Due to the 1st of May being a national holiday in Finland, we are moving this meetup to Wednesday, May 8th.
The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring people of all skill levels together, from beginners to WordPress professionals. WordPress Helsinki is purely organised by community volunteers, and operates under the WordPress code of conduct.
Teemu Suoranta is a senior developer at Aucor Oy (https://www.aucor.fi/en/). He has built custom-made WordPress sites since 2013, published many plugins and organises WordPress Turku Meetup.
The talk he has prepared for this month’s meetup is mainly aimed at developers, but others might learn valuable lessons from it as well:
“After working as a programmer for a few years you will face new challenges. There are two clear paths ahead and you must choose a way or find some kind of balance to keep growing. You will have to fight against the reality that you will be a bottleneck in many things.
This talk goes over some changes of mind that you need to make. I will talk about handling stress, anxiety, busyness, leadership issues and professional growth. There will be book recommendations.”
The talk will be in English.
Drinks & snacks will be provided by Zoner (https://www.zoner.fi/).
You’re more than welcome join us later at Teerenpeli in Kamppi after the talk if you can’t make it earlier or just want sit down and chat with others from the local community.
