This Monthly Meetup is generally targeted towards users who are using WordPress (or looking to learn about it) for Blogging and Content Management.

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.
