    Help Save CubeSpace 

    Dear Portland WordPress-ers:

    CubeSpace needs your help now. They’re in financial emergency due in part to the actions of their unfriendly landlord, US Bank, and must raise enough funds by Wednesday the 27th to avoid eviction.

    Over the years, CubeSpace has become a cornerstone of our Portland technical community. Through their generous donations of time, space, services and resources, they’ve helped make the groups you belong and the events you go to possible. CubeSpace’s support of the WordPress community was key in making WordCamp Portland happen as well as the beginning of the WordPress User Group.

    Please consider making a donation so CubeSpace can keep its doors open. Consider the various free or cheap events you might have attended at CubeSpace… consider how much those events were worth, and consider if you might be able to chip in some of that value at Eva and David’s time of need.

    For details on the situation and how to donate, please see http://savecubespacepdx.com/

    Please spread word of this to others in our community.

    Thank you.

    May 14 Meeting Agenda – Plugins, Questions & One Free Pass to OSBridge! 

    We’d love to see you at this month’s Portland WordPress User Group meeting tomorrow at Webtrends. We’ll be talking about plugins: the good, the bad and the ugly. Come prepared to talk about the plugins you use and love, or share with us the plugins you may have flirted with – but it just didn’t end well. Plus — are you a plugin junkie? How to tell you might be heading for trouble.

    We’ll also get an update about September’s WordCamp conference from Aaron Hockley, and get a preview of the conference space itself. We’ll leave time for questions – I know one member will want to talk about a way to use WordPress to handle calendars, event registration and PayPal integration.

    And if that’s not enough of an incentive? We also have a free Open Source Bridge conference pass to give away to one lucky attendee, plus discount registration codes for everyone else. (Of course, you’ll have to be there tomorrow night in order to win and/or get the registration codes.)

    Meeting details as follows…

    When: Thursday, May 14th. 6:00-7:30 pm
    Where: WebTrends (map)
    851 SW 6th Ave # 600
    Portland, OR 97204
    Meeting details: Calagator
    RSVP on Upcoming

    Please join us!

    Early heads-up: next month’s meeting (scheduled for Thursday, 6/18) will be at Open Source Bridge – we’re going to take over the Hacker Lounge at 6 pm!

    May PDXWP meeting 5/14 at WebTrends 

    (This is a ‘save the date/time/location’ announcement only – look for more details about the topic/agenda as the day grows closer.)

    Last month, we agreed to move our regular 3rd Thursday meeting up a week to avoid conflicting with a WebVisions party. We also wanted a chance to get a closer look at the space where Portland WordCamp will be in September.

    Well – (in the words of our late unlamented fearless leader): Mission(s) Accomplished:

    When:
    Thursday, May 14th. 6:00-7:30 pm
    Where: WebTrends (map)
    851 SW 6th Ave # 600
    Portland, OR 97204
    Meeting details: Calagator
    RSVP on Upcoming
