The Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota area has web users, builders, and developers too! Maybe there’s a little bit of distance between us . . . but that just means it is more important we get together now and then! So let’s DO IT!
Our very first WordPress Meetup will be Thursday, February 2nd, at 6 pm at the Glendive Public Library’s Community Room. We are going to have a get together every month and will let you know here when we get the dates ironed out.
Who should attend?
If you have a WordPress website, you want a website of some kind, or you build WordPress websites for others, please join us! Basically, this is for anyone with an interest in WordPress, the open source software that powers the fun 25+% of the Internet! The official WordPress.org description says that anyone who loves WordPress is welcome. Heck, this is Montana and we’ll welcome you if you are just curious about WordPress!
WordPress Meetups are places for WP folks to get together to learn about WordPress in a casual and comfortable environment.
Shane Bishop of EWWW IO fame, Jane Wynne of WynWeb, and I decided we should get this started. Our first meeting will be a little organizational and a little educational. We’ll have at least a couple of quick talks on WordPress topics. Some will be for beginners and some for more advanced users – we’ll aim to have something useful for people of all levels.
Tentatively, we are looking at the following talks:
- Shane Bishop on the changes in WordPress 4.7.
- Shane also introducing his plugin/service EWWW IO which is made right here in Glendive!
- Kristin Aus on some topic of use to beginners
Obviously we’d love to hear from anyone who is interesting in coming to this or future WP meetups. You can also sign up at Meetup.com – WordPress.org has paid for our use of that. Here’s our page: https://www.meetup.com/Glendive-WordPress-Meetup/.
There is NO charge to attend. We are committed to keeping these get togethers free and open to everyone. We’ll even try to have some munchies and coffee. Don’t plan to be able to make supper out, however. 🙂
If you want to bring your own pop, please be polite to the library and bring screw top bottles.
While you can absolutely just show up to the meeting, we’d love to hear from you in advance. Please use this form to send me (Kristin Aus) an email and I’ll pass it on if you have questions I can’t answer.
