This month's meetup is sponsored by Michael's Bastos Ventures, we are excited to be doing doing something a little different. This month's meetup will revolve around updating and doing something cool with the AdvancedWP.org website that the community as a whole can use and cherish. Ideas will be discussed at the beginning of the event and tasks will be handed out, plugins will be tested and themes will be redesigned all in one grand attempt to change the AWP website in one night. Everyone that comes will have a hand in changing some aspect of the site for the better so if you love AWP, and you want to take part in making our whole experience a little better than please come on out and join us. Free food will be available by the way for those who help out...
It's a good idea to bring a laptop so you can share your code, write notes, save links, etc. during the meetup.
6:00 - 6:15 Pre-meeting Networking
The meet up doesn't 'officially' kick-off until 6:15ish. Please try to get here during the half-hour before so you can mingle, network and hang out with fellow AWPers. We understand people have a hard time getting downtown or finding parking so there's a slight buffer. During this time we will start to pass around the sign up list for those looking to share.
6:30 - 6:45 Hellos, Heys and Introductions
Introduce yourself to the group, don't be shy, we are a friendly bunch. Please tell us your name and what you do, and your experience with WordPress. Have you written a plugin or theme? Maybe you're a blogger or business owner that uses WordPress. That's great! What you looking to get out of the meetup?

7:00 - 8:00 AWP Website Sprint Planning
So we will come up with what our tasks will be for the new site, what we would like to see or do to it, what's feasable and what's not etc.
