Last night's meetup
Thank you so much to all of you who braved traffic and came out to Kleverdog to join us for our Child Themes presentation and plans for 2013 last night. Thanks to Joe Chellman for the awesome introduction to Child Themes. And thanks again going out to our sponsors for last night's meetup: Kleverdog Coworking and WooThemes. Without our sponsors, our events wouldn't be possible.

Joe had a technical glitch with recording a screencast of his presentation, but he has promised to re-record his presentation and get the video out to our group. Isn't he nice? As soon as he's got that ready, we'll get that out to all of you.

Slides for the survey and 2013 plans are here:


February's meetup
Tues, February 26, 7pm at CrossCampus
(RSVP's open January 26th)

At our February meetup, we're going to cover four (4!!) different ways to manage multiple WordPress sites. Getting multiple sites set up is deceptively easy, but you soon find yourself mired in a mess of WordPress, theme and plugin updates, so we'll take a look at some different tools for keeping all of your WordPress sites updated, fresh, and secure.

February Volunteers Needed!
We need volunteer superheroes for the following for our February meetup:

  • Speakers: Seeking people with experience using InfiniteWP or ManageWP. Or an interest in trying one of them out for the next month in exchange for a free license!
  • Setup: 2 people to arrive by 6pm to set up chairs, the stage, etc.
  • Checkin Desk: 1 person to arrive by 6:30pm to man (or woman) the check-in desk at the front door
  • Takedown: 2 people to stay approximately 30 mins after the meetup to take down the chairs, stage, etc.
  • Video: 1 person to record the presentations to video so we can make them available to everyone afterward

Just respond to this email if you are willing to be a volunteer superhero and help out.

    You know that you should have a website for your small business, but it’s so hard to know where to get started – should you hire someone to build it for you or try and tackle it yourself? How much should you budget? How do you find someone to hire? Which tools are the best to use? In this two-hour session, you’ll get all the information you need to make an informed decision and get started on the path to having a successful small business website – whether or not you should do it yourself, which tools are ideal, how to go about hiring someone to help, and how to successfully work within any budget, even if your budget is no budget at all.
