April WordPress Meetup

Each year in Seattle there is a large WordPress oriented conference called WordCamp, bringing together people from the entire WordPress community for a full day of presentations, discussions, panels and more. This year it's being held on June 28th at The University of Washington, and many of the same folks that are involved in this monthly meetup are organizers and volunteers.

This month we'd like to dedicate some time at our meetup to talk about WordCamp - what the event is all about, why you may be interested, and opportunities for participation. Our plan for this Thursday's meetup is to hold this informative session regarding WordCamp, then split out into breakout groups for the usual WordPress discussion. You can learn more about this year's event at http://2014.seattle.wordcamp.org/. Information about LAST year's event can be found at http://2013.seattle.wordcamp.org/.

As always, the Seattle WordPress Meetup is a free, non-judgemental place for people of any skill level, interest, or background to come and learn, share, and participate in our amazing WordPress community. We hope you'll join us this month for more information about WordCamp, and stick around for socializing and breakout groups.

Doors open at 6pm, things kick off at 6:30pm. Things usually wind down between 8:30pm and 9pm.

    Was definitely interesting. I was hoping to get a chance to ask some questions, but was afraid it would not be appropriate because people were there to talk about things way beyond newbies like myself. Not the case! Everyone was friendly and open :-) Somethings I didn't understand, but some things I did. I left with some helpful information and am looking forward to helping at WordCamp!

    Thanks for the insights on this year's WordCamp. Parallels will be sponsoring and I was looking for more ways for us to contribute. The volunteering and speaking opportunities seem to be just the ticket. Looking forward to helping the WordPress community grow!

    I really enjoyed it. It was low-key and learned a bunch.

    I am currently building a test site for my employer to see if I can gain all the functionality that we have with existing site. biggest hurdle in front of me is integrating salesforce forms to capture contacts with usual fields and opt ins. Would definitely contract out some work for right person. Excited to participate in the group.

      we use contactform7 and the wpcf7_before_send_mail hook to convert our form data to the corresponding salesforce fields and post to salesforce. Pretty straightforward. You might also want to check out http://wordpress.org/...­
