Digital Strategy Works launches WordPress Westchester Meetup Group

Digital Strategy Works is pleased to announce the formation of the Westchester Wordpress Meetup Group. As the popular blog software, Wordpress, continues its migration to a full-fledged open source CMS solution, user groups have sprung up around the world to support bloggers, theme developers, and plugin developers who are need help or want to contribute in some way to the community supporting Wordpress.

In fact, the community has grown so much over the past few years, individual user groups working with Wordpress in major cities around the country are now forming larger, two-day conferences, aptly name WordCamp. The most recent WordCamp in New York City attracted over 700 attendees interested in learning about or contributing to Wordpress.

While the Wordpress NYC group has grown exponentially, we thought it was time to help our fellow Wordpress fanatics in Westchester form a group of their own. Our first event will be held on Tuesday, January 26 from 6:30 pm to 9 pm at the offices of the Journal News at 1 Gannett Drive in White Plains, just off Rt. 287 and Westchester Avenue.

For more information on the Wordpress Westchester Meetup Group or to join, please register at Meetup.com.
