We will also be joined, via Google Hangout, by Mark Jaquith (http://markjaquith.com/), a Lead Developer of WordPress to talk on his experiences in creating WordPress 3.5
Google Hangout On Air:
WordPress 3.5 was just released. By the time we gather for this meetup everyone will have their site updated to 3.5 and everyone will know the changes that have taken place, the new features, and how to use everything, right?
Okay, probably not. Don't fear! WPMKE is here to save the day! Two of Milwaukee's WordPress Super Heroes will be presenting about what you need to know on the latest version of everyone's favorite CMS.
Brad Parbs (@bradparbs) and Dustin Filippini (@dustyf) will give a run down of the latest and greatest advances in the world of WordPress, so you don't have to follow along in the #wordpress-dev IRC chat on a daily basis to know what is going on with the latest version of software that powers your website.
Brad Parbs (BradParbs.com) is a Freelance WordPress developer and Internet Rockstar. He literally wrote the book on "How to Be Awesome", has created plugins in the WordPress Plugin Repo, spoke at multiple WordCamps, and is a core contributor in WordPress 3.5.
Dustin Filippini (dustyf.com) is a WordPress Developer with the Milwaukee WordPress Development Firm, The Orion Group. He is an organizer of the Web414 and Milwaukee WordPress Meetups and assistant organizer of WordCamp Milwaukee and has spoke at multiple WordCamp events.
