Attend our next meeting to learn more about WordPress, meet other WordPress users, share ideas, projects and other information.

There are 2 meeting tracks:

  • The "Beginner" track, usually meets the first Wednesday of the month.  This track includes beginner WordPress topics and general topics like SEO.
  • The "Not Beginner" track, meets on the third Wednesday of select months.  This track is all the talks that are too advanced for the beginner track, ie. anything that is "not beginner". That also implies that the talks may not be advanced either, and talk levels do vary from talk to talk. Some prior knowledge of WordPress is expected though.
