This Monthly Meetup is generally targeted towards users who are using WordPress (or looking to learn about it) for Blogging and Content Management.
Discussion about Blogging with WordPress, Using WordPress on your own sites, easy security tips, what to look for in themes and plugins when installing them, and much more. General topics will be focused more on content and basic information about plugins and themes.
If you’re using WordPress to power your blog, business site, or just want to learn more about it, then this is the meetup you’ll want to attend. You may still see some short bits of code during talks or questions, but stick with us and we’ll promise you wont drown. You can always give both this and the design/dev meetup a shot and see where you feel more comfortable (or attend both each month).
For more in-depth discussion in theme design, plugin development and other more advanced topics, check out the other meetups running every 3rd Thursday each month named the “Design/Dev” Sessions.

Volunteer Coordination Meeting
Sep 10 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Everything we do at Tech Valley Game Space is enabled by our enthusiastic members and volunteers. We are so grateful for your support, and we’re always striving to find new ways to leverage our collective energy to help the Capital Region game dev community thrive. We believe that the key to doing that is empowering all of you to take on a more active role in helping our local game development scene grow and flourish.
With that in mind, we want to invite everyone to attend our volunteer coordination meeting. Many of you have been asking how you can get more involved with our group efforts, and this meeting will be a great chance to do just that. The plan is to hang out together at TVGS, eat some snacks, have a good time and discuss ideas for how we can improve our community.
We’ll also be performing a communal evaluation of how we organize our current volunteer efforts, and gathering feedback about how we can more effectively translate our ideas into action. We’ll take a look at the existing process for tracking tasks via our Trello board, and discuss opportunities for bringing in new members to help fulfill “officer” roles and guide the future direction of TVGS.
We’ve done so many great things together, and there’s no limit to what we can accomplish as long as we remain dedicated to improving. So, let’s get organized!

Teach us! * Curious about an API or technology? Ask the group. Someone probably has some relevant experience they can share. * Stuck on a bug? We’ll try to fix it together, and maybe we’ll all learn something new. * Working on an app and want constructive criticism? We can put it up on the projector and review your UI or your code. * Not sure about the best way to approach some problem? Let’s talk about it. * What are the most successful strategies and tactics for marketing an app? Let’s share what we’ve learned.
