Make the web work for you by using tools to automate things you do every day.
Elliot Christenson will be giving a little demonstration of IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/dashboard) and other tools that can be used to automate web processes. It'll be a brief, tip-filled presentation, so if you are new to web automation tools, come ready with questions and note-taking!
This is really easy - probably beneath most of you - but it's a nice easy way to tiptoe into 2014.
The best content comes from smart, busy people - and those people can spend more time making great content if they can spend less time worrying about the grunt-work.
Elliot will demo the setup for IFTTT on the web920.com (http://www.web920.com) website, for instance. If we don't make the machines our slaves, the Matrix will never happen. How boring would that be?
Please invite your friends to this - even non-WordPress (or even "web") experts can gain. "Geeks" and "Noobs" alike should benefit from discussing automation!
Matthew Straub from the AvenueHQ (http://www.theavenuehq.com/) has been generous to open up his coworking space to us for free after the meetup. If you want to work with other awesome WordPressers (& other awesome non-WordPressers) I highly recommending working from the AvenueHQ for at least a little while after the meetup.
