Are you an end-user, or a designer/programmer/consultant for WordPress?

end user with design and development experience.

What do you mainly use WordPress for? (eg. blogging, personal website, professional or corporate website, etc.)

Primarily my wife's clinic, transitioning from http:whitelotusclinic.ca (a drupal site) to a wordpress site at this beta url http://beta.mercularity.com

How much experience do you currently have with WordPress?

Not too much, about 3 hobby sites plus the main site for my wife's clinic. Was previously using drupal, though I was intermediate at best on that platform.

What are you hoping to get from The Toronto WordPress Meetup Group?

Peace of mind around wordpress best practices. I want to temper my private studies against the real world of experience of others. I would also like to apply my js and flash experience as it relates to SASS and scaling into the context of wordpress as well. I know a bit of php (could easily learn more when there's a need), but I have 10 yrs of client side experience and would like to learn the integration points and there's just nothing like doing that in person with like minded people. Thanks for your consideration!

Introduction

I'm a js/flash developer with about 5 years of experience in framework architecture for video content management systems. (KIT Digital / Kickapps). I love the ease of use of wordpress and would love to eventually write my own plugins.
