What we're about

This group is for WordPress Developers, Designers and Users in the Saint Petersburg area & Pinellas County. We have a mixture of small business owners, freelance developers, agency owners and creative professionals who are all enjoying making a living using WordPress or using WordPress in their business.

We have two meetups a month: a scheduled talk on the first Tuesday of the month and an 'Ask Us Anything' free-form, crowdsourcing support and project help meetup on the 3rd Tuesday. We welcome all WordPress Users, Developers & Designers, but our meetups do skew a little more towards the developers, entrepreneurs and agency professionals.

We are part of a network of WordPress Meetups in Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay WordPress ( https://tampabaywp.org ). Please check out our website for more details about other WordPress Meetups in the Tampa Bay Area.

Are you interested in teaching or doing a talk? We are always looking for speakers willing to do a talk on a subject matter relevant to WordPress, running a small business or working with clients. Contact us at https://tampabaywp.org/speakers/call/ if you are interested and we'll get you on the calendar.
