This is a past event

16 people went


Join us for our monthly Topanga WordPress Meetup. All users are invited to attend this meeting to share, collaborate and discuss all things WordPress.


PART I: QA with Konstantin Obenland

We are thrilled to have Konstantin Obenland (http://beer.obenland.it/), beer blogger and theme wrangler for Automattic (http://automattic.com/), join us for an informal QA session. Please think about what questions you'd like to ask Konstantin with topics that can include the full range of what WordPress has to offer! :) Please come prepared and bring your questions to make this session as fun and productive as it can be.

PART II: Unconference Style Meetup

At WordCamp Oregon (http://2011.portland.wordcamp.org/schedule/what-is-an-unconference/) the organizers sometimes do things a little differently. A few years back they ran an event that was an "unconference". Why would anyone attend a conference that isn't a conference you may ask?

"It is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants.”

In the spirit or WordCamp Oregon we'd like to approach this part of the Topanga WordPress Meetup the same way. We will leave this part open to the group and see where we go. We can have short presentations if people want to share a project they've been working on, a plugin they love, or anything they feel enthusiastic about that relates to WordPress. We can also break into smaller groups if people want to work on or discuss more specific topics.

Please bring $5 to contribute towards pizza if you like. We will meet for 2 hours at the library in the main meeting room.

PART III: Canyon Bistro Post Meetup Decompression (Optional)

Afterwards we will reconvene at the Canyon Bistro (http://canyonbistrotopanga.com/) (walking distance) for some time to socialize and continue our discussions. The Canyon Bistro is located south of the library at 120 N Topanga Canyon Bl Topanga, CA 90290, just next door to the library. NOTE: if you plan to stay for the Canyon Bistro you might consider parking at Pine Tree Circle (https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF-8&q=topanga+pine+tree+circle&fb=1&gl=us&hq=pine+tree+circle&hnear=0x80c2a1dc71e0dee1:0xd581ed00f744ff4d,Topanga,+CA&cid=0,0,15813254765378268351&ei=E4a3UYmkCebOiwKYqICgCA&ved=0CJsBEPwSMAM) as the Library closes it's parking garage at 9pm. (The library is just north of Pine Tree Circle and the Canyon Bistro).

The Topanga Wordpress Meetup Group meets on the third Thursday of every month at the Topanga Canyon Library (http://www.colapublib.org/libs/topanga/).
