WP Toledo Problem Solving Meetup
King Road Branch Library

Good Afternoon,

I am grateful to all of you who signed up for this talk. Our guest speaker, Michael Temple had something come up and will be unable to speak Thursday evening (tonight). We are planning to reschedule later this year.

In his stead, we will hold a problem solving event for anyone seeking help with websites. Whether you need help with your website design, plugin recommendation, or font selection. Whatever it may be, we are here for you. If you're not having a problem, please come out and share what you are working on. Who knows, you may help someone too.

Next month, join WP Toledo for new talks. We're welcoming Jessica Setter for a talk on User Experience Design and Accessibility. It's brand new and we think it is going to be fantastic! In November we're welcoming Michael Temple again to give us the customer talk. In December,we're joining all of Toledo's Tech community for their annual year end party. It is not to be missed.

P.S. WP Toledo is looking for great talk ideas. If you have something you'd like to see, please reach out. Laptops and other mobile tech are welcome. Smiles, name tags and water will be provided.
