November 2015: Future Event Planning & Lean Coffee

This month is a future events planning session followed by a Lean Coffee. The agenda is as follows:

1. WordCamp Sheffield 2016

Venue planning & who's involved

We're planning a follow-up to the hugely successful WordCamp Sheffield 2015 next year. We need to decide on the scale and scope of the event and choose an appropriate new venue before our application is made.

Anyone who wishes to help out or know more should come along and get involved early in the process to share ideas.

2. WordPress Sheffield Meetup in 2016:

Finding a new venue, growing the team, planning future talks

In 2016 we plan to find a new venue for the meetup with more space for growth. We also plan to move back to monthly events as the previous one-on-one-off structure has confused things!

We're open to new ideas for venues and different talk structures. Also the potential to partner with other local groups and do non-WordPress themed meetups.

3. Lean Coffee session

Ask anything about WordPress using the Lean Coffee event structure.

Lean Coffee is a great way to come together and share ideas, ask questions and get to know members of the WP Sheffield team.

This session will start by collecting discussion points, voting on which to take forward and then talking them over. Anything WordPress-related is allowed, so themes, plugins, REST API, custom development, problem solving, servers, deployment, whatever!
