Howdy there! If this is your first time here you might not know that I organize a monthly WordPress meetup in the wonderful hometown of the Cheeseburger aka Pasadena. You can find more info on our meetup page.
We’re gearing up for our next General WordPress Meetup, folks! Are you ready? The anticipation just does me in every time. I’m sure you feel the same, too!
Let’s kick this thing off right!
About the Venue
We’ll be back at Epic Spaces in Pasadena once again. They have a spacious and vibrant space in the Pasadena Playhouse District. They’re welcoming us back with open arms and we’re pretty fortunate to be hosted by them. Last month some of you received passes to check the space out and work on your own. They host a variety of networking events, which you can review here.
June’s meetup is being graciously hosted by the good folks at Epic Spaces, in the Pasadena Playhouse district!! Yes, THE EPIC SPACES!!!
Epic Spaces just opened a year ago and they have a beautiful space for people to come in and do work. They have all the stuff you might need like offices, desks, collaborative spaces. What about bonuses? I’ll tell you about bonuses. Their staff is super friendly, they have amazeballs wi-fi. Oh? Not convinced it’s awesome. Well, Epic Spaces even has their own Otoño Lujan and Mr. Pasadena. No other space can make that claim unless someone invented lunch guns and cloned human beings. To my knowledge, neither of these things exist!!
Let’s make sure we thank the awesome folks at Epic Spaces for hosting us FREE OF CHARGE by raising local awareness and talking with their awesome staff about what we all do. You can thank them in person or on Twitter @EpicSpaces1
About the Pasadena WordPress Meetup

When is it?
Tuesday, June 14, 2016
Who can attend?
We welcome attendees from all backgrounds and experiences to come and participate. If you want to learn about WordPress and have questions; please attend. If you know all there is to know about WordPress you are welcome to attend because you are cooler than cool!
For the first hour we do a round table format of Q and A about WordPress, so please bring your questions. This is also a great opportunity to share your knowledge with others. Everyone that attends is expected to ask a question or answer a question. You’re taking time to show up, so please, please, please get involved!!! I mean that! Your participation keeps this community going and growing.
The second hour we network and it’s also a time to help one another with in-depth help regarding questions they may have. Exchange numbers and emails; meet someone you don’t know!
• Is this a place to talk about my services and products I sell?
No. There are networking groups specifically for that. We’re not one of them.
• Is there a charge to attend?
NO! The only thing we ask is that you participate and be welcoming toward one another. It’s a safe space to learn from one another.
• Will there be food and/or drink?
No. Make sure you eat and hydrate yourself. Do you know how hard it is to learn on an empty stomach?
• Is this group right for me?
Personally, I think this group is for everyone. Some people feel overwhelmed by the sometimes (and sometimes often) technical/advanced nature of the questions posed. That’s okay. There’s a lot of that. But everyone of any skill level is encouraged to ask a question, no matter how “beginner” the question may seem. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t know the material discussed. Feel free to ask questions. The group is meant to empower and encourage.
• What if I know the answers to all the questions? Can I answer all of them?
There are a lot of smart people in this group who show up ready to help and answer beginner and advanced topics alike. Please encourage and allow everyone to lend their voice to the conversation, too.
