Oslo WordPress Meetup

Our next WordPress meetup will be Tuesday, November 22 at 6pm. We will be meeting, as we have in the past, at the Metronet office at Sandakerveien 76. Looking forward to another exciting night all about WordPress! We love input from the community so bring your WordPress questions or something you would like to share with us! Hope to see you there!

Exciting news! Arif Shafique, a Microsoft employee, will be presenting on WebMatrix and Microsoft's involvement with the community. WebMatrix is a free web development tool from Microsoft that includes everything you need for website development. (including WordPress)

His presentation will be around 45 minutes and let's plan on doing our 10 minute "lightning" sessions afterwards.

 

Lightning Sessions (10 minutes max.):

Øyvind Malin - LESS gjør CSS gøy igjen

Scott Basgaard - Settings API

Andreas Beining - RSS & WP

Morten Hauan - Shortcodes

    Mostly in Norwegian, but then again, it's the Oslo meetup and that is expected.

    Would be nice to have half-and-half, but even not being able to speak Norwegian, I got a lot out of the presentations.

    Running late. I'm there in 15-20 mins

  • Julius Getz M.

    I have wanted to check out LESS for quite some time. Thumbs up here!

    November 22, 2011

  • Øyvind M.

    If anyone want... i can demo a wp setup on my IIS afterwards if there is time just didnt have the time to prepare slides etc.

    November 22, 2011

  • Øyvind M.

    Change of plans.. Due to time problems i've had to change my talk from WP in a MS environment to "How LESS makes css more fun"

    Hey Frankie, that's really nice of you, you are obviously aware of how good I am at getting lost! I am in fact going to have to find my own way as my meeting has run over and I'm a fair way from Aker Brygge. Look forward to meeting you tonight though! Nadia.

    November 22, 2011

  • Frankie A.

    Nadia, if you can find your way down to the boat harbour at Aker Brygge then you can follow me to the meetup. It can be confusing finding your way there especially if not familiar with the Oslo area. I'll be taking the nr. 12 tram and will be at the tram stop at Aker Brygge around 17:25.

    Welcome to the group Nadia! See you Tuesday :)

    November 21, 2011

    No worries Stig, hope to see you soon :)

    Nadia.. when you get off at Sandakersveien (bus no 30 towards nydalen) just continiue walking up the road until you see a KIWI store on your left.. The metronet offices are in trough the gates next to KIWI.

    I have got a meeting collision and must attend the other meeting. I can show Buddypress on the next meeting instead.

    November 20, 2011

  • Nadia A.

    Hey Arnstein and Tofik,
    Thanks for replying so quickly. That link is fantastic, hopefully I won't get too lost now!! Look forward to meeting you both on Tuesday.

    Nadia.

    dont think there are any requirements to join, its open. You can take the bus number 30 to Nydalen from Jernbanetorget and get of at Sandakerveien http://reiseplanlegger.trafikanten.no/no/Mellom/Fra/%2830113630%29Karl%20Johans%20gate%201/til/%2830116161%29Sandakerveien%2076/etter/221120111700

    Hi, Nadia! Welcome to the group. There are no requirements to attend the meetup. Best travel option from Karl Johan is either the tube to Storo or tram #11 or #12 to Grefsenveien. You can find schedules at trafikanten.no. Call me if you get lost. Looking forward to see you at the meetup.

    November 20, 2011

  • Nadia A.

    Hey everyone, I'm hoping to attend the meet up on Tuesday! I am from England but head over to Oslo quite often on business. Any specific requirements for attending a meeting? Also does anyone know my best travel options from Karl Johans Gate? Thanks in advance. Nadia :)

  • Scott B.

    Going to be a great meetup, bring your WP friends!

  • Scott B.

    Shortcodes would be great Paal. Very powerful. If not this meetup, definitely next.

    November 14, 2011

  • Paal Joachim R.

    Jeg har en request for neste møte eller møte etter dette.
    En leksjon/tutorial om det å bruke short codes. Hvis noen kunne plukke dette opp og ved en anledning dele av sin erfaring så er det supert.

    November 14, 2011

  • Scott B.

    Perfekt Andreas! :D

    November 13, 2011

  • Andreas B.

    Scott: was thinking of showing how to use RSS to spread content from WP and vice versa

    1 · November 13, 2011

  • Paal Joachim R.

    Nydelig! Jeg håper at dere som har tenkt å ha en 10 minutter at dere viser frem eksempler på det dere skal fortelle om slik at det blir mer håndfast, konkret, jordnært, morsomere for oss å se hvordan dere har fått til det dere kommer til å vise. Show and tell...:) Kinda like a tutorial. Eller noe sånt noe. :)

    November 12, 2011

  • Julius Getz M.

    Skal nok få til det

    November 11, 2011

  • Paal Joachim R.

    Hey Julius. Kanskje du kan bruke 10 minutter og fortelle om nettbutikken du satte opp for Norvis?

    November 11, 2011

  • Scott B.

    Perfect Stig. Really looking forward to this meetup!

    November 10, 2011

  • Stig U.

    I can show a BuddyPress site (social network).

  • Scott B.

    Andreas: Awesome!

    November 10, 2011

  • Scott B.

    Me too Lasse. Me too.

    November 10, 2011

  • Andreas B.

    sure, I can talk! :) Need less than 10 min though. (i think..).

    November 10, 2011

  • Øyvind M.

    I'll try to coordinate with Arif so that we don't cover the same topic :)

    November 10, 2011

  • Paal Joachim R.

    Perhaps someone wants to hold two lightning sessions?

    November 10, 2011

  • Scott B.

    Awesome! We should try to get 1 more lightning session.

    November 10, 2011

  • Paal Joachim R.

    Kult! Jeg filmer...:)

    1 · November 10, 2011

  • Scott B.

    I'll do a lightning session on the "Settings API".
