Where? Elevate Coffee Company (http://www.elevatecoffee.com/) in the Norterra Shopping Center at Happy Valley & I-17.

**Our location is generously sponsored by: Defiant Inc., Makers of the WordFence Security plugin (https://www.wordfence.com/).**
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

Updating Your Website
Updating your WordPress site, along with the theme and plugins,
is critical to keeping your site healthy and alive.
However, what do you do when updates go wrong?
Brian will share how to restore your site if an update breaks it,
and how to recover from the Whitescreen/500 error.
He will also share good update practices every site owner should be doing on a regular basis.
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.
