    I'd also be interested in meeting. I'm a graphic designer, and I build most of my clients' websites in WordPress. I'm often looking for programming help.

    Instead of sitting around and talking about how awesome WordPress is, any interest in building out a simple web project over an afternoon?

    Here's an idea I've been mulling...
    I put together the city's site for the Google Fiber Project over a couple days last year, I'd like to do something similar for Burlington Telecom.

    http://chattanoogagig.com/ <- BT needs a flashy site like this attract businesses and local subscribers to our telecom. Wouldn't need to be anything special, and the main point would be funneling traffic into BT. In addition, there's a referral promotion that BT runs, so we could make some money putting this together.

    Open to other ideas too...

    I'm busy as hell at the moment, but could spare 8 hours on to nerd-out with a couple like-minded folks. Always looking for complementary collaborators to ease my workload, this seems like a great way to figure out who's good at what.

    I'm keeping an eye on this thread, definitely interested in getting together if we can get a few more peeps, or something fun to build.

    Little late to the party, but did you guys ever set anything up? I'm in Rutland County, and would definitely be interested in a centrally located meetup for Vermont WordPress folks.

    Ya im wondering the same thing. I just moved to Burlington and spend a good amount of time with WordPress. I can arrange a conference room at office squared in down town Burlington if people are interested in getting together. Just reply on this thread if you are interested.

    Anyone interested in meeting on 8/23, 6pm at Office Squared for an hour to meet and greet and plan something?

    Hello all,

    I posted a message on here and when I checked back, it disappeared for some reason. I'm an illustrator/designer working at home and part-time at a local print shop in Middlebury, VT. I've also been researching on whether to use WordPress or a third party application to reconstruct my website from scratch.

    Honestly, I don't know much of code since I'm used to the WSYISWYG mode, especially that I just acquired Freeway Express 5.5 a few months ago.

    I go to Burlington time to time when I can and used to live up there.

    Cheers,

    -A

    Howdy Pilgrim, I saw your first message and then it disappeared. Strange... Anyway, fair warning - building a custom website with WordPress is very different than coding HTML pages in a WYSIWYG editor like GoLive or Freeway Express. The good news is there's a lot of inexpensive hosts where you can get setup quickly and cheaply and experiment with it. But be prepared for a learning curve.

    Hey everyone -

    Just stumbled onto this group. Nice to see there's a bit of WP in Burlington. I'd also be interested in a meetup. I'm a fairly knowledgeable WP developer/designer - i build most of my sites in WP these days. Always interested in networking, i'm also interested partnering w/ the right graphic designer web-focused, but print work is a plus.

    Pilgrim, maybe we should talk more.

    tanmccuin,

    Yeah, WordPress seems to be pretty neat. However, I'm now using another blog engine instead of WP for my site. Even though, I do some graphic design, I'm mostly an illustrator myself doing digital and print based work. I do some design work here and there digitally for various projects and one with an old friend of mine for the iOS/Android gaming platform.

    To be honest, I don't code :). Although, I should try to learn some of it some time to enhance my website over time. For now, I'm just starting from scratch with my site.

    I currently live in Middlebury if I did'nt mention it before but am familiar with Burlington since I go up there weekly. The last time I was up there was for my art show/exhibition at SPACE Gallery for the Art of Horror. Great fun.

    Jackson, I do agree that coding is different on WP and right now I'm using SquareSpace which is somewhat less of a hassle to allow me to focus on my creative endeavors than spend so much time coding, coding and coding when I should be doing other things :).

    -A

    EDIT: oh and feel free to reach me if you need to talk. Cheers!

    There doesn't seem to be much going on here in the northlands but I'd be willing to help start a meetup if anyone was interested.

    Reply with days of the week, times, and or topics that would be of interest.

    So WordPress Vermont...

    How about a meetup?

    I've got a conference room that we can use. Plenty of space, wifi, TV, whiteboard.. etc. It's perfect for a meetup.

    The address is 77 College Street in Burlington.

    Anyone interested in a meetup let me know. I'm just throwing a time out there, how about 4/2 @ 6pm? I'll bring beer.
