Croissant is an international network of coworking spaces that you can find and book from an app on your phone. When you’re traveling it’s nice to be able to find a quiet place to work or a place to meet people and get a bead on the local scene. Croissant makes it easy to find place, what their hours, what kind of cliental a coworking space caters to.
Ideas & Coffee has now become part of that network! You can find more information on them at getcroissant.com. And pick up their app at the Apple App store or the Google play store.
Our October 24th general Meetup doesn’t have a topic, but I do have some resources to share with the community and I’m hoping that other people will have some thoughts on useful WordPress tools.
We’ve restarted the Friday lunch time seminars with several classes on WordPress: Intro to WordPress and Let’s talk about WordPress Themes. Keep an eye out on our Meetup group and on the SWCP calendar for future talks. Here’s a copy of the slides from the start of the WordPress Themes class.
There’s a new YouTube channel created by the folks at Southwest Cyberport to give you small, easy to digest topics about WordPress, our favorite CMS. Here’s some of the topics that have been covered so far. Be sure and subscribe to the channel for new tidbits.
The last few months has been fun watching lots of projects coming together at the Coworking Jellies and the WordPress work alongs. Here are a few of the things people are working on.

If you want to spend a night in a hut in the middle of the rainforest, how do you arrange that? Eco Trip Match is the tool you need! Check it out at EcoTripMatch!
East meets West
Joyce created a marvelous blend of asian and southwestern culture in her website Sashiko Southwest. Using the techniques of Japanese sashiko stitching and the traditional southwestern designs she’s created patterns and kits for a wide range of beautiful products. Joyce has built a WordPress e-commerce site and blog and is becoming a WordPress expert.
Traveling seems to be a theme these days. Kendra of Zunguka has created a website to collect travel stories from around the world. It’s meant to be a repository of interesting tales of travel, and a way to get more personal information about a place. If you’re interested in reading interesting stories or adding to her collection please visit her website: Zunguka.org.
