Build Your First Shortcode in 5 Easy Steps With David Kryzaniak

Learn the basics of WordPress shortcodes so that you can write your own or tweak existing shortcodes. Shortcodes were first introduced in WordPress 2.5 (about 5 years ago). They are an incredibly useful tool that allow chucks of code to be easily added a post or page by non-programmers. If you've ever used the built-in gallery, you've actually used a Shortcode! We will discuss when and why to use shortcodes, and we will build a simple shortcode.

This will be presented by David Kryzaniak. He holds a BS in Information Science (with an emphasis in Psychology) from UW Green Bay and while he’s primarily a PHP developer, he also tends to do a lot of front end (CSS/jQuery/Responsive Web Design) stuff, too. He enjoys playing with electronics, writing code, and hacking into things he shouldn’t.

Afterwards:

The Avenue HQ has once again been very gracious and is allowing us to use their space after the meetup. If you want to chat about WordPress or a project you're working on join me at The Avenue HQ for some coworking.

    I am really sorry. I have an emergency and I won't be able to attend this morning. I was looking forward to learning more about Word Press. I will try to be at the next meeting. I am a beginner and open to learning how to get started.
