Looking for help with a stubborn WordPress issue that you just can’t figure out? Maybe you just want to come down and hang out with other WordPress people. No matter your experience level, join us for an informal (in-person) HelpDesk night where we learn by sharing WordPress techniques and experiences helping each other.

This is a give-and-get MeetUp: Give some help and get back from others, even if you don’t have much experience with WordPress.

Following the helpdesk hour (5pm), we will also host an educational session:

WordPress Operations Basics (6pm)

This talk is a great overview of the best practices for starting and maintaining a successful WordPress website application.

In this talk we will stay at a practical high level while covering the core topics in:

  1. Hosting and WordPress Platform Options
  2. Setting Up WordPress
  3. Functionality from Themes and Plugins
  4. Publishing Your Site (Adding Content)
  5. Maintenance and Ongoing Support

You do not have to be a developer or have previous experience with WordPress or websites to get value from this talk.
You may be a small business owner, writer, marketer, artist, or other person interested in having a website.
You may/not already have a WordPress website.
