May WordPress Meetup: 3.9 Catchup Session

Mark your calendars!

May 13, 2014. 7 PM. Second Tuesday of the month, just like old times.

Canvas Cowork was kind enough to donate their space for the event. They're comfortably situated between the DuPont Circle and Farragut metro stops.

3.6 was the latest version of WordPress since we last had a meetup. We're now on 3.9, which means we have a lot of catching up to do.

Andrew Nacin, one of the lead developers of WordPress, has volunteered to get us up to speed on the latest and greatest.

The rest of the time will be dedicated to socializing and networking amongst people who may not have seen each other since last August.

There will be pizza and beer. It's going to be awesome. And we hope to see you there!

(We're also seeking out sponsors/swag providers for future meetups. Let us know if you're interested.)

Please note that for this venue, we have a strict attendee limit of 80. If you're planning on attending, RSVP soon, because this one may fill up fast.

Also, if you later find out that you can't make it, please cancel your RSVP to open it up to somebody on the waitlist.

    Is there anyone in the DC area who could give a training class on building themes from scratch? I have a client interested in training a small group of people.

    Andrew Nacin was awesome taking us through WordPress history, explaining new features and giving a sneak peek to what's to come. I really appreciate this good opportunity to learn. Thanks to all who helped coordinate!

    Sorry to late to get a babysitter. What about the ustream?

  • ghina

    Hi, too late notice to make it on time, hope it's great!

    May 13, 2014

  • J.R. S.

    So how does one get inside the building?

    May 13, 2014

  • Casey Patrick D.

    If the ustream goes down or needs adjusting ping me on twitter @caseydriscoll

    1 · May 13, 2014

  • Casey Patrick D.

    Do you guys have a dedicated tech solution already in place? I mean photos and video streaming particularly. I'll be at Canvas most of the day tomorrow, and will bring some toys if I can help at all. I'm sure there more in the community more equipped than me, but happy to help!

    May 12, 2014

    • Casey Patrick D.

      I think I have video set up as proof of concept, but I'm not certain about audio... I'll be leaving this live as I play around for the next while or so setting it up. http://www.ustream.tv...­

    Didn't think a spot would open up! Have to do work tonight unfortunately. Hope to attend next event!

    May 13, 2014

  • Brett

    I was *so excited* to get moved from the wait list to be able to attend, but I didn't think it would actually happen, so I had already made other plans. I'll definitely be there next month! Thanks for working so hard to try to get as many people from the wait list to be able to attend.

    May 13, 2014

    • Leland F.

      No worries, see you next month!

    By some miracle, I made it off the wait list.

    • Eric M.

      You're welcome, I had to pull out.

      May 13, 2014

  • Joi C

    Just when I stop paying attention, we start back up. Figures. Anywho, is there a chance we could do a google hangout or Skype for those who can't physically be there?

    May 8, 2014

    • Leland F.

      We might have something up on Ustream. Will send out an email/tweet if so.

      May 13, 2014

  • David B.

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

    Is all beer being sponsored, or are we doing the usual bring a six pack?

    2 · April 24, 2014

    • Leland F.

      Beer is sponsored but you're more than welcome to bring your own six pack. I'm just not sure about fridge continuity due to the new venue, so we should plan on consuming it all there.

      April 28, 2014

    • Anthony D P.

      Challenge accepted.

  • J.R. S.

    Any chance I could make it past the wait list? The commentary says 80 person limit. The RSVP is showing 71 have confirmed. Thank you!

    April 28, 2014

    • Leland F.

      Hi JR, I'm not sure where you're seeing the 71 number but it looks to me like 80 are confirmed + 12 (including you) on the waitlist. We still have a couple weeks left until the event, spaces tend to open up closer to that.

      April 28, 2014

    • J.R. S.

      Hi Leland, The "71 going" is right below the three hosts. However, I didn't count the multiple +1's and the hosts that came up to 80. I sure hope some spots open up. Fingers crossed. Thanks!
