The math is simple: WordPress Fans & Developers + Beer = Good Times.
As promised the first WordPress Happy Hour event was held in Des Moines, Iowa on March 9th and was a big hit. We were able to quench the thirsts of around 40 guests over a three hour span. We gave away two copies of the popular WordPress eBook – Digging Into WordPress. A lot of new connections were made and we confirmed that the WordPress Community in central Iowa is alive and kicking. The groundwork was laid for a WordCamp event to take place this summer and we recruited several possible speakers, volunteers and attendees. Planning has already started for the next happy hour event, and we will be announcing more info soon via the @WPHappyHour twitter account.
