    Greatly enjoyed the varied conversations at yesterday's meet-up with a very impressive turnout. Plenty of notes were made with some looking into later.

    Looking forward to WordCamp, with the possibility of volunteering.

    Ahh Booo. I didn't make it. Wasn't feeling so good and thought it would be rude to spread germs. I hope it was great! Looking forward to the next one.

    A little extra incentive to arrive early: I'll be bringing homemade peppermint brownies and brewing hot Cafe Esperanza coffee to share!

    December 18, 2013

    • Betsy C.

      wow! Please come early for these treats! we're not supposed to eat in the presentation room because SOMEONE (not naming names) spilled a coke and stained the carpet a few months back.

      We can snack in the kitchen/hall and play by the rules. ;)

    Hey all -- the developer of P3 Plugin Performance Profiler has agreed to come demo it for us this Thursday! I'm excited for Kurt to join us, and I'm sure he can demo it and answer q's on it much better than I can. It's a great tool to help you understand and improve your site's performance. My team is starting to incorporate it into our site audit process.

    I hope you can all make it this week!
