Each month we (along with Exygy and Automattic) organize the San Francisco WordPress Meetup which is a local gathering to discuss all things WordPress. It’s conveniently held just a few blocks away from our office at Pier 38 and topics typically vary from “What’s your favorite plugin”, “WordPress in the cloud”, “Speed geeking”, to name a few.
This past Meetup’s topic was, “What’s your favorite WordPress theme” and we had six different presenters showing off their stuff. As usual, we had a great time but what was really special was that some of our customers stopped by to chat. On top of that, our friends from Page.ly attended and they put together a video of the Meetup highlights which includes some footage from the AppThemes team.
This weekend is the San Diego WordCamp which we are proudly sponsoring. We’re even giving away a free Samsung Galaxy Tab to one lucky attendee! Shannon and myself are heading down today (actually in the car stuck in LA traffic writing this now) and will be there thru Sunday. If any of you are attending please come by and say hello. We’d love to chat with you!
P.S. If you’ve never been to a WordCamp we highly recommend going. They’re community-organized events and usually held on the weekend and a great chance to network with other WordPress folks.
