- Show up
- Couple quick presentations
- Share problems
- Bask in a sense of childlike wonder about the intricacies of WordPress
- 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:
Thom Allen: WordPress Backup and Recovery
Ash Buckles: WordPress SEO (Plugins/Permalinks/etc.)
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!

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…)
