TOPICS AND SPEAKERS

7 - 7:40pm From Local to Live in 30 Minutes w/ Gregg Franklin
You've all heard that developing a site locally will save you tons of time and prevent that "oops" moment when something breaks on a live site. Let's join Gregg Franklin from ServerPress as he shows us how to utilize DesktopServer to save time and mistakes. DesktopServer can create local development sites, create bluprints (which lets you set up local versions the way you like, including plugins you always use, themes, etc) and deploy them to live sites in just a few minutes.
The methods he will be demonstrating will be from a Mac perspective but works equally well on the PC's!
Gregg suggests checking out DesktopServer ahead of time to see how awesome it is and to come up with any questions that he can answer during the Meetup.
