Hello fellow MeetUpians,
as we’re currently 8 days 22 hours 54 minutes and 55 seconds (according to the sidebar) away from our next MeetUp, it’s time to talk about … talks. Who wants to talk? Who knows someone who wants to talk? Who has topics or ideas?
- Workshop! Anyone?)
The last time we talked a bit about the idea of a *hands on* workshop. To outline it briefly: We would build something with WordPress together.
- What’s needed for that?)
Everybody who’s interested in doing something practical would bring her/his laptop. Preferably with a pre-installed (local) copy of WordPress  and some local server like XAMPP , WAMP , LAMP  or MAMP  – depending on your system.
- What could we do?
(A) Trying to realize *one* idea. Something like a basic blog, a magazine, etc.
(B) Trying to realize *everyones* idea. Ever had a project where you thought “I want to do that!”? We could try to wrap up concepts and build the base together.
(C) Improving and Problem solving. You got a problem and can’t wrap your head around it or always wanted to improve some part of an existing site? Let’s go on it. Let’s do it together as a group, task by task.
- What I could come up so far)
To get you rolling as fast as possible, I contacted Japh Thomposon (WordPress Evangelist at Envato/ThemeForest) if they could sponsor us some of their themes for the workshop. He promised me to help us out, but as he’s becoming a father in the next few days and I haven’t heard so far from the person who’s now responsible for this now, I’m not sure if we can rely on this.
- What we need)
+ We would need some (depending on the amount of people attending to the workshop) people helping out. Paolo, Luca and me be of some help, but when there’re more than 6-9 attendees, we’ll run out of man (or woman) power.
+ As I’m not sure if we get some themes from ThemeForst, someone would have to sit down and evaluate some themes that we could use for the workshop. This means that we will need to know if we have the workshop, who’s attending and what exactly we’ll do.
- Off topic)
Btw: Today’s WordCamp Bratislava. Anybody there? And if so any interest in sharing your experience?
