Creating Simple, Effective and Affordable Websites - Workshop

Natalie MacLees  will lead the workshop. It is a continuation of What You Should Know to Create an Effective Web Site meetup in April, 2014. It is open to all who want to gain a hands on experience in building a simple website. Bring your laptop. All are welcome with or without laptops.

PLEASE NOTE - There is free wifi in the library. However it is a little slower, and it might get
really slow if all of us are using it at the same time.

Please download and install the free version of Desktop Server on your laptop before coming to the meeting. The link is:

The free version of that software will work just fine for the workshop - it will enable all to set up WordPress on their own computers and won't need to use the wifi.

Natalie MacLees is a front-end web developer and UI designer and is founder
+ principal of the interactive agency, Purple Pen Productions. In 2012 she
published jQuery for Designers with Packt Publishing. She founded and runs
the jQuery LA Users' Group and together with Noel Saw she heads up the

All meetings have the following format.
- Introduction of all people in attendance
- Meeting topic presentation
- New business ideas discussions
- Questions about how to improve a current business
- Networking

GroundUP Business group focus is on education and providing encouragement and support to new entrepreneurs and small businesses owners.

We stay with the main goals for this meet up group:
-To offer a friendly environment to people who want to start a business but do not how
-To offer a forum for startup entrepreneurs at any stage of their early development;
-To encourage entrepreneurs and business owners to discuss freely any ideas or problems;
-To offer current and timely information and education to all participants.

There is no selling of products or services during the meeting. Yet, we encourage networking after the official part ends

Our goal is to finish by 8:30 PM. For these that want to stay and continue to discuss ideas, we will. On numerous occasions we have stayed past 10PM. The location allow us to do so.

Do not forget to bring any new business ideas you want to discuss or share. Bring business cards.

Looking forward to see you at the next meeting!
