First Philoveracity Google+ Hangout
Using new platforms for cool new things are one of my favorite tasks. I am one of those guys who has what you could easily label “Shiny New Object Disorder”. Although Google plus and their hangouts have been out for a while, to me they are still relatively new. When I was living in Vegas a few months back I actually set up a hangout (View that hangout Here) for a day where I was desiring to simply answer people’s questions about WordPress – but when I got a bunch of other WordPress Developers on my channel I shrank back and began to think, “Uh, oh! What am i gonna do now?” My plan had failed!
Possible seeds for a new thing…? 🙂
Maybe it was not such a failure after all. While on the channel, a good new friend that I met (never met in person.) Jason Tucker from Tucker Professional Web Services & The Orange County WordPress Meetup Group and I had a really good conversation. It was a good time for each of us developers to hang out and just shoot the breeze. Well, fast forward a few weeks or so and My friend Jason begins a structured conversation on Google+ for WordPress developers called WP Water-cooler. Brilliant Idea! Why hadn’t I thought of this?!?
That first hangout left something wanting and to be honest, I did not consider this as a forum, for developers of WordPress but it makes so much sense. I did not get to attend the first WP Water-cooler but i watched it and made it a point to be on the next session. So ladies & gentlemen if you have not had an opportunity to tune into the Second Episode of the WordPress Water-cooler and hear my brief second of input Check it out below.
WPwatercooler Episode 2
Many thanks to Jason Tucker for taking the initiative to make this thing formal and yet another resource for the WordPress community worldwide.
Verious, thanks for the kind words regarding the WPwatercooler weekly show. I had a few things I wanted to make sure would happen on the show:
1. Set time every week
2. Don’t waste peoples time, quick intros right into the topic at hand
3. Showcase the awesome people I know and even some I dont know yet in the WordPress community by having them on the show.
4. Meet new people, learn new stuff and become a better developer for my clients.
WPwatercooler has been picked up a few places online, views are going up and things are looking good. I attribute all of this to the awesome folks that are on the show and how well people in the WordPress community mesh together.
See you on an upcoming show!
