    For anyone using windows who got hissed at last night :), re: Guy,s great chat on Compass and SASS, don't worry abouy getting Ruby on your machine it is very straight foward now. just download from railsinstaller.org, for a simple way, if you do it from the other urls available you will get in a mess, it will install quite happily next to WAMP as it uses localhost:3000 not 80 or 8080. If anyone gets stuck give me a shout.

    Very useful first talk about security, should do it more often. Interesting second talk about managing different instances of WordPress, something I need to get into soon. Sadly I'm not neither a coder nor a designer, so didn't really get the last talk but the guy sounded like he knew his stuff.

    March 22, 2013

    I would love to have come to my first meeting, especially as it's SASS and Compass, both of which I want to dive into a bit more in the coming months ... but I will be away on holiday, poor me! :P

    I am stuck on image hosting for shopkeepers with lots of images. Is it easy to host them on a free server like Picassa and still have all the plugins and lightboxes? Is it possible to control image size enough that a 200kb server stores them all?

    SASS learning sounds good, I'm in

    March 14, 2013

  • Rob M.

    YES

    March 13, 2013

  • Rex from 2.

    As there are no speakers/agenda for this meetup yet are people coming just for the beer?

    March 8, 2013

    • Scott C.

      There will be speakers however they are not yet set in stone.

      March 8, 2013

  • Sam

    sorry cannot attend as am away from the UK, might be able to do April though, and can be booked as a speaker :-)

    March 8, 2013

  • Eugene

    It would be nice to hear someone talking about eCom/WooCom for once. Thanks

    March 8, 2013

    • Scott C.

      We've had Jigoshop talk at WPLDN in the past. Eugene have you got something to talk about eCom/WooCom? We are still in need of speakers for this month.

      March 8, 2013

    • Eugene

      I missed Jigoshop talk as I've been a member only since October. I'd love to talk about eCom/WooCom but I know way too little, just getting into it and working on a eCom project at the moment so I thought it'd be nice to see what others know/think about it. Sorry, not much of help :/

      March 8, 2013

  • Carl T.

    Looking forward to this!
