WordPress & PHP Combined Meetup (August 2016)

Hello! So in lieu of PHP Conference Asia happening in August, we’re combining our meetups together with the PHP Community. Incidentally, we have some overlaps with the organisers and speakers for the PHP Conference and WordCamp Singapore so we thought it’d be a great idea to synergise.

Please note that this is going to be very developer oriented.

You’ll likely see many PHP developers from different countries in this meetup.
