    August 22 Re-Cap 

    Thank you to all who attended the August meeting!

    For more information about WordCamp Portland (and tickets), visit http://wordcampportland.org. They’re especially looking for volunteers and sponsors right now. You can also follow WordCamp Portland on Twitter.

    Thank you to Benjamin Kerensa for talking with us about O’Reilly Media’s user group program and Ubuntu Oregon (we also have video of this portion of the meeting). I’ve submitted a group application for the user group program, and will hopefully have more to share by the next meeting.

    We’re currently looking for speakers and meeting topics for upcoming meetings. If you have ideas or leads, you can either leave them in the comments here or on the Meetup.com discussion board.

    Thank you, and Happy WordPressing!

      I still feel like I’m new at WordPress and would like to have a discussion about best WordPress practices, both designers and developers. Those insights that keep you from wanting to drive over your keyboard and then back-up to smash it again.

        I’m not sure that the urge to destroy peripherals ever completely disappears:)

      Kathleen, you are a rock star for all the hard work you’ve done in helping to get this group rockin’ and rollin’. Thank you so much for everything you do for us.

      Another link to add to resources is the much requested article on WordPress Tips: Exploring the WordPress Text Widget. It was requested at the previous meeting as well as this one and I just made time to finish it. Thanks to everyone for the inspiration and kick in the butt to get it done.

      Hi, I’m a local website designer/developer who has been working primarily with WordPress over the last few years. I am interested in teaching some courses about best WordPress practices, customizing a WP site, use of plugins, etc… for the non-techie WP user. I stumbled across this site while doing some research and thought someone on here might have some feedback for me.

    Join us August 22 at 6:00 p m… 

    Join us August 22 at 6:00 p.m. at Nedspace Downtown!

    Benjamin Kerensa from Ubuntu Oregon will tell us about book review opportunities through O’Reilly Media as well as Ubuntu Oregon partnership opportunities.

    We’ll hear from members of the WordCamp Portland team about sponsorship and volunteering (tickets are available NOW, by the way!).

    We’ll also have unstructured time for networking and information-gathering. We do have a request for information about WordPress security (i.e., keeping your sites from getting hacked), so if anyone has good information about that, we’d love to hear from you!

    RSVP on Meetup or Upcoming.
