We Love Web & WordPress Community Events

Events have been part of Make Do since we started as an agency and we actively attend, speak and organise both general-web/digital and WordPress-focused events.

Why? Well, as a remote-team it can often be difficult to find the time to really think and reflect and learn. This is one of the reasons we find events so valuable.

Community Events We’ve Been Involved With

Need a speaker for your event or are you looking for sponsorship / support for your event or meetup?

Why We Run Tech Events

Events have always been part of our history and culture at Make Do and this part of our business will always be open as long as we can find an audience.

WordCamp-Ing In London In 2018

At WordCamp London this weekend? Catch up Kimb and Charlie from our team! They’ll be there all weekend and can generally be found near the coffee station or first in line for tokens at the after-party!

Sponsoring UK Health Camp

The awesome UK Health Camp is back for 2018 and happening in Manchester on Saturday 8th September.

The Future Of FrontEndNorth

A few months ago we met up with the team behind the regular local meetup group ‘Front End Sheffield‘ to discuss if we could hand over the FrontEndNorth conference to them to manage long term.

FrontEndNorth’s Local Community Aspirations

Our FrontEndNorth conference arrives again in Sheffield early next year and it’s great to see that the event is having a positive impact on the local community.

Feeding A Thriving Tech Community With Industry Events

FEN is more than just a Front-end conference, it’s a full day web and digital festival and one of the only events like it in the area of Sheffield and Yorkshire.

Sponsoring WordCamp Edinburgh

Sponsorship allows these events to keep ticket prices low and help open doors to WordPress-ers of any background and skill-set.

WordPress Sheffield Lean Coffee

At our non-speaker focused sessions, we really love the Lean Coffee format, as it lets us quickly get through lots of topics in one go.

Sponsoring WordCamp London 2017!

We’ve lost count of the number of WordPress-themed events we’ve sponsored or supported in other ways and sponsorship is a great way to gain some exposure and give back to the community.

WordPress Sheffield Is Now On Meetup.com

After many years of independence the WordPress Sheffield meet up is now part of the official WordPress meetup listings on meetup.com.

Speaking At WordSesh

The talk covers my 10 Step Guide to doing your own thing (with WordPress) which is a session that borrows elements from a talk I did back in January 2016 at WordPress London and covers all of the messy steps I took when starting our agency.

FEN 2016 Photo Gallery

FrontEndNorth 2016 was a blast! We filled Sheffield City Hall with a few hundred brilliant web-people and got some great feedback from the community.
