  • Friday nights at 7:00 p.m. will be our weekly open house, meeting, and project night. We may start a bit early for members that want to know what we are planning for upcoming events, board meetings, etc. but we will try to get it out of the way before the night officially begins at 7:00 p.m.
    Keep an eye on MeetUp to see what events will be coming up. We may be having movie nights, build nights, PPPRS team sign ups and building, community out reach events, and more. Don't forget Maker Faire is coming up and we'll start planning for that fun event!

    Join us for an introduction to Object Oriented Programming in PHP and WordPress.  We'll take a brief look at theory: Why should you be using OOP? How does it benefit you? Why is it a good choice for the community? And then we'll get our hands dirty and create a WordPress plugin using OOP techniques and software design patterns.  You'll even get the source code and the plugin if you want to try them out on your own sites.

    This talk is geared towards people who have built (or attempted to build!) WordPress Themes and Plugins. We'll assume a basic, but not advanced, level of PHP knowledge.  Can't wait to see you!

    Networking begins at 6:30 and the presentation begins at 7:00.

  • What's in a name? Apparently a lot when it comes to UX.
    How many times have you been in a meeting and someone throws out the word "design" and you just know everyone sitting there has something absolutely different in their mind on what that means to them.
    This meeting we are going to discuss vocabulary, and how we can get everyone in the room to agree what things mean when a project starts.
    Maybe this? Maybe something like, or maybe we need to come up with our own.
    Should be a great discussion to get the rest of the year going.
    If you, or someone you know, would like to lead a meeting this year, just let me know. We keep all of our meetings interactive, so make sure everyone can participate.
    Thanks! See you there
