The Northeast PA WordPress Meetup is back for 2017!


We’re excited to bring together local (and semi-local) professionals for a conversation about the intricacies of building, growing, and maintaining a service agency within the WordPress ecosystem. Finding and managing clients; advocating and providing training on WordPress; choosing the right plugins for you and your clients; and managing updates, security, and backups are just some of the topics up for discussion.

We currently have three panelists and are still looking for more. If you would like to participate, please contact Phil and Stephanie, the meetup organizers.

BlackOut Design’s office is located at 527 South Blakely Street in Dunmore. Parking is available across the street in the La Cucina and Ragnacci’s parking lots. Come prepared with questions!
