WordPress Meetup!

Posted June 17, 2004 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Development.

To clarify, there are meetups happening all over the country, not just in San Francisco. Go to the site and enter your zip code to see one near you.

As you may have heard, you can now meet up with people in your area also cool enough to use WordPress, an activity that is being coordinated at wordpress.meetup.com. Be a part of history as the very first WordPress meetup ever is not this Saturday but the one after that, the 26th. Saturday, June 26 @ 4:00PM, mark your calendars!

As fate would have it I will be in the San Francisco Bay area and I’ve signed up for that city for this meetup. (I voted for the Borders.) I’ll be happy to talk about super-secret future WordPress plans, Pingomatic, GMPG, anything you guys want, but more importantly I’d love to meet SF WordPress users and hear what you have to say. I’ve opened up comments on this post, so leave one if you’re in the area and coming to the meeting and I’ll add your link to this post.

  1. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend, however, I am very much psyched to hear about it and see what others thought. I will be waiting patiently while you guys do that =)

  7. I can’t make it but I’ll be having a wordpress meetup in Austin and swim party on the same day. Details will be here.

  8. I signed up and voted, but then got this:

    Unfortunately, fewer than 3 voted for a venue. Our experience
    shows, too often, only a single person might show up if so few
    people vote for a venue.

    As a result, your Meetup has been officially cancelled this

  9. You SF people better give up the goods that Matt gives you … remember, the ICBM was largely developed in Huntsville, Ala., in a place just a few miles down the road from me. I mean bidness! 😉

    Too bad I’ll be out of Huntsville this weekend, or I’d arrange one here. I have enough friends that are WP users that I could populae it easily.

  10. Are you guys having a get together in santa cruz, CA. I am at UCSC and i am sure there are a lot of wordpress users around in this area. If some thing is planned or there is sufficient interest send me a couple of emails and i will be more then happy to take care of some of the small arrangements that need to be made.

    The stevenson cafe at UCSC seems to be a great place to hang out. they are open for the summer so there wont be too much crowd editer

  12. Thanks Erica. Even if just a few people show up it’ll still be a blast. I’m really looking forward to it.
