Today was the first WordPress Zürich meetup of 2019 at Liip Arena. We didn’t really have a talk tonight, so it was about things to come this year in terms of WordPress events and potential topics for the future meetups.

Thank you all for coming and don’t forget to check our community page with infos about the WordPress Switzerland Slack channel (chat) and more.

We will try to host a meetup at least every other month this year, so the next one will be in March or earlier. Let us know if you would like to present something or help organizing a meetup.

  1. Does the Meetup ever had a an overview of the JSON API and why this is especially useful. There are so many use cases of the API. Another big topic could be “WordPress as Framework” .
    So here is my suggestion for a Speech:
    “New webproject of any size and why use WordPress as the solid ground”
