Small group discussions

  • Dec 6, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

There will be small group discussions. We will split into 3 groups, with different topics to cover a variety of interests and technical abilities. Each group will probably have between 5 and 10 people. The group leader will start off by sharing his experiences on the topic, with the opportunity for other group members to ask and answer questions. Topics for small group discussions: 1)
Making Your WordPress Site Social: group leader
Bruce Robinson 2)
Pros and Cons of Using Theme Frameworks and Child Themes: group leader
Chris Olbekson 3) To be announced (will most likely be beginner-oriented)

    I really appreciated the openess of the feedback. I hope that we can continue to make this a great experience for everyone that attends. Obviously, we can't do that without some help and/or feedback from the group. I know there's still room for us to improve and I know we will with each meetup. Glad to see so many interested folks!

    The small group I was in had a great exchange of ideas and questions about how to use WordPress plugins, themes and core features. One attendee suggested a set time period and I agree. It would be nice to have each group report the main points from their group time. Our group met upstairs and the acoustics were much better than the lower floor. A group note taker could help share the discussions with the whole meetup.

    I really enjoyed the small group discussions. A time limit in each group would have had the nice benefit of getting to see other presentations. I think at the next meetup a networking icebreaker (unrelated to wordpress) in the begging would be nice. This would help to begin to foster a family environment and allow people to start to really get to know each other.

    Having developed a child theme, let me put in a plug for Chris' topic (frameworks and child themes).

    I'd be pleased to present on the topic, "Making Your WordPress Site Social." I'd make the presentation beginner-intermediate but it would spark conversation among the pros.

    @Jenia: I would classify as intermediate but I could make it Pro or more beginner orientated.
