What’s on May 27, you ask?
May 27, 2013 is the 10th anniversary of the first WordPress release!
We think this is worth celebrating, and we want WordPress fans all over the world to celebrate with us by throwing their own parties. We’re using Meetup Everywhere to coordinate, and will be putting up a website just for the 10th Anniversary so that we can collect photos, videos, tweets, and posts from all the parties.
The rules are very simple:
- Pick a place to go where a bunch of people can be merry — a park, a bar, a backyard, whatever
- Spread the word to local meetups, tech groups, press, etc and get people to say they’ll come to your party
- If 50 or more people RSVP to your party, we’ll try to send you some WordPress stickers and buttons
- Have party attendees post photos, videos, and the like with the #wp10 hashtag
We’ll be using Meetup Everywhere to coordinate parties all over the world, so get your city on the map and register your party now !
We’ll follow up with registered organizers over the next few weeks with some tips for how to publicize your party and to get addresses for swag packages. To that end, make sure you check the option that lets WordPress 10th Anniversary know your email, or we won’t be able to get in touch with you for these things or to give you access to the WP10 blog.
Whose party will be the biggest? The most fun? The most inventive? Will it be yours?
Note: If you already run a group on meetup.com, making your party an event in your group is great, but you still need to post it and have people RSVP at the special party page, because regular groups and Meetup Everywhere groups aren’t connected yet.
