Lets try a clinic after the lightening talks: we'll have a 4G connection, so you can demo any challenges for the group.

Volunteers please for lightening talks. Just a few slides and a couple of minutes, sharing something interesting about wordpress and websites.

Ben's volunterred to talk around Underscores, which is a decent framework for developing custom layouts.

Adam's talking about what worked and didn't work on a recent project.

I'll offer opinions on QuickSprout's ( writing style.

Even better would be your opinions of why some websites, pictures or articles do or don't work.

As you know, Adam has a marvellous projector and laptop. Please send slides to Adam, anytime up till 6pm on the 12th will work.

Usual format, unless someone suggests a different format:

1: Everyone briefly introduces themselves: 20 second max.

2. Up to 4, 3 minute pitches: requests for help, discoveries, other useful events, announcements. Perhaps could be a lightening talk instead.

3. Enlightening talks.

4. Clinic: Adam will bring a 4G connection, so anyone who would like to share a challenge might get sympathy and perhaps a solution from the group.

5. Discussion of topics/speakers for future meetings.

6. Beer, chat, discussion.

Looking forward to the meeting.
