September Meetup: Favorite WordPress Plugins

We are planning the September meetup for Tuesday, September 10th, 7pm at the University of Scranton's Weinberg Memorial Library, room 305.

Joe Casabona will talk about the top plugins that he uses and recommends for various tasks in WordPress.

Joe Casabona is a web developer, teacher, and author of the book Building WordPress Themes from Scratch. He’s from Middletown, NY, lives in Scranton, PA, and has been making websites since 2002. He was introduced to WordPress in 2004 and has been working with it ever since.

The library is near the intersection of Linden Street and Monroe Avenue.  It is #39 on the University of Scranton map (http://admissions.scranton.edu/visit/_documents/2012-2d-map.pdf).  Street parking is typically available on Linden Street, Monroe Avenue, and Madison Avenue.

And don't forget - we'll be live streaming via a Google Hangout.  If you plan to watch the stream live and participate in the chatroom, mention that in your RSVP.  Keep an eye on the www.nepawp.com for the streaming details.

--

On another note, Joe and Phil will be speaking about Wordpress Customization & Security at NEPA BlogCon (http://nepablogcon.com/) on October 5th.  Check it out!

    I really enjoyed my first meeting and learned a number of things. We were discussing the offline use of our sites for testing plugins and we discussed XAMPP. Another option I had found was using Instantwp which was what I was planning to use. Does anyone have any recommendations on which is better.

    I took a lot of notes. Being new to wordpress I came away with a lot of very useful plug ins to use on my sites. Thank you for a great session.

    I can't physically be there either - but want to join in the live streaming, I also didn't see that option in RSVP.

    I will be attending via the live stream. It did not let me enter that info when I clicked attend.

      Thanks Bob. My mistake - I've now added the live stream question to the RSVP.

    I'm computer literate but fairly new to WordPress, though armed with a half-dozen third-party books (WordPress: The Missing Manual, WordPress For Dummies, etc.) I'm devouring. Are there any seasoned WordPress users in the greater Scranton area who might be meeting before Sept 10 anywhere, or whom I could meet (at Books-A-Million, the library, a mall, your home, or wherever) of whom I might ask a question or two?

    Wish I could be there but I have a prior engagement. Do let me know about the Google Hangout as I might be able to swing that I just can't drive up to Scranton with the schedule I have.

      Not a problem - that's why we have the hangout and the recordings. The video feed and the chat will be embedded here, usually starting about ten minutes before the actual presentation: http://www.nepawp.com...­.
