WordPress Meetup Hits Vegas!

Last week while attending my first Vegas Jelly event at The Beat Coffeehouse, I knew immediately that I had found what I’ve been trying to find for a long time; a place to host a regular WordPress meetup group. After exchanging a couple emails with the owner, I knew we were in business. Food, beer, central location, free WiFi and a place that’s happy to have us… Yep, this is what I’ve been searching for!

That being said, I’m very excited to announce…

WordPress Meetup – August 11th at The Beat

The when: Thursday, August 11th Wednesday, August 10th- 7pm to 9pm
The where: The Beat Coffeehouse – 520 Freemont St, downtown Las Vegas (inside the Emergency Arts building) – Map it
The what: An evening of WordPress, presentation and conversation

The plan is to run a monthly event on the 2nd or 3rd Thursday of each month. I’ve created a Facebook group where I’ll keep everybody up to date on when the event will be each month. If you have a WordPress site and need some help, know a bunch about WordPress and want to share some knowledge or just want to come out and talk about one heck of an awesome CMS, come on down! And, of course, if you know somebody who might be interested, send them the link or just drag them with you.

Presenters Welcome

My plan is to have a 10-15 minute presentation each month followed by some casual conversation. If you have an idea for a presentation, let me know and I’ll get you on the schedule for an upcoming event.

Like I said last week, the Vegas Tech Scene is on the rise. Jelly, Ignite, WordPress meetup and I think we’ll be hearing some news about WordCamp Las Vegas pretty darn soon. Stay tuned!

    I knew you’d love The Beat! Glad you followed through and put it together. Only problem for me is that I’ll already be in San Francisco for WordCamp and another conference. I’ll definitely catch the next one.

    BTW, what are you doing for accommodations at WordCamp SF?
