We've noticed our Women Who WP workshops have been very well received over the last several months, and, frankly, about half the attendees have been men! Go figure! We also noticed our Women Who WP topic meetings were not as well attended. At our last workshop, we had some very beginners attending, and everyone was getting a lot of one-on-one help with their WordPress sites.
After much discussion among the co-organizers, we determined the workshops were best meeting the needs of our IE market and, with great sadness but resolve, we dissolved the Women Who WP group and created IEWP Workshops, a subgroup of Inland Empire WordPress.
We want to thank the WWWP moms, Jen Miller and Bridget Willard from Orange County, who inspired us to start the IE chapter of WWWP in the first place. We couldn't have done it without their support.
IEWP Workshops encourages EVERYONE to attend, female or male, old or young, beginner/intermediate/advanced. Those more advanced can help the others. We'll keep the introductions and announcements minimal so you can dive right in and get some help. There is no question that is too basic. We're here for you!
We will still be meeting on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Riverside I|O at 7pm. Eat before you come, bring your laptop, bring your local server installed on your laptop (if you don't have one, we will get you set up on DesktopServer), and get ready to get or give some help. We look forward to seeing you! Wifi is available.
FYI: Make sure you have admin access to your WordPress site. If someone else set up your site for you, make sure they give you admin access. You'll need it.
