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.

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.

Brandy Lawson – Oxygen Builder
https://oxygenbuilder.com/

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.

8:30pm
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.
