  • WordPress 5.0 is around the corner (Q and A Time)

    Roam Buckhead

    It's been a long time since we've done a Meetup, but we now have a space to meet! Roam is donated the space and we should be meeting at the one on Piedmont Road in Buckhead each month (We might have to change to the Dunwoody location if there is a conflict in scheduling, but that is unlikely). In July, we'll be talking about WordPress 5.0 that is being released in August; we'll probably do a demo of the beta and definitely discuss what to do when 5.0 is released. Update: We'll have a panel tonight for Q and A. On the panel will be Brad Morrison, Daniel Swain and Aaron Reimann. There should be 3 hour validated parking for all, but this is a new space, so show up a little early to make sure you can find parking. https://meetatroam.com/locations/buckhead/
