Who needs Ruby on Rails, WordPress, the other Web App Development Tool

  • Needs a date

  • TeqCorner

    1616 Anderson Road, McLean, VA (map)

  • So you need a new web app developed?  Can't find a Ruby on Rails developer?  What about Cake PHP and other web app development frameworks to rapidly build and deploy?  WordPress is now a viable option to build simple to complex web apps even faster, plus you can add plug-ins to speed up even more the development process.

    Use what you know, PHP, HTML5, Javascript, AJAX, and other web technologies along with WordPress as your web app framework and spend more time on design and user experience, than on coding.  This will yield a highly functional, great looking, fully up-gradable, responsive web app that is developed in a fraction of the time.

    Zane Mathews has accomplished just that with one of many projects that he has developed.  Join Zane for a full demo and inside explanation on how and why he used WordPress to build a web app.  Find out how you can accomplish the same goal.

    Check out his amazingly fast  web app based on WordPress that he developed to support his second or maybe first passion, BMX Racing.


    If you are a developer, entreprenuer, startup, or anyone else who has been considering building a web app to support your service or other solution, WordPress, may be the other option as an inexpensive, very flexible alternative that can grow and adapt as you do supporting you current and future needs.


    This meetup is tentatively scheduled in May based on venue and Zane's availability.

    Can this please be scheduled? Has this already happened, or is a great idea / event that's been sitting around; description says it could happen in May? How about August 9th? or August 11? I'm all for it. It's an outstanding idea worth doing
