MODX and Wordpress - a side by side comparison

  • Mar 14, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We have a special treat lined up for March. Expert MODX developer, consultant, presenter and author, Everett Griffiths, will compare and contrast some of the technical differences and similarities between the two platforms.

  1. Permissions : how to do the simplistic WordPress style permissions in MODX
  2. Taxonomies: tagging and categorizing your pages in MODX like Wordpress
  3. Updating your sites: MODX's answer to WordPress' one click upgrade.

In addition, rub elbows with other movers and shakers of the Rocky Mountain MODX community! Meet, network, share tips, make connections, collaborate - enjoy yourself! Come one, come all - we look forward to seeing you!

Food and drink will be provided by the good folks at Code - The Technical Talent Agency. They generously are providing the venue as well. Thank you!

Everett Griffiths is a full time developer specializing in back-end architecture, VPS hosting, plugin development, and security consulting. He works primarily in MODx, Wordpress, and CodeIgniter. See his book "Wordpress 3 Development Essentials" (published by Packt), and look for "MODx and Wordpress Side by Side" due out later this year.

    I will be putting together some videos and articles related to today's talk for those of you who can't attend, but today will be your *only chance* to see me shoving pizza and beer into my face!

    Sadly, workload and a 3-day hut trip this weekend I need to prep/pack for are going to keep me from attending.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! If you guys have specific questions that you want me to field, please post them here!
