Share Your WordPress Tools, Plugins, and Tips!

Be prepared with your favorite tools, plugins, and tips that you use while working with WordPress and be prepared to come home with a list of new tools shared by other local WordPress users.  If you are looking for suggestions on how to do something, also be ready with those questions.  We will be sharing and discussing all of our favorite tools, plugins, and tips while working with WordPress.  These can range from design and development tools to frequently used plugins to tips on how to better your SEO or content creation.  Meetup organizers, Brad Parbs and Dustin Filippini, will lead this group discussion as we find out what helps each member work better with WordPress.

A big thanks goes out again to our host and sponsor, C2 Graphics.  Be sure to check them out for your training and staffing needs.  They even have positions and training in WordPress!

    Bummed I didn't make it, especially since it appears that DesktopServer was mentioned. It would have been handy to have me on hand to answer any questions that might have come up.

    I'll catch you guys next time!

    Brad and Dustin rock. They answered all questions and generously shared their secrets. They went way beyond expectations, IMHO.

    Brad and Dusty - thank you very much for tonight's session. The training, food and group inclusiveness was excellent. I'll look into the July WordCamp, the Coupon Code and the Parking accommodations.

    Thanks Brad. Posting the links is a great added value to a great discussion. And thanks Brad and Dustin for sharing your valuable time and talent. I hope we can all pay it forward someday.

    I've just begun creating two WordPress sites, one with an ecommerce function. So I'm looking for tips and shortcuts.
