BostonWP Meetup Tonight: 20th Anniversary Celebration

WordPress 20th Anniversary wapuu by Emalina “Ema” DeRosia

The Boston WordPress Meetup will be meeting tonight to celebrate 20 years of WordPress.

We’ve not been meeting as a Boston WordPress meetup for 20 years, but we have been meeting as a local group since 2009 – the first BostonWP event was a meeting at Diva in Davis Square to which 6 people RSVP’D. (I missed the first two, but caught the third).

Since then, we’ve met at the NERD Center in Kendall Square, at what used to be “Alley powered by Verizon” (at 10 Ware Street) in Cambridge (which seems to no longer exist), at Boston University (multiple different buildings), and at the Hult International Business School.

We’ve held ten WordCamps in Boston (2010-2019) and survived a global pandemic. We’ve had a number of key organizers come and go, but still have a core team that is interested in reviving the meetup (and planning for the next WordCamp Boston, likely 2024)

Come join us tonight and celebrate 20 years of WordPress and ~14 years of BostonWP!

(We’re back at the NERD Center, though the branding has evolved a bit – The Garage at Microsoft New England).
