHP User Group’s Michael Cheng. In the organising team, original co-founders of WPUG.SG, Lester and Robert were involved.

For starters, we are bringing back the meetups. The first meetup will occur on 10 September, 2014! If you can make it, do come!

In the meantime, this site is undergoing a revamp. Please bear with us as we update the design and the content of the site.

And we’re live!

It was a long time coming and we’ve finally galvanised proper support for our community. There were internal struggles, which explained why the site also took a long time coming, but eventually we’re delivering something to the Singapore WordPress community and will continue to practise an open door policy.

What we hope for is to create a difference in the way tech-based meetups are organised and managed and partner with the different technology interest groups in Singapore and the region to create a vibrant synergy in the technology quorum. In the short months that we have existed, we’ve built our base with decent support locally, and called on our regional contemporaries in Indonesia and Malaysia.

We’re not just playing a communal role in the WordPress community. SWUG sees itself to lead and partner with Asian-based technology groups and foster a Pan-Asian technology network. We hope to provide more features to this site, but it takes more than a few of us to make it happen. All these are still work-in-progress for now, and we hope more like-minded individuals will join SWUG to share their love for WordPress and play a greater role in building a more enriched Asian blogosphere.

To learn more about us, please join our SWUG group on Facebook or if you’re not from or based in Singapore, join our Asian Network.
