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

There are 3 meeting tracks:

  1. The "General" track, usually meets the first Wednesday of the month.  This track includes beginner WordPress topics and general topics like SEO.
  2. The "Not Beginner" track, meets on the third Wednesday of select months.  This track is all the talks that cover anything that is "not beginner". That does mean that some "not beginner" talks may not be very advanced at all, and levels do vary from talk to talk, check the talk description. Some prior knowledge of WordPress is expected at "not beginner" talks.
  3. The "Contrib2Core" track, usually meets the second Monday of the month.  This track is a series of virtual meetings to engage in contributions to the WordPress core (fixing bugs, updating documentation etc.).  It is aimed at developers or those interested in becoming developers.

Most meetings are presentations that do not require you to bring a laptop. Meetings that are "Workshops" will generally require that you have laptop, and we will have WiFi available.

WordPress learning, for everyone!
Beginners welcome!

Gutenberg: News and Views.
—————————
Gutenberg, is the new editor (and more) for WordPress. This is perhaps one of the biggest changes ever made to WordPress. Gutenberg is expected to be officially released sometime in April with release 5.0 of WordPress. It is currently available as a plugin at: https://wordpress.org/plugins/gutenberg/ for beta testing.

Tentative plans: With the impending release, it seems like a good time take a look at Gutenberg and what it may affect on your WordPress website. The plan is to have discussions and possibly presentations on Gutenberg and things you may need to to be aware of on your site before upgrading. More details to come.
