WordPress v3.8 - A tour of new features

WordPress v3.8 is scheduled for release later this month. Get an early look at some of the key features for this latest release, including the new Admin Design, an updated Theme Management interface, and the new Dashboard Homepage. We'll also take a look at the new Twenty Fourteen theme that will be released in conjunction with 3.8.

We'll have an informal meet & greet from 6-6:30, where we can order food and catch up with other WordPress enthusiasts and beginners. The presentation will start at 6:30 with time for a Q&A afterwards.

This presentation is open to all levels of WordPress users. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

*Note: Square 1 Burgers has a room set aside for us for 15-20 people. If you rsvp with a yes and your plans change, please update your status so that someone else can take your spot. Thank you!

    I'm totally bummed that I'm not going to make the meetup tonight. :( Last week I had a bad break to my ankle and had to have surgery on Friday. I'm simply not able to get around yet. Have to keep my leg elevated above heart level at this point. Sure would look funny laying there with my foot up on the table eating onion rings! :)

    I was taught a valuable lesson last night. As a "client" I have been badly burned by more than one web developer that I met, researched and ultimately hired. It doesn't say much for my vetting skills. Having attended the meetup last night I was impressed by a couple of things.;

    I didn't understand much of what was presented, but it was very, very well presented and it was discussed from an informed perspective.

    And, everyone one there was interested in learning and keeping current on their industry and work platforms. Not one of the people I have worked with was either present, or a member of the group.

    My lesson is when I look to hire technical expertise I should find a group like the Wordpress meetup group and attend the discussions. My guess is that I will find several good matches for Eternal Reefs by attending and listening. Thank you for letting me participate.

    I just wanted to let you know that I am still stuck in Ohio and probably will not be able to get home to Florida until January. I am still interested in belonging to this meet-up group. However, since my husband's surgery things are a bit unsettled
