Women-Only WordPress Meetup

Hello, ladies! This meetup is just for you! Bring your laptops, bring your questions, and bring your projects - we'll get together to discuss WordPress, answer questions, show off what we're doing, and help each other out. All levels of experience and expertise are welcome.

We'll use the meeting room at the Green Lake branch of the public library. The library does have a parking lot. Food and beverages are allowed in the meeting room.

Sorry, men, but only women and people who identify as non-male are invited. If you're wondering why we're having a meetup that is only for women, here is an explanation: http://womenofwp.org/2014/03/why-women-only-tech-events-are-a-good-idea/

    Thanks for organizing the event, Morgan. By the way, I talked to "J-Kelli" she does a a great job explaining "complicated" into understandable.

    Hello Ladies, looking forward to it. I'd like to know about your favorite plugins. I am just starting to use woo themes and commerce.

    I felt so much more comfortable in a women's only setting. That was a great idea!

    Great meetup! I learned a lot to get me started setting up my blog.

    Such a great group of ladies! Thank you so much for helping the 'brand spanking new' girl! :)

  • Morgan K.

    Thank you, ladies, for making this such an amazing event! People kept thanking me for organizing it, but all I did was get you all in the same room. It was your good humor, your enthusiasm, and especially your willingness to help each other that turned this into one of the best WordPress events I have ever been to.

    I will turn this into a monthly event. The time and location seemed to work out well, but please let me know, either in comments here or by emailing me (morgan at wpalchemists dot com) if you want a different time or place.

    Planning to come tomorrow (my 1st WordPress meet-up!) Curious to know how important it is that I bring my laptop. Is this mainly a space to get hands on with WordPress or to discuss stuff with others?

    May 16, 2014

    • Liz A.

      Actually going to have to skip this one. Was really excited to meet other Designer/Devs working with WordPress - so hopefully I'll be able to make it work next time!

      May 17, 2014

    • Morgan K.

      Bummer! Hope to see you at the next one!

    The room where we are having this meetup doesn't have many outlets. The meetup is only 2 hours long, so most of us probably won't need to plug in our laptops, but if you have a spare power strip lying around, it might be a good idea to bring one, in case lots of people need to plug in.

    I'm also very excited to attend. I'm a total newbie to WP and trying to manage a site I had set up. Reading a WP book is just not quite working for me. Looking forward to meeting others and picking up a few ideas.

    May 16, 2014

  • Sheila H.

    I'm SO excited to attend this. I'm eager to meet you all. Especially Kelli from Headway who I've emailed with many times. And Viv I've used GF a lot. Would be happy to show some stuff there. Is anyone coming from Capitol Hill? I'd love to carpool. Parking there will be terrible.

    May 16, 2014

  • Carla C.

    Hope to be there next time.

    I'm not able to attend this weekend but just want to add my +1 vote for having more women-only events like this. Thanks for organizing it, Morgan!

    May 13, 2014

  • jolenejang

    I might be able to, thanks.

    May 12, 2014

  • Lourdes Sampera T.

    Shoot! I can't go. I love this group! Morgan, you're a gem and ladies (attendees) - I'm amazed at your talents and how you genuinely assist us beginners!

    May 12, 2014

    • Morgan K.

      Bummer! We'll miss having you there.... but hopefully you can make it to the next one!

    Anyone have experience using GravityForms.com? I would love for someone to show me some examples. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around where the information goes. We are looking to replace this online registration form which was done in php. The fellow who did it does not have time to keep it up so we are back at the drawing board. http://vivilo.us/1nplktW­

    Looking forward to seeing you all. Thanks for organizing this Morgan.

    • Ama

      Hi gravity forms is great - a bit of a learning curve but you can create some really good really robust forms with it.

      May 8, 2014

  • Kimberly G.

    I use Wordpress for my blog, but I'm not familiar with it beyond that - would this be a good event for me to learn more? Thanks :)

    April 30, 2014

    • Morgan K.

      Absolutely! There will be women there of all knowledge levels - new users up to advanced developers - so we'll definitely be able to help you learn anything you'd like to learn.

      April 30, 2014

    • Viv Ilo V.

      Kimberly, you will love this group. It is probably worth the drive. I will be attending too.

      May 8, 2014

  • Carol T.

    I would love to go but I can't make this one. Please have more!
