The Italian WordPress community events’ calendar

Our friend Pascal Casier has realized an entire website gathering events from all over the Italian WordPress community under a single umbrella, complementary ti all other channels made by the community.
Among the many sections present in the website, there’s a page devoted to show off the ‘social’ events of the current month … the URL si Calendario Eventi. Here you can find all the details of the announced meetup, WordCamps and various encounters officially sponsored but the community.

As you can see in the above screenshot when you visit the page you have the full month view, with everything listed in the particular date and, highlighted in yellow, the current day.

In the second part of the screen, instead, you have a map of the official communities over Italy, followed by an alphabetically sorted list of the groups [clicking on a city’s name you are redirected to the relative Meetup group page].

Here you have also infos about the current number of the “meetup group subscribers” and, when present – as in the Bari’s case below – the formal link to the announced event.

I think his initiative is excellent and commendable, and I invite those who have suggestions to contact him on the WordPress’ international or Italian Slack channels.

Also, if you’re into WordPress and are coming to Italy maybe you can plan to say Hi to a local group, and possibly share some of your knowledge and experiences with us. You will be welcomed for sure!

Why is Italy poorer and underdeveloped than other European countries?

James AtkinsonResident and close observer of Italy since 2006” tries to tell us the reasons of this in a Quora thread →

As long as Italians continue to feel like subjects instead of citizens, the only thing on the menu is economic and political stagnation.

Is the cure, according to James … and I, born here more than forty years ago, have to nod and agree 😦
