August Geek Gather

Here we are, August, and time for another Geek Gather. Sorry it’s late this month, but with all the conflicting schedules it’s getting harder to find an agreeable date.

Come join us at Wilde Roast Cafe. The food is good, the desserts are delicious.

We’ll take over the parlor room, if possible, but they haven’t responded to my email yet so who knows. Otherwise, just find the group that doesn’t make any sense and it’s probably us.

WordPress Complete 2.7+ Book

April Hodge Silver, here. I’m new to Geek Gather, having lived in the Twin Cities for just 3 months and attended 2 Gathers so far. And now for some only slightly shameful self-promotion:

wordpress_bookJust last month, my first (and possibly only? Time will tell) book was published by Packt Publishing. It’s called WordPress Complete 2.7+ and replaces an earlier version of the book from 2004. I rewrote this book from the ground up.

I thought the Geek Gather crowd might be interested in knowing about WP Complete, which covers a wide range of topics, from how to install and using the wp-admin all the way to the basics of writing themes and plugins. There also a whole chapter on using WP as a CMS for a regular non-blog website.

If anyone is interested in reading the book and writing a review on your blog or website, or for, let me know and I can get you a free copy.
