Core Principles

As a part of the global WordPress community, we adhere to the basic principles that all WordPress meetups follow.

Community Benefit

WordPress Meetups are for the benefit of the WordPress community as a whole, not specific businesses or individuals. All actions taken as an event organizer are with the best interest of the community in mind.

Open Membership

Membership in the local meetup group is open to all who wish to join, regardless of ability, skill, financial status or any other criteria. During meetups, everyone works to foster an accepting environment which is free of discrimination, and general jerk-like behavior.

Voluntary Work

Meetups are volunteer-run with volunteer speakers. In cases where a modest attendance fee might be necessary, this fee should only cover the costs of the meetup and shouldn’t be used to pay speakers or organizers.

The WordPress Community in Uganda is a part of the global WordPress community. We exist to serve the local community and make things fun, interesting and beneficial for everyone in the area with an interest in WordPress. This website is our community blog with general news and updates about what’s happening locally in the world of WordPress.
