March 23: Uncle Jake Needs a Website


Français ci-dessous.

Sooner or later, every web designer or developer gets a request for help from a good friend or family member. How do you decide when to say Yes or No? Should you always be paid? How do you manage the expectations and changes to the relationship? What’s different about this kind of ‘client’ and what should you be prepared for? Come and learn the art of negotiating delicate deals that involve loved ones, and how to manage the process so that it doesn’t come back to bite you next Thanksgiving/Christmas.

At her indie design shop, DolceDesign, she creates visuals for websites, mobile apps, billboards, trade show promo pieces, fake tattoos and… well you get the picture.

WordPress Montreal Holiday Party

Santa’s not the only one that never has a company holiday party to go to. It’s hard out there for a freelancer! So we’ve organized a holiday party for you, the Montreal WordPress community. Come meet old friends, make new ones, have a drink, play some pool, and celebrate the holiday season.

The Fitzroy is a bar and pool hall on the plateau, near the Mont-Royal Métro station. We have reserved an area for our group which includes a 3-hour block of time playing pool. The Fitzroy serves beer on tap, cocktails and finger food.

Tickets are 7$ in advance (no tickets at the door, no refunds). This includes one beer or non-alcoholic beverage, as long as you arrive before 9 p.m. There are a limited number of tickets. If we sell out early, we can add more tickets, but it is not possible for us to add tickets at the last minute, so please get your tickets early. Ticket sales close on Friday December 4, or when we sell out, whichever happens first.
