(Boulder) WordPress Study Group of Awesomeness! RESCHEDULED

  • Apr 23, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Hey ladies!

Are you interested in WordPress? Maybe you're working on a WordPress site right now and you're stuck on something. Maybe you're a super star WP developer. Or maybe you just want to get comfortable with this platform so you can add it to your fabulous repertoire?

I'm looking for other women who want to start up a WWC WP work/study group. I use the platform a lot for the client work I do since I focus a lot on helping small businesses and non profit organizations. My background is in design and I know CSS and HTML, but my year-end goal is to be able to build a custom theme from the ground up. The only problem is I need to designate time for this or I know I'll just keep filling my schedule with work I can already do, instead of building up some new skill sets.

So maybe you're thinking we have different goals...That's okay! I think it would be really fun and helpful to have a group where we can work on each others' projects, get together and do tutorials, maybe build a cool plugin, and just generally bounce ideas off of one another.

Let us know what your WordPress dream is and we'll all work together to make it come true.

    Hi all,

    Sorry for the delay on this. Just wanted to send out a quick update. We had a really great meeting on Tuesday! There were only a few of us, but we figure that we will have more people next time. Assuming the snow is behind us now...

    We hope for the group to be a place where we can work on our own projects and each others' projects once a month (maybe more if there's interest). There has also been talk of building a website in WP together so we can all get used to the way WP sites are built.

    The next meeting will be in May, I think we may stick with Wednesday since there was more interest in that day to begin with. At the June meeting we are talking about organizing a workshop. One idea is to do a manual WP install on a server. If you have any ideas or wants for something specific please let us know.

    Thanks again for being awesome and see you next month!

    Super bummed I can't make it now that the date has changed.

    Sorry, when it got rescheduled, I already had plans for tonight. Just realized I was still RSVP'd as Yes, but hope it is a great evening for all!

    Some chaotic awesomeness has occurred that I need to attend to, so it looks like I can't make this rescheduled event. Please enjoy, WordPress is the bomb!

    Would love to be a part of the next one!

  • Vanessa

    Sorry gals but I am not going to be able to make this one.

    April 22, 2013

  • Cori C.

    Tuesdays are generally best for me but can't make Tues or Weds this week. Look forward to seeing you at the next one!

    April 21, 2013

  • Cat J.

    Ya Tuesday is great with me.

    April 20, 2013

  • Diana L.

    Both Tuesday and Wednesday work for me.

    April 20, 2013

  • Bethany

    Would love to be included on the WordPress meetup, but I can't make it this Tuesday evening - I will be at the Boulder Designers for Women Group: http://www.meetup.com/Boulder-Designers-Group-for-Women/

    April 20, 2013

  • Katie F.

    Is everyone okay with Tuesday evening? If so I'll go ahead and reschedule with Dojo4. Please let me know if that date doesn't work, and if so, a better date.

    Thanks!

    April 20, 2013

  • Vanessa

    So glad to find this meetup! Studying alone just isn't as much fun :)

    April 19, 2013

  • Katie F.

    In case you missed it: the survey for tomorrow's event. Should we reschedule?

  • Christine

    Snow tomorrow night, our inaugural meeting. Are we still on?

    April 16, 2013

    • Katie F.

      Oh, good call! I'll send out a survey to see how people feel. We'll call the survey closed at 4:00pm tomorrow and make a decision then. Sound okay with everyone?

    I would love to attend, but I have a conflict in my schedule. Keep me posted on the next one. :-)

    April 14, 2013

  • Cat J.

    Not sure if I can make it to this one, after all. I'll see you guys at the next one, though, if not. And do some research on my own to prepare. Keep me posted!

    April 12, 2013

  • Kathy Gallup K.

    I have built several Wordpress themes with custom posts as well as some custom plugins. There is always more to learn. I will try to attend. I want to build a solid responsive design template next and welcome the time to be able to work on it.

    April 11, 2013

  • Corrinda C.

    Sorry I can't make it I'm hosting the Denver WordPress Meetup that night. I'll try to make the next meeting

    April 11, 2013

  • Christine

    woo. hoo. seriously, looking forward to it.

    April 4, 2013

  • Katie F.

    UPDATE:

    We've secured a time and location! Corey from Dojo4 offered up their space for us and said 6:30 would be a better time than 6pm. It's right by Pivotal Labs, just across the alley. Woohoo!

    April 4, 2013

  • Cat J.

    Cool! I'll try to organize some ideas of stuff I want to learn/explore in the near future to bring to the table, too.

    April 4, 2013

  • Katie F.

    Awesome! I'm going to have a call today to nail down the location and time. More updates to come soon.

    In the coming days/weeks I'd love to hear from all of you what you'd like to work on at our first meeting. I definitely don't want to lead the conversation, I just wanted to create a space for us to collaborate and learn together.

    Example: I've got a design background and have used a lot of premium themes so I'm interested in learning more about php and the functions.php page in particular. What about you all?

    It would be good to get some things lined up ahead of time so we can work on a couple different things in the time we have. Or something all together since we may have a small enough group.

    April 4, 2013

  • Kelly B.

    I just discovered this group and I am very excited about all of the opportunities you are presenting! I am definitely interested in learning about Wordpress - I've used it sparingly but need to play with it more. I will see you all on Wed if you're ok with a newbie!

    April 4, 2013

  • Katie F.

    Ok, looks like we've got a date. I'm free after 4:30pm. Let me know what time works for all of you. I was thinking it would be nice to have at least 2 hours. If you know of a good place to have the meetup just let us all know. I'll work on trying to secure a place myself.

    April 2, 2013

  • Christine

    count me in

    March 24, 2013

  • Cat J.

    Works for me as well.

    March 22, 2013

  • Diana L.

    That works for me!

    March 21, 2013

  • Katie F.

    So how do we feel about Wednesday April 17th? It seems like a good week for a lot of reasons. Ladies?

    March 21, 2013

  • Diana L.

    I'm interested! I've always worked in other platforms and want to add WP to my repertoire.

    March 20, 2013

  • Cat J.

    April the 15th or any day that week in the evening works great with me.

    March 20, 2013

  • Corrinda C.

    Hi Katie Keep me posted and let's see how we can coordinate. As the lead organizer of the Denver WordPress Meetup I'd like to support the group.

    March 19, 2013

  • Katie F.

    I would be down to have a shifting meetup if that's what works for everyone. We could always switch between Boulder and Denver. I'm totally swamped until the 8th. That week might not work for people though since the WWC meetups are then anyway. Anyone want to suggest a date? We could always doodle, too!

    March 19, 2013

  • Cindy

    I'm definitely interested, but not sure how often I can make it up to Boulder.

    March 19, 2013

  • Cat J.

    Yup, I'm definitely interested in growing my skillset in Wordpress. Similarly I know HTML/CSS and myself, some jQuery. I would like to learn to do more with Wordpress, and create cool plug-ins and such for sure. And similarly I am often swamped and haven't created time, yet, to learn the Wordpress world. Let's do it! Study time!!! :).

    March 19, 2013

  • Amy R.

    Hey Katie,
    I'm totally interested in a WordPress group. I'm a novice but excited to learn.
    Thanks for putting it together!
    Amy

    March 19, 2013

  • Katie F.

    It's true! I'll be there, whenever and wherever it is. Y'all just let me know when you'd like to meet up.

    :D
