Details

The last two months have been developer focused, so this month's main session is for beginners. However, we'll also have something for advanced users... read on...

MAIN SESSION:

What's the difference between Wordpress.org and Wordpress.com? Why would I choose one over the other? I love the idea of Wordpress but where do I start? If you've found yourself puzzling over these questions then this meetup's for you. We'll discuss themes -- what they are and how to get them. We'll delve into the basics of plugins and widgets and unlock the secrets of the Wordpress Dashboard. With this step by step approach we'll get you going in the right direction.

GENIUS BAR FOR GENIUSES

This month's Genius Bar is for advanced users. Let's get together and talk hooks, filters, debugging, jQuery and whatever else you want to discuss.
