Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

WordPress KC co-organizer, Karissa Skirmont, will cover the ins and outs of how to improve the appearance of your WordPress website/theme and better represent your brand.

We will be covering...

• How to customize the theme

• How to bring the colors of your logo into the rest of your theme

• What is a favicon


• Issues you might have uploading your logo


• Fonts and why sometimes they are too small


• What the H1, H2 etc tags are really for (hint: its not to make text bigger or smaller)


• Where to find royalty free graphics to use on your blog posts (and save yourself from getting a $7,500 demand letter)


• And more

This Meetup is good for WordPress users of all skill levels, especially beginners - since working with a pre-made theme is usually the first step of building your website. We will not be setting up or installing WordPress at this Meetup.
