Who: Anyone and everyone with an interest in design / development of WordPress
What: WordPress Developer Group of Ottawa (WDGO) Pub Night
When: Tuesday July 7, 2009
Where: Shoeless Joe’s (3049 Carling Ave) in Ottawa, ON
Why: Connecting with the WP Community in Ottawa – and booze :)
Wordcamps are great for networking with a wide cross-section of the WordPress community. However they don’t occur frequently enough in the same geographic region to build a local community around. Towards that end, I am taking small steps towards connecting the WordPress community in my region of Ottawa, Canada.
Starting a regularly scheduled meetup in July probably won’t get much uptake as it is a challenge to get Canadians to give up their precious summer nights as we have a finite amount of warm weather north of the 49th parallel. But we do like to drink! So the first Ottawa WordPress Developer Group event is going to be an informal pub night at Shoeless Joe’s (in front of the AMC Theatre on Carling).
The hope is to better understand who is doing what great things with WordPress in the 613 area code and what they would like to give / get out of WDGO.
