Winnipeg WordPress Meetup

I’d like to have an informal get together with my fellow Winnipeg WordPress nerds and nerds-to-be sometime in the beginning of November. Mainly a social evening where we can get together over some good food and talk about Themes, Plugins, tips, and tricks—you name it, as long as it has to do with WordPress. We can also talk about doing something more regular in the future. Total beginners and hardcore power users are both welcome.

What do you say, Winnipeg? Are you in? Leave a comment here and let me know.

  1. I would like to go but will need a ride. Ian, is there any chance you can pick me up on your way. I’ll email you my parent’s address if you can. Also if it’s in the morning, my mom can make us breakfast before we leave. Can’t wait!!!!

    Thanks, Phil “P to the F” Fry

  2. Hi Ian!

    I hope the meetup went well. I see on your Twitter timeline that you had met on Nov. 8th.

    I’m a big fan of WordPress, and I just started a LinkedIn group called WordPress Winnipeg. Please join and notify the members of future meetups.

    Talk to you soon!

  3. Hi again Ian,

    I’d like to do a WordPress-related presentation or two at this year’s Winnipeg Code Camp, and was wondering if you and/or anyone else would also like to do one.

    I’ve emailed one of the organizers asking him whether it is still possible to join the event, so pending a positive response from him, we could plan the presentation topics and outlines at the next Winnipeg WordPress meetup.

    The Winnipeg Code Camp is historically a .NET-centric event that I’ve attended each year so far, but I remember D’Arcy talking last year about how he is happy that the Ruby community joined the event last year, and how the event is not intended as a .NET only event.

    P.S. My long comment reminds me of the Comment Auto-Grow plugin I recently discovered: http://scribu.net/wordpress/comment-autogrow

    1. I’ve got a reply from D’Arcy, and there is only one spot for a presentation left, so I reserved it. I will do the presentation unless someone else would really like to do it. I don’t mind if someone already has a really good presentation, especially since I don’t even have a presentation yet. Otherwise I am looking forward to the opportunity to present the CMS/WordPress way to a room full of MVC-oriented software developers 🙂

      I will bring this up at our monthly WordPress meeting, and try to get some ideas for how to go about the presentation.
