I don’t know anything about WordPress, do you offer Beginner Training?
A lot of folks have been asking about Beginner WordPress training. It’s pretty hard for us to do those kind of courses/classes/instructions at our Meetups, because they can’t be done usually in under 2 hours which is what we usually schedule for our Meetups.
Some of the absolute best resources for beginner level, “learn at your own pace” WordPress instruction are available at Lynda.com. This one by Morten Rand Hendricksen provides probably the best introduction to WordPress essentials, then you can round out with other videos on WordPress at Lynda.com or ask for us to do Meetups that touch on specific topics:
MOST library systems have an arrangement with Lynda.com that allows you to login with your library card and you can watch anything in their content library for free.
This is Hillsborough County Library’s Portal for Lynda.com:

Hope that helps!
I need a WordPress developer/designer, who do you know?
If you’d like to post your scope of work to our support channels, there are bound to be qualified local people to eagerly jump on your project for you.
We’d like to sponsor TBWP, how can we help?
We currently operate as an informal organization. If you’d like to help us out we can always use help in the following:
- Finding and securing space for 20-80 members for meetups (donated venues)
- Refreshments for our members (paid directly by sponsor)
- Swag for members (paid directly by you)
- Freebies/Giveaway (if you have a WordPress-related product or service)
How much are you getting paid to organize this group?
None of our organizers get paid– we are all volunteers. We simply love our community. WordPress is free software and this is our way of giving back. No sponsor dollars flow through us directly. Sponsors pay for perks directly.
