PressLabs: WordPress Coworking

WordPress workers unite! Bring your laptops, coffee, notebooks, and something to work on (a project, something you'd like to learn, an experiment you'd like to try, etc)

This is an experiment - we know many WordPress workers work at home and miss out on opportunities for collaboration, so let's try WordPress-focused coworking. If it's a success, we'll repeat monthly.

Feel free to bring friends, coworkers, your mentor, your employees, or anyone at all along with you.

We'll kick off each morning with a quick standup to introduce ourselves and talk about what we'll be working on and what we might need help with. Get help with something you're stuck on or jump in to help someone else where they're stuck. Or just enjoy being and working around other WordPress nerds for a few hours. :-)

We won't be serving food, but you are welcome to bring your own brown bag lunch, or visit one of the local eateries - there's no shortage of options!


Price:
Usual PressLabs Price:
$̶2̶0̶/̶d̶a̶y̶
Introductory offer for the first PressLabs: $10/day!

We'll be offering this first PressLabs Coworking Day for just $10. (All future PressLabs coworking days will be $20/day.) This is a very nice discount off the usual 1-day coworking fee of $35 at Blankspaces Downtown. Huge thanks going out to Blankspaces for allowing us to offer this special deal.

Additionally, those who are already paying members of Blankspaces Downtown and those who pay monthly dues to SoCal WP won't be charged any additional fee for attending this coworking day.

You may pay online by credit/debit card in advance of the meetup or pay the day of. At the venue we'll accept cash or credit/debit card.


Venue Sponsor:  
Blankspaces Downtown


Location

While Blankspaces DTLA's address is on Broadway, you'll actually find the entrance at the back of the building. There is no entrance on Broadway. Instead, you'll need to enter through the alley that runs from 5th to 6th street, between Hill and Broadway. You'll find the door in about the middle of the block - it's well marked. There is a call box with instructions for unlocking the door. Once you're inside, take the elevator (or the stairs if you're feeling energetic) up to the 4th floor to find us.


Parking 

The good news is that there is no shortage of public parking lots downtown. There are probably at least 20 different lots within a few of blocks of Blankspaces. The bad news is they can be quite pricey.

Map of lots and rates for all-day parking.

But, wait! There's more. Blankspaces is less than 1 block from the Red Line/Purple Line Pershing Square station. Easy to walk, and no downtown parking hassles. Do yourself a favor and take public transportation, folks.

If you don't live near a Metro station, there are several stops along both the red and purple lines with low cost or free park and ride lots - just drive to the one nearest you and leave your car there, then hop on the train. Or be super duper eco fitness kid and ride your bike to the nearest station.

    Sorry I wasn't able to make it over today. Two sick kids and a looming Saturday deadline are keeping me on the westside. I'd love to see this sort of event again, co-working is much more enjoyable than home-working... cheers!

      Please just update your RSVP on case someone else on the wait list is able to attend with late notice.

      Natalie, I'm stuck in Santa Barbara with a client and will not be able to make it today.

    Stuck in traffic but I should be there soon.

    Good Wednesday morning. I'm starting with WordPress using Headway Themes drag and drop for my eCommerce website . Any advice would be appreciated.

    I might be there a bit early. Will there be someone there? If not, I'll find a coffee shop. :)

    Here are two maps that might be useful. Exact Google Maps GPS location of BLANKSPACES entrance in the alley Lindley Pl. (parallel to Broadway):

    There's a parking lot right behind that is entered through Hill St. (parallel to both Lindley Pl. and Broadway).

    There are also lots on Main and 6th that I park at often. If anyone wants to wash their car while they're coworking, the east corner lot has a decent car wash.

  • Natalie M.

    We're all full - please, if you can't make it, update your RSVP so someone else gets the chance to attend. I'm sure we'll have a waiting list soon. Thank you for being considerate and just generally awesome.

    April 17, 2014

    • Natalie M.

      Just a reminder with the event coming up tomorrow - if you can't make it after all, please update your RSVP as early as you can to allow someone on the wait list the chance to come.

    Sorry, I just now noticed the RSVP!

    April 16, 2014

  • Melody

    I thought the sign up for starting to day at 9:30 and for there is no button to sign up. Did I miss the sign up or read things wrong?

    April 16, 2014

  • Karen M.

    This is a great idea...even for my distant commute! ;-) I'm going out of town the next day, so won't be able to attend this month, but I hope it's repeated! It would be great to co-work with other WordPressers for the day!

    April 14, 2014

  • Natalie M.

    Sorry everybody! I forgot to open RSVPs! Oops. You can RSVP now.
