August Pasadena WordPress Meetup

Wow. August! That went by somewhat quickly, huh? Crazy!

Well this is the last general meetup before WordCamp Los Angeles! Did you guys get your tickets yet? There's less than 100 left for sale. So get yours before it sells out. Definitely an event not to miss!

As you may know this meetup is focused on the roundtable Q/A format with time for networking and one on one discussion after.

If you plan on attending this meetup have questions in mind. Be ready to share you knowledge or most vexing problems. WordPress users of all stages will be on hand to help you out
