WordPress Coworking Day

Join us at CoWork Tampa at 10am! We'll be given a tour shortly after at 10:15am so don't be late. After the tour we'll settle in and get to work on our WordPress projects!

I figure we break for lunch at 12:30 and go eat together, but it's not necessary. Let's play lunch by ear and see how many of us show up, what we're feeling like and if it's conducive to our schedules.

Note: Feel free to roll in at any time if you can't make it in at 10am. We won't hold it against you!

 

WHAT IS COWORKING? (from the wiki)

Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization.[1] Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation.[2] Coworking is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values,[3] and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with like-minded talented people in the same space.[4][5]

Coworking offers a solution to the problem of isolation that many freelancers experience while working at home, while at the same time letting them escape the distractions of home.[6][7]

    This was such a great idea and such a great space. I'll definitely be looking at a monthly membership here, too.

    Well, that was fun! We should definitely do this again.

      Totally agree, thanks for setting this up. Matt Husby had a great idea of setting up a little Happiness Bar (maybe in the conference room there) when we do this again so folks can get WordPress questions answered or help with whatever they need help with.

    At CoWork now - Can anyone help me start an Ecommerce WP site?

    February 19

    • Alphonso M.

      Peter, I have actually started working on a new website for ecommerce using WP and 2 plugins: Gravity Forms and Premise. It's very simple to setup. The site is membership to allocate a service. It can also be used to download IP. Contact me if want to discuss it in detail.

  • Alison F.

    Hi all,

    Please update your RSVP status so I know if you're really coming this Wednesday. Remember, this is a day for co-working and collaboration on projects. You are also welcome to hunker down and work alone. This is not a learning /presentation style event. These are for folks who are looking to get things done and shoot ideas off each other.

    You can also come just to check out the space and see what CoWork Tampa has to offer.

    Looking forward to attending---any progress on a date, time and location?

    What's the status on this?

    October 22, 2013

  • Chris A.

    You can use CoWorkTampa, contact us.

    2 · May 21, 2013

    • Chris A.

      Yes, free. Just let me know.

    • Jon W.

      I say we go for CoWorkTampa. Thanks for suggesting it Chris!

    What about co-working at a library? Most of them have community rooms. I'm not sure about Internet though.

    1 · August 9, 2013

    • Jim T.

      That's a possibility. If we reserve the community room, we'd get the internet. It might be a little clogged with all of us, but it's an option.

      Also CoWork Tampa gives a break for first time MeetUps there, I believe. I've never been by CoWork Tampa or the other one in the Sykes Tower downtown, but could be fun.

      August 23, 2013

    • Chris A.

      I own CoWorkTampa. You can use the space for your first meetup for FREE. Cheers,

  • Theresa C.

    I'm a smidge over novice but needing more knowledge. Like-minded conversation on Wordpress would be great. Hope date & time are set soon!

    August 22, 2013

  • Jon W.

    I like the idea of a library a lot.

    August 9, 2013

  • Chris A.

      August 9, 2013

    • Alison F.

    What date and time will this meeting be held?

    August 7, 2013

  • James B.

    OK....I'm a novice. Searching for help getting my domain name (site) up and running via WordPress. Seems like there is a lot of interested people wanting to attend a meeting.

    August 5, 2013

  • James B.

    I just joined the group....would like to see a date, location, time....fairly soon.....hello!

    July 22, 2013

  • Gordon M.

    July 19, 2013

    July 17, 2013

  • Nadina T.

    Want to attend, location would be helpful. :)

  • Laura

    I am interested in this, but I can't rsvp not knowing when and where it is. Tampa Bay Wave or CoWorkTampa seem interesting.

  • Tish H.

    Id like more info about "cowork"

    May 26, 2013

  • Andi G.

    We could probably host if people don't mind sitting around our conference table. We have space for 8 I think and may have an open desk or two (or 3) depending on the day too.

    • Alison F.

      I like the idea of having our first co-work day in St. Pete. We've had too many events on this side of the bridge. How does early July look for you?

      June 12, 2013

  • Jon W.

    I don't mind at all, Adi. As a matter of fact, I'd prefer to be in that kind of setting.

    May 21, 2013

  • Jil K.

    Just found this meet up. Looking forward to the exchange of good ideas, solutions and web development.
