May 2018 Virtual Contrib2Core [Developers]

WHAT WE DO

Note: The activities in this meetup are best suited for intermediate/advanced WordPress developers.

Join Paul Bearne (Senior Freelance WordPress Developer) for a virtual meetup using Google Hangouts, where we come together as a team with the aim of adding to and improving WordPess itself (contrib to core).

This is a series of monthly events using YouTube live recording on Google Hangouts. A new hangout link is published in the comments shortly before each session. All registered attendees will also receive an email, just before the meetup, containing this link.

Sessions are interactive – you will help craft the code and create your own core commits. As at the beginning of January 2018, we had submitted around 20 patches of which about half have so far made it into a release from this project.

You do not need to have experience of core commits, just to be reasonably comfortable with code and willing to come along, learn and do. There is guidance all the way, with opportunities to help with documentation and research. You can even just lurk and listen!

At each meetup, we are working on writing unit tests for the original functions file in WordPress – there are around 200 functions to keep us occupied!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

If you are new to core development, you will need to install
https://github.com/Varying-Vagrant-Vagrants/VVV or have a working deployment build of WordPess.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW

The file we are working on is:

https://github.com/pbearne/contrib2core/blob/master/src/wp-includes/functions.php

We will use this repo to swap code as we work:

This is a shared event with The Toronto WordPress Group and The Kingston WordPress Group and is open to anyone, anywhere!

April 2018 WordPress Meet-Up

Gutenberg: News and Views.

Gutenberg, is the new editor (and more) for WordPress. This is perhaps one of the biggest changes ever made to WordPress. Gutenberg is expected to be officially released sometime in April with release 5.0 of WordPress. It is currently available as a plugin at: https://wordpress.org/plugins/gutenberg/ for beta testing.

Tentative plans: With the impending release, it seems like a good time take a look at Gutenberg and what it may affect on your WordPress website. The plan is to have discussions and possibly presentations on Gutenberg and things you may need to to be aware of on your site before upgrading. More details to come.

Meeting Details:

This months meeting is at Patty Bolands, 101 Clarence St. We have the room called “The Abbey”.
