WordCamp Planning Meeting

Planning Meeting and Call for Discussion Leaders

For those of you local in the Portland area, several of us will be gathering this Thursday, July 17th at 6:00pm at the Green Dragon (928 SE 9th Avenue, Portland OR). We’re going to nail down some details on registration, scheduling, speakers, and facilities/logistics. All are welcome; volunteers are needed.

A basic schedule framework has been developed which includes a couple large-group (everyone) sessions, a few more specific sessions for a targeted audience (developers, writers, etc), and some community-organized sessions to be determined during the event. We’re actively seeking those who want to lead a discussion. If you have an idea for a session, please contact Aaron Hockley with your idea. Any topic related to WordPress could be a potential WordCamp session.

More details about the schedule and registration should be released next week.

[Full details at http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/1490606/ ] Our next Beer and Blog will be at Fireworks Restaurant & Bar from 5-7PM. We’ll be having our first topic going over how to start your blog. We’ll discuss how to setup a Blogger site along with setting up WordPress. There probably won’t be enough time to go over all of the steps, but we’ll try to cover the basics at least. Make sure you bring a laptop so we can even help get you started on the spot! Wireless is available there, but it is locked with a key.

Fireworks was also kind enough to provide a pizza and beer special for us! They’ll have $3 pints and all you can eat pizza for $5. Thanks Ocean for setting that up!

End Bloglessness 3
Webtrends

That's right, time to End Bloglessness, AGAIN! Whoo-Hoo! Gather up your friends, family, or any one else you can think of who has been looking to start a blog and come join us! Sunday, October 4th from 12:00-5:00pm

Format

Each session will be 1 hour: 15 minute presentation and 45 minutes of assisted help. During assisted help, attendees can raise their hands to get help from one of our assistants. Assistants are folks from the Portland tech scene that have done this process before who can help you with your questions.

Agenda

* Session 1 - Sign up for your blog 12:00-1:00pm;
* Session 2 - Dial in the settings for your blog 1:00-2:00pm;
* Session 3 - Intro to posting on your blog 2:00-3:00pm;
* Session 4 - How to promote your blog 3:00-4:00pm;
* 4:00-5:00pm will be an open help time to ask help with anything you'd like.

What to expect

We are focusing on WordPress blogs for this workshop. We chose WordPress so that if your blog is going well enough and you need to graduate to a hosted blog, you're data and experience will be compatible. By the time you leave the workshop, you'll have a blog that is ready to go and some direction on how to connect with other local bloggers. We are expecting people from all skill levels, including the technically challenged. Everyone will be treated with respect and will be encouraged. We'll be hosting the event at Webtrends. There are some computers available to use, but we highly recommend bringing your laptop if you have one as there likely won't be enough computers for everyone. Help us get the word out!

Most of the people we're hoping to reach are either to far outside of our social circles or are offline completely. We could use your help in letting people know about this free workshop to get a blog up and running. We don't care if your motivation to blog is personal, professional, or political; we'll help you get one up and running.

* Tweet the link to this page http://bit.ly/ufsYL
* Email this page to a friend
* RSVP on Upcoming and Calagator
* Tell someone in real life using your voice. Crazy, huh?

Why is this free?

We're hoping to make new friends and be good citizens. We don't want to be an insular group, so we want to enable others to join. And, because we're Portlanders inspired by other Portlanders to DIY and that Yes We Can. :)

Help out

If you have experience with installing WordPress, we'd love to have you help answer people's questions. Please leave us a comment below if you're interested in helping!

Portland WordPress User Group: Aaron Hockley, "After Launching a Couple Dozen Blogs, I Figured Out how to Do it Right."
Webtrends

The name of Aaron’s talk is “After Launching a Couple Dozen Blogs, I Figured Out how to Do it Right.” Aaron presented this talk at WordCamp Seattle, and has done several blog posts around this theme as well.

Aaron Hockley is experienced at starting new WordPress blogs, including his highly successful SocialPhotoTalk site. Even if you’re an experienced blogger, if you’re thinking about starting another blog (and who isn’t?), Aaron Hockley has great information for you.

We’ll also have time for networking and socializing. If you’ve got questions about WordPress 2.9 (actually, we’re already up to 2.9.1), someone might be able to help you!

As usual, we’ll be at Webtrends, 851 SW 6th Avenue on the 16th floor. We usually get into Webtrends right around 6:00, but if you come later than that, just let the security guard know that you’re coming to the WordPress meeting and he’ll punch in the elevator code for you.

Hope to see you there! Please let us know on Upcoming if you’ll be attending.

OCCA Meeting - Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Red Lion Hotel Portland - Convention Center

Scott Hanselman will be presenting WebMatrix, a new free tool from Microsoft that allows you to create, customize and publish websites that can grow with you, from design and installation to deployment and maintenance. It is one of the simplest tools for creating web sites that has come along in a long, long time. To get started you can select an application from the built-in gallery, containing such applications as DotNetNuke, Umbraco, WordPress, Drupal or Joomla. Or you can create your own masterpiece from scratch, written in either PHP or ASP.Net.

Scott has made presentations to the OCCA before, and has always been well received and appreciated.

Scott Hanselman works out of his home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this, for over 6 years, he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree. He was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and he'll speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.

Portland WordPress-Dev Meetup: Vagrant, Your New Best Friend
Lincoln Building

Jeremy Felt will be talking about Vagrant at our next meetup:

Development environments are not often one size fits all. While having a LAMP stack available on your local machine is great, having access to the many variants in the wild is better. Working with many variants and being able to sandbox them away from your operating system is the best.

In this session, we'll show you how to replace common development environments like MAMP or XAMPP with the much more versatile Vagrant. You'll gain access to a world of various development options while simultaneously keeping your computer clean. When you walk out the door, you'll have a wonderful local WordPress development environment running nginx, mysql, php-fpm and memcached -- or anything else you want -- so that you can better develop for the technology in use on the web today.

And don't worry, this session is operating system agnostic - Mac OS X, Windows and Linux can all be friends with Vagrant.

Wordpress Meetup: Planning a Successful WordPress Site
Lincoln Building

It always saddens me when people come to me near the end of a project, deadline looming, with a site that has clearly gone off the rails and ask if it can be fixed. The answer is usually 'not without starting over'.

In this session, I'll provide a blueprint for investing your time and money wisely to end up with a site you love that is also useful, effective and easy to manage. I'll talk about finding a good developer, asking the right questions, and what you as the site owner should be prepared to contribute.

Speaker Bio

Kronda Adair is an independent WordPress developer who loves helping people make their sites better. She's spoken at Open Source Bridge, Wordcamp Portland, and recently gave an Ignite talk titled, Stop Making Senseless websites.
