11/18: WordPress Meetup | 6:00pm – 8:00pm
What to expect: WordPress has received a lot of attention this year because of recent security concerns. And if you’re building a new website, or wondering about the security of your own WordPress website, I sincerely wouldn’t allow scare tactics to sway your opinion of WordPress. In this session, we will go over some preventative steps you can take to decrease your risk of being hacked, as well as some free plugins that give your website a high level of defense. And finally, walk you through the recovery process if you were unfortunate enough to have been hacked.
11/18: Docker Meetup | 6:30pm – 8:00pm
We have a very strong presenter and a great topic to share with the Docker Meet-up group on November the 18th at the Innevation center, 6:30 pm. Jon Hathaway has been working with the AWS EC2 and ECS migration work. His company is using docker and they have been building self-learning environments as well as using service discovery to create micro-services. We feel this is a very hot topic. We are looking forward to Jon sharing his experiences in working with Docker in the AWS environment.

11/24: Las Vegas Video Marketing Meetup | 6:30pm
It’s the holidays and you will want to capture some awesome holiday moments on video for business and personal reasons. We want to discuss how to do it and not be the obnoxious one with the camera at the events and in everyone’s faces (you know what I am talking about). Discussions centered around understanding and sharpening our basic camera skills to help capture the moments without being offensive, in the way or making people nervous about being on camera. Help in getting “real life” shots on video and not needing a ton of editing or setting up. As always, this is a group participation event. Bring your comments, your questions, and any real-life examples you may have! Let’s have fun and learn something.

Anyone with a project can ask questions and get help from others. If you’re looking for a cool hangout that has a bit of free training in it to boot, or if you’re an expert that wants to meet other like-minded folks, this group is for you! Topics we’ll delve into during our meetups will range the gamut from SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Pay-Per-Click (Adwords & Yahoo/Bing), Email marketing, Affiliate programs, Content Marketing, and Social Media Marketing, plus the Analytics behind making all of them successful. If you are working on a digital project and want to bounce some ideas off others, or if you are skilled in the techniques, and strategies of Internet Marketing and are willing to help pass on your knowledge to others, the Las Vegas SEO / Digital Marketing group is for you!
