Launched in the Fall of 2018, the Kingston WordPress Group is bringing together WordPress enthusiasts of all types, whether you are a designer, programmer or end-user; beginner, intermediate, or advanced.
We host free meetups the third Thursday of every month that address topics aimed at:
• Beginners or people who are not familiar with WordPress
• People using WordPress for their business and websites
• More experienced users who want to do more with WordPress
• Technical-minded developers, designers, and freelancers
Regardless of how you use WordPress, our Meetups are sure to help you get the most out of this amazing open-source software that is used by over 30% of the world's websites. As a community, you will always find someone at our meetups willing to support you with your next WordPress challenge or project whether that's a site for your new business, your personal blog or corporate sites you manage for your customers.
We would love for you to be a part of our welcoming, active and enthusiastic group. Please join us and come to the next event!
We also generally put links to meetup slides or other resources in the Comments Section for specific meetups - just click 'past' to get to a list of past meetups and then click into the specific meetup you are looking for.
September means back to school for WordPress users too! To start off our new year of Meetups, our first session on September 19 will be dedicated to getting started in WordPress. Whether you are in need of a refresher, an aspiring blogger or a business owner needing to get online, this session will give you the tools to get started. In it we will cover:
- Registering your domain name & choosing a host
- Installing WordPress
- Choosing and adding a Theme
- Adding your content (Classic or Gutenberg?)
If you don't yet have a site, this session will be your ideal starting point. If you already have a site, it will be an opportunity to fill in the gaps or ask those nagging questions.
We hope to see you there!
p.s. Many thanks to the Venture Club for the venue!
