The East Bay WP Meetup had a party in honor of #wp15, the 15th Anniversary of the launch of WordPress. In addition to the cake, balloons, and stickers, we grouped together to improve our meetup space by adding felt pads to the feet of the heavy metal chairs in the cafeteria.

Meet the Members of the East Bay WordPress Meetup
People come to the East Bay WordPress Meetup (and to WordPress itself) from many different backgrounds. We welcome you no matter what your race, age, gender, sexual orientation, or coding experience.
What We Do
Every month the East Bay WordPress Meetup brings together both newbies and experts to talk about everything WordPress.
This meetup is mainly for people who build WordPress sites for a living, though we welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about how to use WordPress.
If you have a suggestion for a meetup topic or would like to present, contact the meetup organizer.
Meetups last 2.5 hours and usually follow the following format:
- Quick demo by a meetup member
- Open Q & A
- Main Presentation
Once each year we hold a Contributor Day where members of the group contribute to WordPress
Meetup Notes & Handouts
During our lively Q & A, we talked about backups, security, editorial workflow, memberships, the Genesis theme framework, and the Underpants Gnomes’ three-step profit plan.
During our open Q&A in November 2017, we talked about everything from local development environments to SEO sitemapping tools.
Our small but mighty Contributor Day 2017 team decided to put the Gutenberg Test Site to use and test the new Gutenberg editor. (Special thanks to SiteDistrict for hosting the test site. If you missed Contributor Day, you can still use the test site.)
