Attend our next meeting to learn more about WordPress, meet other WordPress users, share ideas, projects and other information.

There are 3 meeting tracks:

  1. The "General" track, usually meets the first Wednesday of the month.  This track includes beginner WordPress topics and general topics like SEO.
  2. The "Not Beginner" track, meets on the third Wednesday of select months.  This track is all the talks that cover anything that is "not beginner". That does mean that some "not beginner" talks may not be very advanced at all, and levels do vary from talk to talk, check the talk description. Some prior knowledge of WordPress is expected at "not beginner" talks.
  3. The "Contrib2Core" track, usually meets the second Monday of the month.  This track is a series of virtual meetings to engage in contributions to the WordPress core (fixing bugs, updating documentation etc.).  It is aimed at developers or those interested in becoming developers.

Most meetings are presentations that do not require you to bring a laptop. Meetings that are "Workshops" will generally require that you have laptop, and we will have WiFi available.

Undo the Mess: Use Roots for WordPress Dev

Calling all picky developers.

Let’s say I’m using WordPress for a new project. A sweet setup is important to me so I have some questions: How can I set up version control properly? Can I develop with others? When dealing with plugins, can I lock down plugin versions so I can test locally and commit when tested? Can I use Sass for style sheets and have minified css and js builds that aren’t committed to my repo? Can I use a nice template approach that’s DRY? Can I match my local dev to have parity with staging and prod? Is there a way configure the server’s provisioning in the same repo as my theme?

I’ve found a Yes for all those questions.

Backups, Backups, Backups

Did you know that it is often recommended that you have at least 3 separate backups of your website?

Could you recover your WordPress website if it was lost due to a hardware failure, hacked, or corrupted during an update or plugin install? Loosing your website is not fun, make sure you have it backed up!
