Join the fun!

We meet once a month to explore new and exciting web technologies!

Anyone can attend… for free!

Each meeting (we call these meetings: “DreamUps”) will focus on several cool web technology topics where we could:

  • Demonstrate a feature or service.
  • Have an industry leader speak to our group. Want to speak or demo something?
  • Host a round table discussion with invited experts.

We also:

  • Pass along the latest news from our web host partner: DreamHost.com
  • Give away free swag: buttons, tshirts, novelty glowing ice cubes, etc.
  • Provide free appetizers and free bar service (well drinks). :-)

What are you waiting for? Here’s how to join the fun! Want more info? Read our FAQ.

The first DreamUp

Our first DreamUp was a lot of fun! We covered a few exciting tech topics and our small group had lots of great questions and feedback. One thing we learned… WordPress is very, very popular! Hope to see you April 24th for the next one!

Our first DreamUp was a huge success!

Here’s a brief recap:

Demo/Discussion of Google Authenticator used with the DreamHost admin panel and other sites. View the slide deck.

Demo/Discussion of choosing the best (and shortest) domain name with bustaname.com

How to make a WordPress site look good on mobile devices with the WPtouch plug-in.

“The Change Log” (aka: News form DreamHost)

We briefly talked about these topics:

We also gave away lots of free DreamHost branded swag!!

After the event we somehow ended up talking about how to add rainbows and unicorns to your site with cornify.com and also make any webpage look like it was made by a 13 year-old in 1996 with geocitiesizer.
