For September's meetup, we'll have an open share of things we learned at WordCamp. Both Portland and Boston are holding WordCamps this month. WordCamp is a super inexpensive way to spend the day reveling in WordPress - only $20 for each of these great events. These events have sessions for all different types of users from beginners to power users to developers - truly something for everyone.
WordCamp Maine (in Portland, ME): Fri 8/15 - Sun 8/17
Fri is beginner sessions, Sat is the main day for sessions for all levels, and Sun is a Contributor Day. Learn more at http://2014.maine.wordcamp.org/
WordCamp Boston: Sat Aug 22 - Sun Aug 23
Sat is sessions for all users and Sun is a Contributor Day. Learn more at http://2014.boston.wordcamp.org/
These events will likely sell out, so I recommend grabbing tickets soon.
WordPress users and developers of all levels are welcome at all of our meetups. Developers meetups are held on the 1st Wed of each month. At our Developers meetups, the topics tend to be focused on the the back-end coding and development of sites from scratch or sometimes to business practices related to making a living from WordPress, etc. You will find a casual and friendly bunch of folks at our meetups and time is available for networking and shout-outs.
If you are interested in giving a 10-15 minute lightning talk about something (longer talks are fine too!), please let me know ([masked]). These talks can be about anything WordPress/web related (social media, SEO, useful plugins/themes, business practices, code practices or tools, etc.).
