"Everything is a File" - Abraham Lincoln*
What is the secret sauce that makes WordPress taste so good? What is that crazy sounding wp-includes folder? What happens if I delete a plugin via FTP? Where does WordPress store all my images? How does WordPress know I have a theme installed?
This month we'll talk about the structure of WordPress. We'll take a look at the files that are included when you install WordPress, where your images, themes, and plugins are stored and what happens when we modify some of those weird sounding files.
*Ok, not really Honest Abe, but that sounds way more impressive than "UNIX Sysadmin."
Note: Chris will be out of town for this meetup. Aaron Graham and Gregory Ray will be running this show.
Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making them wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation.
6pm to 6:30pm - Question and Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event. This is a great opportunity to get some one-on-one help or feedback!
6:30pm to 6:45pm - Introductions and housekeeping.
6:45pm to 8pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.
