WordPress Meetup - February, 2014

We had a great time at our last meetup and this month just gets better with Ryan Tvenge and Morgan Estes who will be speaking.

Ryan's topic is -- Working Locally with Wordpress. He's going to demo how to download and setup Wordpress locally and migrate your site’s data down from your production website. If you build sites, then this may be of interest because working on your local machine is much faster than working on-line.

Look Ryan up at  ryantvenge.com

Morgan's topic is -- "I am a Fraud (and You Can, Too!)".  It's about getting involved in the WordPress community. Morgan has contributed to the WordPress core and is eager to show us how we can contribute.

Check Morgan out at www.morganestes.me

His WordPress blog is morganestes.wordpress.com.

Cookies - this month will be fresh monster cookies (oatmeal & chocolate chip)!

Remember our Facebook page.   https://www.facebook.com/OKCWordPress We'd love for anyone to post an interesting how-to or link to something WordPress related. Have a question? Ask it over there and hopefully, it'll get answered. It's a handy place to post things inbetween meetups. We've been getting more likes and more engagement over there, so check it out.


Oklahoma Christian is on the north side of Memorial Road between Boulevard/Martin Luther King & Bryant. After turning into the entrance, proceed to the first stop sign, turn left (west). You'll be on the (only) road that circles the campus and you'll be going to the back of the campus. So when you get to the next stop sign, you'll be at the back of the campus and headed east. Go straight

(about a block), after stopping and you'll see the Prince Engineering Building. This is a 2-story building on the hill - the most northern building on campus. Park in the back of the building and you'll see our WordPress sign on the glass door. The meeting room is upstairs - come on up, we have lots of signs posted.

If you'd rather come in the back way, you can take Boulevard/Martin L King to Smiling Hill Blvd (this is about 1/2 mi. north of Memorial Rd.

Turn east on Smiling Hill and go about 1/2 mile and you'll see the iron gate (always open), that leads into OC. Turn right (south) onto the campus. Go till you get to the first stop sign and turn left (east). You'll see the Prince Engineering Building on the hill - the 2-story building. Park in the back of the building and look for the WP sign on the glass.

    Very informative, open to input. Questions are welcome and answered in a helpful, sincere and almost family, want to help you understand, brotherly way. I am very glad I found this friendly group of programmers who are eager to spread the knowledge.

    I can't make it tonight after all, working late. Will you be recording the presentation?

      I didn't see anyone recording, and I didn't plan in advance to have mine recorded. I'll post the slides from my talk later tonight.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
