December 2015 ***Not Beginner*** Meetup


Presentations and open discussions on Git and using Git for version control with WordPress

We’re looking for 3-5 people to present at this session.  If you would like to do a short presentation on how you use Git, or lead the discussion about Git for 10-20 minutes, please let us know.

Confirmed presenters:

Mike Dickson: Mike will share his method of using git with WordPress to enable easy version testing, rollbacks, content separation and the .gitignore file that nearly killed him.

Mike is <!– Insert bio that nobody will read here –>.

Roman Rus: Options for introducing git into the FTP workflow.

The goal is to replace working on the FTP in such way that resulting workflow is better in all regards, in particular:provide easily accessible history, backup, allow complex collaboration and be sure that we do not overwrite the changes introduced by people that still resist git and keep using FTP to directly change the files on server.

Roman has been working with WordPress since 2008, and as a freelance WordPress developer since 2011 He is a full time Web Developer at Machine Agency
