    folks, i wrote up the notes in detail, with links, then andrew couched them in an intro post, and they're on the pdx wordpress site, here — http://pdxwp.com/2012/09/27/byte-size-workshops-recap/. always best to have a bit of patience and keep refreshing pdxwp.com for new news. ;) also, taylor dewey posted his slides from his typography talk here — http://tdd.li/pdxwp-2012/assets/player/KeynoteDHTMLPlayer.html#0

    and jen unrain posted the slides from her wordpress workflow tools talk here — http://www.slideshare.net/jkunrein/wordpress-workflow, and her links are in a post of her own here — http://onehundredfortywords.com/2012/09/24/tips-for-wordpress-workflow/

    Got off to a slow start. I should have picked a different group to work with. I joined the "new users" group and didn't get much out of it. I don't know a lot about WP so I thought it would be good to fill in the gaps. I can honestly say that if I didn't know as much as I do, nothing they said would have made sense to me. As a class for beginners, I think there was too much assumed prior knowledge. I would also recommend that the presenters polish up on their public speaking skills. Everyone was super nice, and very helpful, but the lack of organization and insufficient planning was a distraction for me.

    Are there notes from the new users workshop? I couldn't make it tonight.

      A lot of it was Q & A but I can write up some notes tonight and post them at andrewspittle.net. The plan is also to do a new users workshop like last night on a regular basis. Perhaps every 3 months or so.

    This was a great event. One of my favorite meetups that I have been to. Kudos to the presenters, I really liked all three. The ideas for generating lots of angles for a topic to form new blogging ideas was great. So simple, yet I think this will help me alot. And I learned some handy new plugins and extensions. And finally, I have been learning lately about typography, and the third presenter was so convincing I actually went straight to powells and bought the book he recommended.
