What we're about

WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

The Arizona WP Group is to meet and collaborate with other local fans and users of WordPress. Gather and discuss the best ways to work with WordPress and find out the advantages of using WordPress for your Business and Personal website.

We do have an annual WordCamp in the valley so be sure to check that out and attend when it's time! -> WordCamp Phoenix (http://phxwordcamp.com)

General WordPress Meetup

👥 This is an in-person event at the new CO+HOOTS Mesa coworking space.

Want to beat traffic? CO+HOOTS is generously offering a "free fly-by" day to all Arizona WordPress Meetup attendees on the day of our event before it starts -- the only requirement is you RSVP here.

AGENDA
6:00 pm Doors Open
6:30 pm Start Meeting & Announcements
6:40 pm Modern Image Formats & Media in WordPress

Do you hear WebP and hear "web what now?" How do you make a logo look as crisp as possible? What's the difference between uploading video to WordPress and embedding a video from another website?

Understanding images is essential to a fast, performant and polished-looking WordPress website. We'll be talking about the difference between JPGs, PNGs, GIFs, WebPs and SVGs -- but most importantly why it matters which you chose and when.

Images and media are a HUGE portion of your website's performance budget and getting them right can have a HUGE impact on traffic and sales.

8:00-8:15 pm Head home or join the after-hours group

We will share the Zoom link for hybrid streaming this Meetup in the Arizona WordPress Group Slack's main channel -- if you plan to stream this event, please join Slack in advance so you can get the link.

(If you're new, typically after the event a small group will go to a nearby restaurant for some appetizers and drinks -- all are welcome!)
