A little history about our group.
In 2007 we started out as the Joomla Users Group of Bothell known as JoomlaForGeeks.Com where we focused on helping web site owners that used the Joomla.Org Content Management System.
In 2012 we added the group The Next Generation I.T. Club chapter of Cascadia Community College to connect web application and Information Technology students with our group to help them find projects to internship for.
Then in 2013 we added the Eastlake Community Church Web Site Development and Design Group to the meetings to develop a source for web projects to work on.
Then in 2014 we added the GeekZoneBooks.Com community support group to our meetings to provide a community support group for the web hosting customers of GeekZoneBooks.Com.
In 2014 we merged all the groups into a single name for simplicity and have developed our main logo.
GeekZoneBooks.Com has always been our hosting sponsor and has provided domain and hosting for our sites WapTug.Org, WapTug.Com and WapTug.Net
We have over 50 members that have attended over the last 7 years and hope to grow our group to over 100 this year.
We also have plans to formalize our group into a self sustaining non-profit corporation and grow our group into a larger group with decentralized chapters around the world in colleges and churches by 2017 when we celebrate our 10 year mile stone.
In order to do that we will need a core group of directors to move that plan into existence so if your interested in helping to build our group into a actual non-profit corporation then please commit to attending all of the meetings in 2015 and let me know of your interest in moving forward on this project.
So have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
