  2. ColumbusWPMeetup| Third Thursday every month www.meetup.com/wp-columbus/ www.wordpress.org ABOUT WORDPRESS WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it. (More than most commercial platforms.) It also means you are free to use it for anything from your cat’s home page to a Fortune 500 web site without paying anyone a license fee and a number of other important freedoms. SO IT’S BEEN AROUND FOREVER, RIGHT? Not really. WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPLv2 (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. b2 was launched in 2001, WordPress in 2003. 2

  9. ColumbusWPMeetup| Third Thursday every month www.meetup.com/wp-columbus/ Where Does Our Meetup Fit? Some meetups are specific to skill/interest (users, developers, theme designers, etc) while others are general interest groups that touch on all topics around publishing with and developing for WordPress. For Beginners For Power Users For Developers Practice your skills by helping others, sharing what you know, or meeting up with other devs to work on projects. Every month, we will offer a separate group for those who need a walk through of basics. We can’t cover everything in one month though! Attend on a regular basis to sharpen your skills. Ask for specific subjects; be prepared to ask for help on specific projects. We are planning presentations by core contributors, and WordPress community members from outside Central Ohio, too. 10
