New WP Advanced Meetup Group

From: Damon S.
Sent on: Tuesday, July 2, 2019 11:04 AM

Hi everyone -

I just waned to introduce myself and provide a little more information about Maria's recent message relating to the advanced group at the next meeting...

I'm Damon Sharp. I'm currently a WordPress Developer at Kanopi Studios, a distributed company with employees in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico that work with a variety of Drupal and WordPress clients, providing both new builds and support initiatives. Maria reached out to me (along with Phil Faciana, Ben Keith, Tim O'Haver, and Michael Clyde) to ask if we would help facilitate a more advanced meeting for those in the group that are looking to learn more about, or get help with, advanced/code related topics pertaining to WordPress. By no means is this meeting meant to be exclusionary in the sense that if you don't know how to write code you can't attend, but we also want to keep the topics and discussions to more of the advanced level. We feel that the normal WP meetup covers the beginner to intermediate topics well, but was missing a meetup pertaining to advanced topics.

We will be holding our first Advanced WP meeting for those interested starting at 6pm on July 11, just before the normal meetup. We might transition this to a virtual meeting as well for some months, but that's still up for discussion. I'm also setting up a Slack channel for the advanced group to discuss topics. More information on that is forthcoming. We don't have a specific topic for this first meeting. We'd just like to get together and meet and see where this goes to start. We hope to see you there, and if you have questions, reach out. We'd be happy to answer them.

Any btw, if you're a developer with advanced skills that's looking for a new job, I honestly can't give enough stars to Kanopi, the culture is just awesome, and we're hiring. Our WP team is small and we're looking for additional team members. Reach out if you have questions on that. I'd be happy to answer those as well.

Hopefully see you on the 11th.
