Metro Detroit WordPress August 2012 Meetup: Followup and notes

From: Deborah E.
Sent on: Tuesday, August 14, 2012 11:02 PM

Hi all,

Thanks to everyone who came out for the meetup last Saturday at the Detroit Public Library. Special thanks to all who persevered and found our new location in the Friends Auditorium. We had a last minute change in room location at the library.

Shoutout to our speaker Tim Yow for his presentation on WordPress and SEO. I know several members commented on Meetup how much they learned from Tim's talk and their plans to implement changes to their site.

Read the notes from the meetup.

View the slide deck from Tim's presentation.

The "Three Things About WordPress" included:

  1. WordCamp Grand Rapids is the weekend of August 18-19. Tickets are on sale now at
  2. WordCamp Detroit is Saturday, October 6 at the Madison Building in downtown Detroit. Register today at
    The event has two simultaneous tracks, one for users and one for developers. Admission includes a free t-shirt, lunch, and access to the exclusive rooftop after party. We're currently seeking submissions for speakers.
  3. Last week at WordCamp San Francisco, WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg spoke on the State of the Word. Matt highlighted the past year's successes and discussed the challenges WordPress faces. Read the recap of Matt's talk by Ryan Imel.

See you at next month's meetup,
