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 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 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 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.
