Update 3/27 (day before) We will be covering 'How to Create a Custom WordPress Theme'
No programming or web design experience is necessary. Bring your laptops if you've got em, this will be a hands on guided or mentored tutorial type of a session. :)
I'll be demonstrating my preferred wordpress theme design software (http://softduit.com/products-reviews-and-tutorials/wordpress-theme-software/) for this, you can check it out before the meetup and/or download a free trial if you like (not required by any means) However, the design environment and the resulting theme files will definitely help people understand what goes into a wordpress theme design.

With the creation of the Charlotte Area WordPress Enthusiasts group, we hope to host regular events at rotating locations around the Greater Charlotte area and in Charlotte itself. The events will be designed to cover topics of interest in small focused working groups. The goal of these events will be to help attendees get hands on experience at the actual event, while peers or mentors are on hand to guide them.
The topics of these events can include:
Learn How to setup WordPress,
Optimize it for Search Engine Performance,
Design Custom Themes,
Deploy or modify free themes,
share best practices & tips,
meet other WordPress users and network,
Learn how to earn money from your web publishing efforts for yourself, your business or your group or organization.
We're new so please don't hesitate to ask or suggest more ideas!
