    A good night. As an inexperienced WP user I wasn't swamped by tech talk and appreciated the well organised address by Dion..

    Sorry for such late notice - a disaster occurred as I was leaving home - so cannot attend - sorry to miss this one! I can't see where/how to change my RSVP either - I must be going blind, or stupid ... or both ...!

    Unfortunately, not able to make it tonight so someone else can take my spot. Are you filming it Lachlan or Ben. Hope so as I am disappointed not to be there for the discussion tonight.

    November 12, 2013

  • Ben M.

    Can I recommend that if you can't make it please update your RSVP, there is only one spot available right now and there are probably a few people who could get in at the last minute so don't block them :)

  • Arnel G.

    So sorry for the late notice peeps. I am so flat out here at work at the moment and I can't make it tonight. Will attend next time. :(

  • Dave H.

    Now unable to make tonight's meeting due to timing.:( Apologies for the late notice.

  • Michelle P.

    Sorry guys, can't make it now. I have a client to meet at 4:30 on the other side of town :(

    There's been some rumours recently about major changes to the WordPress authoring UI in the not to distant future, for example http://make.wordpress.org/ui/2013/09/14/front-end-editor/.

    Given that authoring is such an important part of WordPress I'd be interested in learning more about what the future holds in that area.

    This is going to be great! Can't wait.

    Having put 2 of my sites on CloudFlare, I wonder if we could have a second topic of best practices for site performance. Obviously, if we get into a long debate, there won't be time, but it's such a rare occasion that we meet nowadays, I thought this might be interesting for many folks.

    Anything thoughts?

    November 4, 2013

    • Bronson Q.

      Hey Gal, Sounds like a good idea to me. We can have a bit of an open discussion about site performance after Dions talk. I'm happy to lead that discussion if you like?

      1 · November 11, 2013

  • Dion H.

    I'll be covering the new 3.7 features, focusing on the Background Updates features.
    We'll go into what it means for site owners, and for developers, and touching a little bit on the decisions behind them.

    If anyone has any specific questions they'd like addressed, please feel free to leave it as a comment here and I'll try and make sure I get to it.
    Hope to see you all there! (If you're not able to attend, could you please un-RSVP so that others can make use of the spot as the venue has limited space)
