At this week’s Creative Corridor WordPress Meetup on April 16, 2014 at 5:15PM Central, the third in our so far popular series, we have a special treat. Christoph Trappe, the Meetup’s co-founder, met one of WordPress’s default theme developers, Konstantin Obenland, at WordCamp St. Louis 2014. When the March Meetup discussed ideas for discussion for April’s event, Christoph said “why don’t I ask Konstantin if he’d join us via Google Hangout.” The wonderful thing about today’s connected culture and digital tools is such a suggestion is plausible! Within days Konstantin agreed to join us.
Konstantin Obenland, whom is a Professional Scrum Master and Certified Scrum Product Owner, is a Code Wrangler at @Automattic (thee major WordPress contributor/product developer). Born and raised in Constance, Germany, Konstantin moved to Southern California in 2012. Over the last few years he worked on three default WordPress themes, Twenty Twelve, Twenty Thirteen, and Twenty Fourteen.
It will be a great honor to have Konstantin join the Iowa Creative Corridor WordPress Meetup as our first VIP and Google Hangout guest. This is exciting for our group and we want you to join us as well! In you are in Eastern Iowa, you can join us in person by RSVP on Meetup.com or if you are not in the area or cannot otherwise make it to Cedar Rapids on the 16th, you may join us live on Google Hangout. We’ll also plan to provide a recorded version of the event after the fact.
We hope you can join us! See you then. Click these links to get more info!
