Anyone interested in doing a WordPress Meetup ‘t Gooi?

The previous two years, I’ve helped put together a WordPress meetup in Amersfoort. While this was fun to do, it didn’t really make sense, because I do not live in (or even really near) Amersfoort. As a result know very little about essential things like venues there. It looks like this year, local WordPress people will take over “their” meetup, and I’ve been thinking about setting up a brand new one in “my” 035 area of The Netherlands.

Ideally, I’d like to do something that’s a little more informal than the Amersfoort ones were, and probably also more frequent. If there’s anyone who’d like to help organize, speak at, or simply attend such a meetup, please let me know in the comments. Oh, and despite the little joke I pulled with the logo, I’m hoping to keep it as low-key and relaxed as possible. Suit and tie entirely optional, perhaps even frowned upon :).


  1. Gladly will attend. Not a big speaker, though 🙂
    Look forward to seeing the first announcement.
    Any ideas on location already?

    • None, except that Hilversum seems to be ideal (central, 3 train stations, etc). Need something cheap (or sponsored/free), because I want to keep the meetups free (as in beer).

  2. That “even frowned upon” is funny.

  3. Hi Roy,

    I recently created my first wordpress site and would be interested in attending any meet ups?

    P.S do you have a section of your site dedicated to questions?
