    Thanks to everyone for coming. I hope everyone learned something. I have written a blog post containing some notes and resources from the presentation and discussions. This includes links to what we had talked about and the code I created. http://dustyf.com/wordpress/custom-post-types-custom-fields-made-easy/

    I'm working on a project where I'd like to pull specific info from a custom post field and not display that info on that post but have it populate into a different site on the same wp multi site network..?

      Exactly as Scott and Jamie said. We charge no fees for our meetup. Just come and enjoy. Sometimes we even reward you with free food. I am trying for this month.
