    Once again another stellar WP Meetup!
    Steve Wainstead delivered a quick plug for a non-profit hack-a-thon, sounds interesting. Dre Armeda from sucuri.net did a great job presenting (via Skype) the do's and don'ts of malware protection and overall security preparedness. John Hawkins helped us make sense out of bbPress forum and BuddyPress social networking software. As usual John’s enthusiasm along with great questions from the group took us to lots of interesting places… And with time running out, Russ Aaron showed some very cool timesaving shortcodes he was working on and gave us a quick peak at WP “Shortcodes Ultimate”.
    THANKS!!!

    For anyone interested in learning WordPress. This meet up is packed with information.

    Would this be a good class for a beginner? I am new to Wordpress & currently use Joomla. I just want to see what Wordpress has to offer. I missed the last meeting due to work.

      Also, I am on skype when I have time to kill and I can help with simple things. I don't have time to teach multiple items on an agenda, but if you had a quick question you could ask a question.

    I'd be interested in learning about authoring a WP plugin.

      One of the things we're looking to do is split up the meetup in to two different monthly meetups. One more focused on user-side functionality and the other focused on more dev related topics. I'd love to do an hour-long session about plugin development, but I fear it would bore the heck out of the group. But, it will be my FIRST topic for the dev meetup.

      I think this is a great idea. Just because you consider yourself a NOOB or a rookie when it comes to WP does not mean you can start learning now. I cant tell you how many times John Hawkins has given a presentation about a WP related topic, and it made complete sense to me because I either did some research on my own, or another presenter talked about in a previous meet up. John's talk on Child themes alone is well worth checking out.
