WordPress Lab on the Lake 5-13: WP Installs, Configurations, Theme Design

  • This location is shown only to members

Update - Google Maps is showing the address slightly inaccurately. (Garmin GPS has it right).
Here's a Map with the corrected address location Starting in May we are starting to offer "Labs on the Lake". These will be hands on interactive labs covering many different topics. You DO need to bring your own laptop. We will provide free wifi and power. Seating is limited which is why we are keeping the number of attendees low. We will repeat some topics on multiple days so that more people can attend. This week we will kick off our first Lab on the Lake covering the following topics: WordPress Installation WordPress Setup and Configuration WordPress Theme Design You can come and relax in a Jelly like meetup. Brett Bumeter will be working as the mentor to help guide people through the above topics. If you are only interested in 1 topic, that's fine, these will be work at your own pace, with help and guidance as you need it. Come prepared to DO SOMETHING! This will not be a talking head sessions. :) Those are good, but these labs will be hands on training/learning/development sessions. The start time is 1:30 - getting organized and setup 2:00 pm actually starting the Lab 4:00 pm Ending the Lab, break down and head out Some of these events will be broadcast on the internet, with more details to come. Future events will cover plugins, strategies, monetization, business planning for website owners, and website planning for business owners and much much more. The Labs on the Lakes will not be strictly limited to WordPress topics, but WP will be one of our primary tools of choice. *Fees will vary on these in the future based on topic, demand, costs and other issues, but we will look to keep these as cheap as possible!

    A couple people have asked about the $5 fee and if it could be paid via paypal. Meetup.com allows things to be set up with a binary choice of Amazon or PayPal. I'm not particular either way in terms of preferences. I went with Amazon because in Meetup it is a little more streamlined than PayPal. Contact me at [masked] to pay w paypal or send the fee & reference this meetup w the link the date of the meetup. Limited space, so I have to stay on top of manual rsvps carefully :)

    Hey everyone, I've talked to several of you about this idea and I want to thank you for your great feedback so far! There seems to be a lot of interest in this concept and I'm looking forward to evolving it as we go into the summer. Most of these will be scheduled during the week. We'll be publishing a larger more traditional meetup shortly as well as we work out the next date. In the meantime, you might also take a look at the upcoming WordCamp in Raleigh!

Refunds offered if:

Additional notes: I will provide a refund less any fees from PayPal. We are trying to keep this cheap and practical. The location is covered, but open air. Dress accordingly, & bring drinks for yourself.

Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.

Regardless of the refund policy set by the organizer, Meetup may issue refunds on an organizer's behalf if we determine that Meetup's Payment Policies have been violated.
