  1. Thanks for the last meetup on WordPress. It actually inspired me to set up a WordPress site on a hosting account I have that was gathering dust and even install and start playing with a shopping cart plugin. Do you know of any local groups that focus on PHP/MySql/Wordpress? Thanks, James Messick

  2. @James, I’m glad you enjoyed the meetup. I don’t know of any groups in the area as active as ours. You’re always welcome to come and ask questions on any topic or send messages to the mailing list.

  3. Hi there,

    Always good to see people spreading the love of WordPress (as per the open source philosophy I guess).

    Unfortunately for me I’m in the UK. Any chance you would start pod/videocasting these? I know you could embed a Ustream account into your own WordPress site to do it live!

    Subsribing to your RSS now ;)


    • @AFD, I’d love to record the sessions and make them available online. There’s been a lot of good energy lately amongst the group members so hopefully we’ll find some people willing to record the sessions.

  4. Greetings
