    Confidential (not so much) to Eric (god of venues), Aaron, Paul and the rest of this group: Columbus WordCamp not only has its site up for end of July but also is telling folks they want speaker submissions by March 30. Guess we ought to start thinking about STL ... I'm just about to leave a nearly identical note in the other group.

    Question: Do we want to have a separate meetup group for WordCamp organizers? If so, we can do it at my house in U City. Perks: Wifi and Keurig.

    Just a friendly reminder for those new to this meetup: it will be technical. There are actually two meetups happening monthly now: 1. those that want to learn how to use WordPress
    2. those that want to develop plugins and themes for WordPress.

    This is the 2nd on this list.

    Re next time: I would be willing to willing to give a session on using Selenium (see seleniumhq.org) to test/verify WordPress sites. I can't make it tomorrow, but you might discuss to see if there is interest.

    After a discussion with Paul, we are going to split the database discussion into two topics. I'm going to start by going over the tables and some basic CRUD methods. Paul will handle another discussion (on another date/time) on enterprise database best practices.

    I don't really know how to use my current word press page...but I don't mind learning about the other options it has.

      Cynthia, you might want to check out the other Wordpress meetup at GoBrandGo, it covers more general topics for new and intermediate users.

    Sadly, March 11 is our anniversary. Actually, I'm very pleased about that - and planning a wonderful dinner at a great restaurant. But as geeky as my DH is - fighter-plane control systems and all - I don't think I can drag him to a discussion of SQL database tables, ON OUR ANNIVERSARY. Even in that lovely British lilt.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
