WP CBR March Meetup!

First meetup of 2013!  Jason Conroy has offered to do a talk on Security and Wordpress - so well worth coming along!

We are looking for others to do lightning talks for the evening - short 5 to 10 minutes presentations on a topic. It doesn't have to be WordPress specific, it could be around a challenge you've had building a website or using the interface that you overcame - we would love to hear about it.  Please email your topics to [masked] so we can arrange the schedule for the night.

Pizza's and nibblies, along with Tea & Coffee will be provided - all we need is your company to make the evening a success.

The Hartley Life Care facilities are awesome.  The room costs us $80 a night, so if you if you could make a small donation on the night to offset the organizers costs, we would be most appreciative!

See you there!

    Sounds like I missed a great presentation at the beginning of the month. Hope to make it to the next one. Thanks John for the helpful links and Jason for those slides. I have tightened the security for my websites .... and upgraded! In case anyone is interested I found some useful sites:

    1. http://whatwpthemeisthat.com/ - Is a free online tool which allows you to detect what WP theme a site uses.
    2. http://ipadpeek.com/ & http://quirktools.com/screenfly/ - Free device emulators for testing your website on various devices.

    But you all probably know all this. :)

    Big thanks to everyone involved in organising this; Jason and John for your presentations (I've successfully updated one of my sites for the first time,huge relief it all went well!); and of course Jason for the catering! It's such a supportive atmosphere and everyone so willing to help. I leave each time having learnt heaps and had a really nice time. See you in April!

    As a supplement to my reviews I thought I'd give links to the goodies I did find to help with website designs.

    1. http://wordpress.tv – awesome presentations from web gurus on all wordpress topics
    2. This led me eventually to http://wordpress.tv/2010/03/15/mix10-morten-rand-hendriksen/ must-see presentation on “Rapid WordPress Design with Expression Web 3”
    3. Rand-Hendrisen’s Expression Web code-snippets for WordPress functions are at http://gallery.expression.microsoft.com/WordPressTools/
    4. Expression Web 4 (formerly over $100 to purchase is now available for free download from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=36179
    5. By the way additional goodies referred to by Rand-Hendriksen such as Microsoft Mesh has been replaced with Microsoft SkyDrive and Microsoft Web Platform Installer --- which lets you replicate a WordPress installation on your PC or notebook is available for free at http://www.microsoft.com/web/downloads/platform.aspx

    • Jason C.

      Thanks John - really appreciate the reviews. I've never seen Expression Web 4 + WP in action. I'd be keen for a demo sometime. Do you have a link for a site you've built for it? I'm interested in what the code looks like that it spits out. Thanks!

      March 7, 2013

    • John H.

      Sure. It's early days. But the code is not the sort we used to associate with FrontPage for example. I'll try it out with a small project hopefully later this month and let you see the result when it's ready.

    Slides for my preso are up here with all the links/resources.

    Yvette, Craig and Rory, sorry you can't make this event - there is one already scheduled for April! Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night!

    Jason will be talking about WordPress Security and John Hilvert will be discussing 2 WordPress books he's picked up - I'm looking forward to hearing about them.

    Very new to Wordpress (first personal blog tonight!), though a long time reader and contributor to others. So really hoping that I can make the next meeting, unfortunately clashes with regular commitment on that night of the week. Would love to learn more!

    I've just purchased two e-books, WordPress Anthology and Build Yours Own Wicked WordPress Themes. If there's interest, I'm happy to offer a first looks review on their merits from the perspective of a WordPress novice and relatively experienced web designer and builder.
