Bristol 2018

23 February 2018 at DeskLodge
Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol

Not just the first do_action day in Bristol, not just the first do_action day in the United Kingdom, but the very first do_action day in the whole of Europe!!!

Why would you not want to be part of it?!

do_action Bristol is a one day hackathon with the aim of building 5 websites for 5 worthy causes in a single day.

This is a WordPress Community event so all the sites will be built using WordPress. The event will be held on Friday 23 February 2018 at:

1 Temple Way,
BS2 0BY.

This is a great opportunity for

  • developers,
  • designers,
  • graphic artists,
  • content editors,
  • SEO and social media specialists, and
  • project managers

from in and around Bristol who have expertise in WordPress, or even just an interest in WordPress, to come together and spend the day

  • working in teams, learning from each another, and sharing knowledge and skills with one another,
  • helping extremely worthy local causes benefit by getting an expertly crafted website,
  • oh, and we’ll have fun and make new friends while we’re about it!

And if you’re a charity or non-profit organisation you don’t need to allocate some of your already hard-stretched funds for what would probably be a low-budget website. By participating in this event you have the chance to get a well designed and expertly developed new website, created by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team of volunteers, for absolutely nothing – freeing up your limited funds to be spent on your primary cause – and in a single day, so no long drawn out projects that sap your time and energy and will be finished “sometime soon”!

Get in at the beginning with this new type of WordPress Community event, which complements the more well-known and established community events, namely MeetUp Groups and WordCamps.

NOTE: If you’d like to to be involved in the do_action day but don’t feel the role you want is available or if you have a skill which we haven’t considered that you think would be useful to us, then get in touch and we’ll see how we can include you in the day. Email us at:
