Have you heard about downtown Phoenix’s newest office and community space? It’s called CO+HOOTS, a place where people can come together to share office space and ideas. Independent workers who used to work from home or crowd coffee shops with their laptops are now seeking office-like spaces where they can focus, collaborate and be more productive.
CO+HOOTS says this in a description about themselves:
Central Phoenix is quite unique. It is home to a range of independent artists, photographers, designers, web designers, writers, etc. who benefit from working together and are willing to grow through this model of collaboration but don’t have the space to do so in a professional manner.
If you haven’t heard about them, or had an opportunity to check out their awesome space, now’s your chance. Even if you are not seeking office space of your own, CO+HOOTS hosts a variety of events each month for the broader community. Here is January’s line-up:
Phoenix Night Owls

Word Camp Phoenix
Jan 27, 6pm-8pm
Jan 28, 9am-4pm
The point of WordPress is to provide a powerful, flexible, scalable and easy to learn website tool that anyone can access for free.
The point of WordCamps is to celebrate this open tool by teaching people how to use WordPress, how to bend it to their will, and even how to leverage it as a business- and to do it all for about the price of lunch.
