Join us on the Espresso Bar on Tuesday, April 16

Eric AmundsonThis month we are happy to have a guest host on the Espresso Bar hangout, Eric from IvyCat Website Services. Eric has 14 years of industry experience — running IvyCat for more than 10 of those — and is one of our Event Espresso Pro developers. Eric and IvyCat are responsible for the Anna’s Bay site we’ve featured on the site as well as  QuickHandle basketball camps and a groups integration for the MailChimp add-on that we’ll be releasing on the pre-release channel.  Eric sent in some questions to the Event Espresso team, so we’ll be discussing that, and we’ll be talking more about Event Espresso Arabica. If you have any questions for the Event Espresso team, about Arabica, or if you have any questions for Eric, please let us know in the form below. It’s sure to be an awesome show you won’t want to miss. The show kicks off at 10am MDT (4pm UTC). You can send us questions via Twitter @EventEspresso or with the #EventEspresso hashtag or join us in our IRC chat room on Freenode, #eventespresso.

Hope to see you there!
