Monthly WordPress Meetup!

Due to our normally scheduled Meetup date falling on Thanksgiving, we're suggesting you attend the talk being given by Ethan Marcotte on November 22.  Ethan was the keynote speaker at this year's WordCamp Boston and discussed theming for mobile and tablet devices.

From SPACE's Website:

When we create for the web, we participate in a kind of public art. We code, we design, we build for an audience, shaping digital experiences that provide a service, or that create joy, or that simply connect readers with words written half a world away. But in this session we’ll revisit what we’ve learned about responsive design, and ensure our content, not just our design, is readily accessible to them wherever and whenever they are. In doing so, we’ll look at some ways in which our audience reshapes the way we think about our medium, and see where they might be leading us—and the web—next.  

Ethan Marcotte is an independent designer/developer who is passionate about beautiful design, elegant code, and the intersection of the two. Over the years his clientele has included New York Magazine, the Sundance Film Festival, the Boston Globe, and the W3C.
Ethan coined the term “responsive web design” to describe a new way of designing for the ever-changing Web and, if given the chance, will natter on excitedly about it—he even went so far as to write a book on the topic. A popular and experienced speaker, he is also the coauthor of Jeffrey Zeldman’s Designing With Web Standards (3rd Edition), and a contributing writer to Dan Cederholm’s Handcrafted CSS.
Ethan lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and would like to be an unstoppable robot ninja when he grows up. Beep.

AIGA and SPACE Members are welcome to a cocktail hour with Ethan at 5:30.  Open to the public at 6:00.

    I was confused about the meet up. I was at Space and felt that what was taking place was going to be way over my head and ability so I didn't stay. I didn't realize it was a paid event until I got there

    Just a reminder, it is $25 for this evening's talk, $15 for SPACE or AIGA members.

    Are we invited to the 5:30 portion? And, I assume this is not a regular WP meetup but has been replaced by the speaking engagement. Is this correct?

      You would have to be an AIGA or SPACE member to access the 5:30 portion. Because of the holiday we thought this would be a good suggested replacement, since Ethan was the keynote speaker at WordCamp Boston. Our next event will be Dec. 17 at Casco Bay Tech Hub and will be a holiday party.

    If you need a location, I can offer my home in Bowdoinham. It can easily fit 20 or more in some of the bigger rooms.

      Thank you for the offer, we believe we've found a new home at Casco Bay Tech Hub in Portland.

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