Good-faith rules that were created by a group of volunteer meetup organizers: 1. WordPress Meetups are for the benefit of the WordPress community as a whole, not specific businesses or individuals. All actions taken as an event organizer are with the best interest of the community in mind. 2. Membership in the local meetup group is open to all who wish to join, regardless of ability, skill, financial status or any other criteria.
3. Meetups are volunteer-run with volunteer speakers. In cases where a modest attendance fee might be necessary, this fee should only cover the costs of the meetup and should not be used to pay speakers or organizers.
4. Meetup groups allow events to be organized by any reliable/trusted member of the community.
5. Meetups are welcoming places where everyone works to foster an accepting environment which is free of discrimination, incitement to violence, promotion of hate, and general jerk-like behavior.
The WordPress open source, free software project is the community behind the application you know and love. Powered by volunteers around the world, you can get involved at http://make.wordpress.org .
Our guest speaker will be Brad Morrison, founder of GoWP
Brad will be discussing the importance of ongoing website maintenance and steps to take once your site is live. He'll talk about updates, security, backups, monitoring and tools that can help.
Brad has over 20 years of web experience, is the co-lead organizer of WordCamp Atlanta and coordinator of the North Fulton WordPress Meetup Group.
