Sadly, I have yet to be able to make it to one of the scheduled events due to prior commitments whenever these Meetups have been scheduled; this coming event is no exception but I would have to agree with Tina about moving it to 3p....plus adding in any travel time for those of us that don't live in that area.
On another note, I also agree it would be helpful to break the class into two parts; beginner and developer as was suggested. I'm in the beginner group and can only imagine how frustrated the experts would be suffering through the basics. =) I am so looking forward to being able to attend one of these Wordpress Meetups.
Making every moment count,
