Making Connections: the Joy of Organizing the Local Community

At a WordCamp in 2011, Simon got in touch with other WordPress people for the first time. He started his first local Meetup one year later and has never stopped. Now, ten years later, after more than 150 facilitated in-person, online, and hybrid events, Simon looks back on one of the most rewarding and enjoyable hobbies he could have wished for.
Now he combined his own experiences with the shared knowledge and tricks of meetup organizers worldwide. This talk aims to help anyone interested in starting local meetups, revitalize dormant groups, and build strong and sustainable local communities.
