B) Chrome Developer Tools - HTML, CSS, Javascript and Profiling
D) Building your first theme (the right way)

    I enjoyed seeing all of you. Hopefully you will all bring a developer friend next time so we can start getting more people involved!

    Hey Seth, where can we find the live stream for tonight's meeting?

    March 20, 2014

    • Seth C.

      Hey Tim, you will have to check back here around the time of the meeting, I can't post the link until I "start the broadcast".

      Sorry Tim, we didn't end up streaming the event. The fatality car accident closed down streets, and stopped Carol from attending. She was my "streaming person".

  • Seth C.

    That's an overwhelming amount of C. I will prepare some material for Plugin Development. Thanks for the feedback everyone! Feel free to continue voting. Your votes will likely influence the next quarterly developers meetup.

    F would be good.

    Practical responsive/adaptive image techniques for WordPress. (If such a thing exists)

    March 17, 2014

  • Lori

    B, C or D all sound interesting to me.

    March 17, 2014

  • Teresa (.

    I'm fine with C. :D

    March 16, 2014

  • Seth C.

    Thus far, C has priority, but I'm hoping with a little email poke I just sent out that we get a few more votes in. Although I know Joe Manna also wanted to see plugin development.

  • George L.

    C, D. F - Git with multiple projects, on XAMPP and hosting account, publishing to client accounts that don't have SSH. E - WP DB queries from two databases.

    March 16, 2014

  • Tim R.

    C would be cool , building a plugin vs. placing code in the functions.php file. B could also be super useful, I use Chrome Dev Tools all the time and am always looking for cool new features. Thanks Seth!

    March 14, 2014

  • Ben K.

    I vote for C - I've built plugins but would love to know best practices on security measures. Also F - I'd love to hear how others develop with Git.

    March 13, 2014

  • Trisha

    I vote for D- I've built a number of themes, but never confident that I've done them the *right* way.

    March 13, 2014

  • Seth C.

    Also, if you are interested in presenting on any of these topics, let me know. Please make sure you vote via the comments.
