6:00 PM: HELP DESK
Looking for some help with a stubborn WordPress issue that you just can’t figure out? Maybe you're an experienced developer and looking to just give back to the community. Maybe you just want to come down and hang out with other WordPress people.
All experience levels welcome. This is a give and get meetup, give some help and get back from others - even if you don't have much experience with WordPress.
Bring a laptop so that you can get online and participate.
7:00 PM: PRESENTATION BEGINS
