Intro meetup - town hall style

  • Oct 25, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

An introductory meetup: meet and greet, decide on topics for following meetups, bring one question about WordPress that you do not know the answer for. We will convene, meet each other, and plan the tracks & topics for the upcoming meetups. One of the tracks that we identified is WP 101: independent study lab. Pick a project, identify your goal, find the obstacles and then overcome them with the help of your stufy mates. Developers, designers, marketers and people with other interests: please bring your ideas to the meetup! Also, BYOB (+snacks!) See you all there!

    Interesting and useful conversations with knowlegable people. I realize that it was an organizational meeting and my first offical "meetup" so I'll refrain from talking about my preconcieved notions. Might be useful to arrange for future meetups to have a few "break-outs" with presenters focusing on various aspects of theory and practicum.

    As it was the first WordPress MeetUp of Houston, we were all wondering where we this meeting was going, but I was glad I could share my knowledge and hopefully I helped someone out. Nevertheless, I've met cool people and it was an interesting meeting. I look forward to the next one.

    I really enjoyed the introductions and hearing all the varied backgrounds, interests, and professional activities of the people who attended. I felt a bit shy and overwhelmed when we broke up into small groups, because I really didn't know where to start -- however, I found a wonderful expert, Chris Smith, who was able to explain the solution to one basic misunderstanding I had -- and now I am off and running! {Thanks, Chris, you rock.) I also enjoyed the social aspect, and wish I had gotten around to meeting more people.

    I thought that the meetup was outstanding. Everyone there seemed to be interested in helping each other and ejoying it. If you are looking for ideas, this group has plenty - all you need to do is ask. I loved it - can't wait for the next one!

    This looks exciting. It's good to see some new faces here.

    @monica: hi.

    October 25, 2010

  • Anjuan S.

    @Christopher and @Monica: I like #wphtxmu, but, of course, I defer to whatever Jenia decides since she is the organizer. If either of you are going tonight, I look forward to meeting you!

    @monica I agree. #wphtxmu would be clear, short, and stay with the current trend/convention.

    @anjuan @jenia in the original hashtag for WordCamp we used htx vs. hou, so maybe stick with that? original one was #wchtx so maybe #wchtxmu? haha

  • Anjuan S.

    @Jenia: I tend to keep hashtags as short and simple as possible so that they only take up a small number of the 140 characters allowed in tweets. However, they should also be descriptive and easy to remember. So, I suggest #HouWPmu

    @Anjun - I'm looking forward to the meetup, too!
    No twitter hashtag as of yet. Would be #wpmeethou? #wpmuhou? No idea, do you have any suggestions?

    @Karie - thanks for the suggestion, we'll chat about where people want to meet. Depends on how many people are going to come and if we will need some privacy/wifi/etc.

    I'm looking forward to this. My blog is based on WordPress and can be found at http://www.AnjuanSimmons.com. I cover a variety of topics, but I mainly focus on technology, business, and minority advocacy. What's the Twitter hashtag for this event?

    Oh - if you're looking for suggested meeting places, the Cafe Express on Voss near San Felipe is usually pretty quiet in the evenings and they have free wifi if needed. Also, plenty of parking and good food in case anyone wanted to grab something to eat or drink as well.
