My involvement in the WordPress community has been rapidly expanding since late 2015. After attending three WordCamps and two Meetups, I can confidently say that I’ve found a supportive and knowledgeable group that can and will hold me accountable for my goals – both professional and personal. If you are thinking about getting involved, but don’t know where to start, there are some great events coming up in northeastern Ohio and southeastern Michigan areas.
WordCamp Columbus Take Aways
Stow, OH Meetup
Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 7:00pm
North East Ohio was well represented at WordCamp Columbus for both Speakers and Presenters, but not everyone could make the event. This month’s meetup is to bring the knowledge back home. What did you learn at #WCCbus? How did it feel if you were a speaker? What worked? What didn’t?
Getting Started With Child Themes
Westlake, OH Meetup
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 7:00pm
Are you tired of searching for themes that perfectly match all of your needs? Are you ready to get started with the development side of WordPress? Child themes are the perfect place to start.
We will discuss the difference between custom themes and child themes and the benefits of using a child theme. Get an inside look at the template hierarchy and the required files. You will leave with basic child theme setup & troubleshooting knowledge.
WordCamp Ann Arbor
WordCamp Warm Up
Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 6:30pm
[WordCamp Warm Up] is going to be a fun event where old time attendees will welcome you, introduce you to others, and make sure you are introduced to attendees with similar interests and who would love to share the experience with you.
This activity is designed to help take the pressure off and allow you to meet new friends and have a few familiar faces when you arrive to WordCamp on Saturday.
Spots are limited for WordCamp Warm Up, so register now!
WordCamp Ann Arbor
Friday, October 14 – Saturday, October 15, 2016
WordCamps are casual conferences that are local in nature. Topics cover everything related to WordPress and include things such as blogging, coding, branding, and security.
I will probably be attending each of these events, so be sure to say hi! 🙂
