We have some WordPress all-stars in town who will be talking with us about a variety of subjects at our next PDXWP Developer event. Given the range of topics and quality of speakers, it's like our own mini WordCamp! Each presenter will get 30 minutes to speak, including questions. The list of speakers is:
Mel Choyce, Designer at Automattic, will be speaking about managing design in an open source project.
Kelly Dwan, Web Engineer at 10up, will be talking about "the loop" and performance.
Aaron Jorbin, Technical Architect at Conde Nast, will be speaking about build tools.
Finally, Andrew Nacin, Lead Developer of WordPress, will be talking about "something cool"; trust me, it will be "really" cool.
There are a few things to note about this event. The PDXWP Users group are meeting at the same time in our normal space. We will be using an alternate space that is TBA. I am just waiting on a final confirmation before announcing. This space will only accommodate 40 people, so sign up quickly if you are interested and please only sign up if you plan to come.
This is a really exciting event and I look forward to seeing everyone on the 23rd!
