April Meetup: Plugin Development Basics

For this month I'm going to go over the basics of building a plugin. I'll cover with some examples of plugins I've built over the past few months. How I planned them out and eventually developed them. Hopefully this gives you an idea of the workflow involved when creating plugins for projects. We'll follow our standard meetup format:

• 6:30-7p - Welcome / Pizza / Social • 7-8p - Plugin Workflow / Development
• 8-8:30p - Wrap up / Networking / etc

    Thanks Ryan for your help. I have forgotten who you said you use for domains. When I went to look for "cheap domains" Google came up with a number of hits. Please respond with which registrar you use. I did see with namecheap a service they provide called freeDNS. Is it really free? Their pricing for domains is around $10 to $12 for com, net, org, etc. That's a lot higher than some of the really cheap ones. I assume that's because of their level of service if it is namecheap that you use. Thanks again...

      Rick, I use Namecheap. The service seems better than the rest. GoDaddy can be cheaper, until you realize you clicked the wrong button during checkout and bought something else you don't need. I'm not sure what the freeDNS service is, but I'm sure thats referring to DNS hosting, meaning you can add all your entries there. Most places do that although they may or may not have a formal name for it. I think I've heard of Hover as another good registrar. I moved all my stuff away from GoDaddy a few years ago after getting annoyed at the service too many times. Hope this helps.
