Developers & Designers: Lightning Talks Meetup

Come one, come all developers & designers for an evening of lightning talks. It will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded WordPressers in the Denver Metro Area and share some intermediate-to-advanced knowledge at the same time.

If you're interested in just meeting up, no problem. If you're interested in spending 5-15 minutes talking about something you're passionate leave a comment. Looking for maybe 4-6 total topics we can cover.

Please note: This meetup is geared toward the developer and designer crowd, though people of all levels and experience are welcome!

Lightning Talks so far:

1. Drew Jaynes plans to show off some of the new actions and filters introduced in the 4.0 release last week.

2. Keya Lea will take us for a walk through the code of a comprised site. Should be interesting.

3. Patrick Rauland (welcome to Denver!) will be talking about how to leverage the Customizer for plugin options.

4. We need a volunteer for a fourth. You?

    Sadly I have to cancel my RSVP for tonight - too many back to back meetings today! I am very bummed. However, I would really love to hear more about Keya's talk. Any chance you guys might perhaps do a google hangout to allow people to watch from home? Or do another one of these very very soon?

      That means, though, that a waitlisted person can attend in my spot, so yay!

      I'll try to make a post about it this weekend, but if I don't get to it, it sounds like these meeting might happen on a monthly basis. The presentation was short and basic, so we can likely catch up at some point.

    I thought I'd be able to make it, but I'm crazy busy. I was looking forward to it! Until next time :-)

    Still sick and probably contagious dangit! Hate to miss this. Please do consider having this again in the evening hours.

    I can give a quick improv talk about about something front-end or designery if needed.

    • Michael A.

      Cool. Would anyone be interested in an impromptu talk about information hierarchy and organization?

      September 9

    • Drew J.

      Sure, why not? :)

  • Ben U.

    So does the wait-list mean i should not come?

    September 9

    • Drew J.

      Unfortunately, yes. The space we're meeting at is gonna be stretched even at 20. Depending on how it goes I might try to make this a monthly thing.

  • Christy C.

    Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to make it tonight after all. I look forward to catching up with ya'll soon!

    Unfortunately, I won't make it this time.. but I'm glad to see these being held after work hours! Next time!

  • Patrick R.

    I could show off how plugin developers are starting to use the customizer for plugin options.

    3 · September 6

  • Drew J.

    Since 4.0 was released just yesterday, I thought I might give a talk on some of the new action and filter hooks. Any interest?

    3 · September 5

  • Keya L.

    I'll give a quick talk that looks at the code of a compromised site - if people are interested. Hopefully it doesn't happen to anyone, but it's kinda fascinating.

    3 · September 5

    • Drew J.

      Great. It'll be good to see you again :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
