     This is a great opportunity to talk with real WordPress users of all experience.

     I can see how these events are helpful to a wide variety of Wordpress users. Personally, I'll be watching for one that is less technical and will assist those of us wanting to work within a given theme, as it is, rather than learning css etc.

     Always learn a lot of useful tips from John that can help us save time and keep our sites secure.

     I've only been once. I appreciated the clear way John shared his expertise. I did not feel stupid asking anything and he answered in ways I understood. (I'm a newbie.)

     I am looking foreward to learning more about what I can do with WordPress. Lots of ideas for my business.

     Good. Jon's talk was good; he has a silver tongue. It's very easy for experts to go too fast & too deep. He brushed on that occasionally, but the bulk of his talk was aimed at what appeared to be most of the audience. The turnout suggests there's lots of people (me included) looking for low-level help with WordPress. It won't hurt to keep things at that level.

     This is the first meetup for Wordpress I've attended, but if that's an indication of the quality of the other sessions, I'd recommend more like it.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     Seems to be viable with exception of presentation skills which a lot of WP presenters seem to lack.

     One of many important topics is disaster planning for Wordpress sites....I volunteer building non-profit and small business websites. I'm a retired programmer, and would like to find a peer programmer that my clients could turn to should I get hit by a bus.

     This was my first introduction to this group. It is important to have current info on anything web related. The info given was very useful and I look forward to learning more.

    John O. on Mar 11, 2011.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     The Wordcamp was good, but having never been to one before so I was searching for the classes I would learn from the most. The group was far smaller and the instructions on plugins gave me a lot of great ideas for my new site. 

    Douglas E W. on Mar 11, 2011.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     I've attended 2 WP Victoria events. Both had great presentations and I learned a lot about using WordPress on my sites. Thanks to those who gave presentations that were aimed at non-geeks. I see a lot of eyes "glass-over" when technical jargon is used. WordPress attracts users because of WYSIWYG editors, plug-ins, etc. WordCamps should be the same. Thanks.

    Beth D. on May 15, 2010.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     How about another meetup. Less formal this time. Willing to organize it. Anyone else interested? Suggested themes: - Step by Step: Getting Started with Wordpress - Gee I didn't know you could do that? - Imagine - Design and Wordpress- the two really do go together. - Technically speaking - the nuts and bolts of Wordpress. 

    Maureen P. on Jan 12, 2010.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     If you live in Victoria and want to meet other people in the industry or wordpress hobbyists - this group is definitely for that.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     I brought my laptop and was able to actually implement many of the suggestions of the presenters as they were discussing them. In the afternoon part of the session, my friend and I registered a domain and setup a new wordpress site to begin the development of a new business we are starting. This was likely the most productive meeting (meetup) I have ever attended.

     The more the merrier! 

    Anne F. on Nov 16, 2009.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     Great introduction to WordPress for those new to it. Always good to pick up a few new tools & ways to do things with the software. 

    Clint L. on Nov 15, 2009.

  • Victoria WordPress Events

     Knowledge sharing. Networking. Good food. But the venue was really cold.
