Today the first WordPress Meetup in Fort Wayne happened. For a very first event, it came off rather well.
Over a dozen people gathered at the Northeast Indiana Innovation Center and spent a couple of hours discussing their WordPress sites, expertise, likes, needs, and so forth.
The group ranged from the earliest stage beginners to folks who have forked WordPress or coded a WordPress site from scratch (who needs a theme, anyway, other than as a starting point). Lots of people had published multiple sites, some for business and some personal. In other words, a good mix.
The Meetup was organized by the crew from WPCandy.com and MC’ed by Ryan Imel (at the podium above). We looked through a bunch of our sites, shared notes on plugins, and left the beginners with a full notebook of ideas to research.
The Meetup will be a regular event, held at 1:00 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the Innovation Center. You can stay in touch at WPFortWayne.com.
Maybe I’ll see you there.
