With all the other great WordPress Meetups, there is lots of fantastic content (which you should check out on the website (http://www.arizonawp.org)), so here is what you can expect from our meetups...
Our focus is to help beginners to power-users with:
• Fast/Convenient/Easy ways to work with WordPress (and still do it right)
• What to do once you have a site (i.e. how to get people to your site, a.k.a. marketing)
Of course, we are here to help you get all your WordPress questions answered too.
Introductions: Who are you? What are you working on? What brings you to the meetup?
Open Forum — This is the time to ask your questions, share a new favorite tool/plugin/website, blog or twitter feed you follow or tell us about an upcoming event
Mark Rudder - Adobe Xd design tool
Mark will share some videos highlighting features of the new Adobe Xd app/webpage design tool.
Adobe Xd helps you layout and design your app or website quickly and easily.
After the layout/design is complete, easily share your design concepts with a designer, or use it as a guide to building the site with a page builder.
If you know Illustrator, you can use Adobe Xd.
It comes with with prebuilt UI components for fast prototyping.
The good news: it's free from Adobe or part of an Adobe CC account.
Brandy Lawson - Oxygen Builder
Brandy will share her experience with the new Oxygen Builder tool.
Oxygen was designed from the ground up to be a complete site builder and not reliant on themes, so it's far more powerful that the competition. Oxygen's templating engine really does allow you to design every part of your site - headers, footers, content, any taxonomy, and any post type.
General networking, chit-chatting, cleanup, and head out.
Elevate closes at 9PM, so we usually head over to a local restaurant for some snacks, beverages (adult and otherwise) and more great conversation.
