WordCamp US is coming up on Friday, October 1! It’s online and free, but you do need to register in advance. If you haven’t already registered, you can do so here: https://us.wordcamp.org/2021/. You can see the schedule here: https://us.wordcamp.org/2021/schedule/. If you haven’t been to a WordCamp before, it’s a great learning opportunity with talks for a variety of levels. And when they get back to in-person, they’re great events for networking as well.
In this meetup, instead of a speaker, we’ll have an open discussion going over the talks and answering questions. What talks did you like the most? Was there anything you didn’t understand? This is also an opportunity to hear about anything you missed, whether you had a scheduling conflict, or there were concurrent sessions you were interested in and could only choose one.
Note: This will not be at our usual location, it will be an online event using Zoom. If you don't already have an account, you can sign up for free at https://zoom.us. You can download the desktop software, use a browser extension, or download the mobile app. If you haven't used Zoom before, please get set up and familiar with it in advance. We recommend you upgrade to the latest version. If you're using the desktop software, you may need to check for upgrades manually.
For added security, the Zoom link will not be public. You must RSVP to see it.
Along the bottom of the Zoom window, there are buttons to mute/unmute yourself, enable/disable your video, and access the Participants, Chat, and Reactions panels.
We encourage people to converse in our Portland Slack group for general WordPress discussion at any time. You can join here: https://join.slack.com/t/wpportland/shared_invite/enQtNDIwMDY4MTQzODYyLTI4ZTcyMzVjOWRhNjI0YTNmNDg2NGI1N2I3Yzc2ZGI1NDg3NjQ1N2ExMzlkZDIzNDQxM2FmY2E0NWQwZGQ3YzM
