What we're about
Our meetups are for people who want to learn about Startups, WordPress, blogging and online marketing. Every person, family, business, group, club, or organization should have a website. WordPress is a free open source product and it allows you to build your own website. Our monthly meetups will appeal to you Do-it-Yourselfers who want to get a WordPress website launched. This meetup group is dedicated to providing you with an environment that’s supportive, productive and fun.
Each month the meetups will include a demonstration on the hottest widgets and plugins for WordPress. You will learn how to customize a WordPress theme and you'll learn how to add pages and pictures to your website. You'll get advise on how to find online video tutorials to learn more and how to get the most out of WordPress.
Meet other entrepreneurs, free-lancers, professionals, bloggers, and everyone in between. Talk with other professionals and find out how they are using WordPress for their business. Come to a meetup and watch your WordPress web skills grow!
Our meetups are packed with information and the two hours go by fast! The first hour is dedicated to you learning a new WordPress skill and the second hour is reserved for questions and answers and networking. You do not need to know HTML or any coding. You should have basic Internet skills, like emailing and how to search Google, to really get the most out of our Meetups. Bring your business cards to pass around. Please join us!
