Melbourne Ghostathon @ Framework, 21/08/19

Hello Ghost Forum folk,

Allan here, someone who is in no way affiliated with the Ghost team but who can claim to be the undisputed lurker here on this forum.

I do of course have a Ghost blog myself, and while writing away as usual I’m also currently in the process of migrating the blogs of a few colleagues of mine away from their current platforms over to Ghost. I started working on the migrations at a Melbourne WeWork location back in June (uh, no comment), but then transitioned in early-July to the fantastic coworking establishment Framework.

Along with all that I was just asked yesterday if I’d be interested in giving a talk about Ghost next week to some of the people here at Framework, to which I of course replied yes. Upon asking if I could extend the invitation to people on the Ghost Forum I was given the green light, so if there’s anybody out there in the Melbourne area who is perhaps new to Ghost and who would be interested in a half-decent walkthrough, please feel free to stop by.

Be aware though that I am in no way a qualified dev (I fortunately know enough HTML and CSS to customize themes) and have virtually no skills to brag about when it comes to the command line. I have however gleaned enough info over the past couple of years to the point that I can talk a bit about Ghost’s history and inception, about why you might want to use Ghost instead of WordPress or Medium, as well as relay a comprehensive explanation of how to use the platform and what it’s capable of (and soon to be capable of – memberships and subscriptions! ).

If any of that is of interest to you then be sure to stop by a bit before 4pm on Wednesday the 21st of August for the presentation of which I imagine to last about an hour or so.

Framework
Suite 1, Level 1
458 Swanston St, Carlton, VIC

If you plan on stopping by please RSVP to ghostathon@collapse.porn.

Cheers,
Allan
