WordPress Meetup October 14th

wordpress_miniWell, it has been a while, but we are going to hold another WordPress meetup in two weeks. For those that haven’t been before, the format is pretty simple:

  1. Show up
  2. Mingle
  3. Couple quick presentations
  4. Share problems
  5. Bask in a sense of childlike wonder about the intricacies of WordPress
  6. Go home a better individual then you were before.

All corny jokes aside, these meetups are a great way to meet fellow bloggers, designers, developers, and social media types from the area.

At the October event, we are going to have a loose format where anyone can take the podium. If you have something that you would like to share, please leave a comment here proposing a 5-10 minute presentation. Proposed topics currently include:

Myself & Tyrel Kelsey: WordPress theme developement

Thom Allen: WordPress Backup and Recovery

Ash Buckles: WordPress SEO (Plugins/Permalinks/etc.)

Nate Bagley: WordPress in use for UVU school newspaper

Details

Thanks to Ash, we are having the event at the newly minted SEO.com. We have room for about sixty people, so tell your friends to come too.

  • When: Wednesday Oct. 14 from 7-9 p.m.
  • Where: 14870 S. Pony Express Road Ste. 100, just off Interstate 15 at the Draper/Bluffdale exit near the point of the mountain.
  • What to bring: Bring your questions, your problems, something to share intellectually, and something on a plate to share physically. (i.e something delicious, perhaps cookies, crackers, seven-layer dip, etc.)

Please leave a comment here if you plan on coming so we can get a general count of who is going to be there.

Thanks and RT!

April WordPress Meetup

Wanted to invite everyone back down to my house for another WordPress Meetup this week. We had a great turnout last time, and though my basement might be busting at the seams, we will do it there again.

Details:

When: Wednesday, April 15th, 2009 7:00 pm – whenever
Where: My house, 549 W. Goldenrod Way Saratoga Springs

Topics: Like last time, anything that you want to talk about. I just got a new TV that we can hook up laptops too, so bring your lappy, and examples of what you are working on.

Below are a some of the people that came last time, I hope that you all come again, and bring some friends too!

Feel free to bring a snack to share, I am thinking about looking for some exotic beverages… If you want to RSVP, just leave a comment letting me know you are coming. Then I can know how many chairs to steal from the church… Spread the word!

Utah WordPress Meetup

WordPress Logo A few weeks ago at the January Geek/Blogger dinner Thom Allen, Joseph Scott, Spencer King and I were all talking about how cool it would be if there was a time when WordPress developers/users/designers could get together and hash out whatever they were working on with the collective body of users. So, in the community nature of WordPress, I decided to put something together for next week. If you are new to WordPress, a seasoned vet, or somewhere in between, you would likely get something out of this meeting. If anything, come for the snacks. I am going to commit my wife to making some delicious bananna bread. (Will you honey?)

Details

Location: Casa de Spurlock (My House)

Time: Wednesday, 18th of March 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Topics: Anything that you want to talk about. I just got a new TV that we can hook up laptops too, so bring your lappy, and examples of what you are working on. If we do have a good response, I will see about moving to a larger location, but we should be ok… (I know, famous last words…)
