Using Wordpress to Create and Manage Websites

Sorry for the short interruption in meetups, but life got very busy for me as I welcomed my new son to the world in late September. Things are somewhat back to normal now so I figured we are overdue for a meetup.

This year, I've decided to give you your Christmas present early in the form of Al Davis' Using Wordpress to Create and Manage Websites presentation. As many of you know, Wordpress has a huge following which is ever-growing. There is a lot of potential out there for those who know how to harness its capabilities to rapidly create new websites or provide enhanced functionality to existing sites. I am anxious to learn the ins and outs and I hope you are as well.

We will be returning to the S Walter Stewart library, but I am moving the timeslot to the afternoon. Hopefully this makes it easier on those of you who are coming from far away or those who just aren't morning people.

This will of course be our last meetup of 2010.

As usual, we will be asking for a $5 donation to help offset the cost of the room and supplies.

    Great turnout. Great speaker. I think everyone was entertained and got a lot out of the meetup. I made several good connections.

    I really enjoyed this meetup. Thank-you Al for sharing your knowledge and techniques about wordpress development for corporate sites. Your talk really inspired a lot of interesting discussion later and I think I learned as much from the discussion as the informative lecture.

    For me the meeting was a little light. I do know now what to set if I want to make a WordPress page static which I'm sure will save me some time figuring this out for myself at some point. It was nice to see people I met before and meet new ones. Best Wishes for the Season!

    Getting a break on Meetup Charges: A lot of companies give "Non-profits" a break on charges and I certainly see the "East Toronto Meetup" group as non-profit. I got burned an extra $20 with "Meetup" as I was not aware that "Meetup" signed me up for automatic renewal. I missed the fine print. :-( What about Open Source''s Joomla? There was a "Meetup" group for that in Toronto I could not attend but that group seems to have died. See you Saturday!

    I pay the fees. There is no break for us unfortunately.... but then again why would there be?

    I willl bring some snacks yet to be decided! See you next Saturday Dec 11. BTW, I much prefer saturday afternoons! QUESTION: Who, for this group, pays for the "Meetup" fees???? Does Meetup give this group a special break on fees???
