WordPress is much-loved all around the world, and is the most-used content management system of all. A huge community of developers, designers and content managers meet up regularly at WordCamps all over the world and in Switzerland, there has been a rapidly-increasing show of interest since the first national WordCamp at Zurich in 2014.
By meeting people offline and online, it’s obvious that many developers and designers like to exchange tips whilst giving and receiving help in the community. Local “meetups” are organised semi-regularly across the country: amongst them, my “local” WordPress Bern, the recently re-started WordPress Zurich, and WordPress Lucerne which I hope to attend soon. And that’s before I even begin to start looking into French- and Italian Switzerland.
In order to give WordPress developers and designers a free virtual place to hang out between meetups, Nico and I started a Slack channel this week: a free chat room in which members can exchange knowledge, share links, and get to know other developers across Switzerland.
We write and answer in English, German, French… or whichever language we can! Don’t be put off though: we don’t expect you to try and make yourself understood in a language in which you may not be fluent.
If you don’t have a wordpress.org login, then sign up for free here. Having a login there also allows you to start taking part in WordPress’ own support forums – giving and receiving help – as well as submitting your own plugins and themes to the Plugin and Theme Directories.)
