EDIT: The title, description, and agenda have changed for this Meetup! We now have a presenter for this meeting.

WordPress is an open source platform for building websites. This event is the monthly 3rd Wednesday Meetup for the local WordPress Knoxville Meetup group.

WooCommerce holds the market share for eCommerce and is roughly double the next contender (Shopify, Magento, SquareSpace all hover around 2nd place). What's more, it's open source / GPL licensing, there are plenty of great free and premium plugins, extensions, and theme support out there, and it plugs up nicely to shipping and payment processing.

Join us for a very hands-on walkthrough of simply the Woo basics - we won't even get in depth for special topics like taxes and shipping, but we'll cover plenty of general basics and show some very intro workflows on how to navigate Orders, Products, Customers, Reports, and Coupons.

We'll be following up with a very special Happiness Bar (WordPress Q&A session led by volunteer experts and pros) dedicated to WooCommerce and eCommerce.

WordPress is an open source platform for building websites, and Knoxvilles WordPress group tries to gather every 3rd Wednesday for their monthly meeting to discuss WordPress topics. Presenters are still needed for upcoming months. If you are interested in leading a lightning talk or a main presentation, please contact the WordPress group on Meetup.

More volunteers are needed to run the WooCommerce Happiness Bar, so if you are interested, stop by and talk to one of the volunteers or let us know you'll be helping in advance.

As usual, this night will consist of a Show and Share portion where WordPress users can show off their projects and what theyre working on - we'll skip this if no one has anything to share.

This event is free and open to the public.

If you want to present at or help with this or another WordPress Meetup in the future, let us know:

-Show n Share projects (show what you have been working on, or problems you are having.. 3 minutes max per person)

-a lightning plugin/theme review or other special topic: 10-15 minutes, looking for all users, devs, designers, eCommerce, etc

-Main presentations/workshops: ~30 minutes, looking for all users, devs, designers, eCommerce, etc

-Happiness Bar (we need more volunteers for our recurring Happiness Bars!)

Schedule for this event

7:00 PM - gather to the back classroom at Knox Makers for announcements and brief "show and share" if anyone wants to show off WordPress-related projects they've been working on.

~7:00 PM - Lightning talk - TBD. If we do not get a volunteer for a lightning talk, we'll start the main presentation early.

7:15 PM - Main presentation - WooCommerce. James will be presenting on the overhead projectors behind the podium to walk through WooCommerce live.

~8:00 PM - Happiness Bar! Feel free to step up to the Happiness Bar (we have loaner laptops to use and free wi-fi) and see if a volunteer can help you out with advice or tips.

8:30 PM - Wrap-up and social time - some members move to Market Square for drinks.

Please note about our Happiness Bar: some specialized or extensive work might need to be done on your site including an audit of the code and might be inappropriate to hash out by volunteers. Our Happiness Bar will try to be helpful if we know of any resources or freelancers that may be more appropriate to investigate on your own.
