A few tips for meetup attendees. Say these to yourself before you attend:

“I will always greet you so you know you’re in the right place.”

“I will not condescend to you when I’m explaining things.”

“I will make room for vulnerability; admitting you don’t know something is hard.”

“I will make sure you’re invited to the table.”

“I will shed light, not heat.” from https://josepha.blog/2018/11/20/making-the-most-of-your-wordpress-meetup-experience/

Comments from our attendees:

“Thanks, Alex and company for a great session. It was helpful to get some answers and see what other WPers are facing.” Tim H.

“Thanks for your help at the Meetup! This is the first one I’ve been to that is so genuinely focused on helping people solve the challenges they are having with their site. Everyone got a chance to share what they wanted fixed and Alex and other people helped solve the issues. It was good to see all the brainstorming and the solutions! I would highly recommend going to this Meetup.” Heather M.

“Great to see practically all members contributing to solve problems. Perhaps one day soon, this newbie will have something constructive to contribute as well.” Heinrich D.

COFFEE & CODE!!!!

COFFEE & CODE!!!!

Sunday! Sunday!! Sunday!!!

Veterans of the group know what's-what. However, if you're new, follow these simple rules:

1) Show up at ANY time between 12:30 PM and 5:30 PM and for ANY length of time.

No pressure to have to arrive at a specific time or stay until the end.  If you're a keener, you can even show up earlier and stay later; it's totally up to you!

2) Bring a project!

It can be a game, a website, or a learning resource you're using to learn how to code.  All levels of expertise are welcome and I strongly encourage you to ask questions, exchange ideas, debate coding practices, or whatever tickles your fancy.  Come ready to chat or come with headphones so you can concentrate 😉

3) Keep it casual.

We're meeting up so can meet fellow coders and have fun coding in a group (because, let's face it, coding by yourself isn't always fun).

Hope to see you all there! Happy Coding 🙂
