What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
This is a new WordPress Meetup for those who are DIY (do-it-yourselfers). You may be a beginner, you may be an experienced blogger, you may maintain your own site that someone else created for you. This group will meet on the last Saturday of each month. We hope you can join us and will spread the word. There's plenty of free parking at the Wallingford Senior Center. GUEST SPEAKER: TBD FAQ: It says that the Senior is Closed, will you still have the meetup? Yep! I have a key and will be there setting up when you arrive. Do I have to bring a computer? Only if you want to show examples to the group to help facilitate the discussion or better explain an issue you're having. The map shows downtown Seattle, where is the location? Please join us at the Wallingford Senior Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, #140 (lowest level), Seattle, WA NOTE: if you are a professional creating sites for clients please join our Freelancer Meetup on the first Thursday of each month 10-12 AM.
February's Meetup will have a guest: Derek Morse of CPASeattle, talking on business taxes in 2019. Do you make your living using WordPress to create websites for other people’s businesses? This new Meetup is for you! We are not about themes or plugins, rather we'll talk about aspects of having a freelance business based in WP. We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation. We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking. PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users. Use this link to join the Seattle WP Slack Group (https://wpseattleslack.wordpress.com/) and then you can interact with the group in the Business Channel. We post all our Freelancer minutes on our website at: https://wpseattle.org/category/freelancers-meetup/ Please join our new FaceBook Group as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wpseattle
Come hang out with other WordPress users, designers and developers and contribute to the WordPress project. Note: this is not an educational meetup - it's about contributing. If you're looking to learn WordPress or get help with a project, check out another meeting on the Seattle WordPress Meetup calendar (http://www.meetup.com/SeattleWordPressMeetup/events/), but if you'd like to contribute to WordPress, we'd love your help. No previous experience needed – you just show up and we'll help you find something to do. You can see an overview of different contributor teams at make.wordpress.org (https://make.wordpress.org/). We'll be working on things like: • Documentation • Support • Subtitling videos for WordPress.tv (bring headphones) • WordPress Core Hope to see you soon!
