About the WordPress Zurich Meetup


Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis. Created and started in 2012 by Noel Tock and managed by several local WordPress enthusiasts, the WordPress Zurich meetup group  brings together the various WP people in the greater Zurich area. With over 1000 members it is the biggest WordPress group in Switzerland. People of all skill levels are welcome to attend. So if you’re just starting out or developing really cool stuff with WordPress, join up! In first line, we want to have regular & fun meetups!

A great memory from WordCamp Switzerland 2015


The original group around Noel set out to organize WordCamp Switzerland in Zurich and did it for two years in a row, now under the umbrella of WP Switzerland the local WordCamp travels around cities in Switzerland with changing organizing teams.

In 2019, the WordPress conference came back to Zurich as a city WordCamp. In 2023 another WordCamp Switzerland is happing at Lake Murten.
