WordPress Helpdesk Hour (5pm)
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.
Preview of WordPress 6.1 (6pm)
Tonight we’ll preview the best new features coming to WordPress 6.1, which is due for release in November.
