One of our developer members, Mike Schinkel is going to present on the new features of WordPress 3.0. For those of you who don't know, this is a big release with a giant step in functionality. There is a new default theme called 2010, a whole new feature to create custom post types with custom taxonomies, and now 3.0 combines what was formerly WPMU (Multi-user which is actaully multiblogs) capabilities into WordPress.org's 3.0 version.
This month, in May, Mike will discuss the new default theme and go into uses and methodologies for using the custom post and taxonomy feature. He will also touch on some of the other nuggets tucked into the new version.
Mike will post a little more info on his presentation soon.
Next month, in June, Russel Fair will present on The WPMU multi-user capacity now built into 3.0 and how to get the most of of that using the Buddy Press Plugin.
Our new format will be rive at 7:00pm. We will have 30 minutes to check in, have a beverage and snack and schmooze. Start the presentation at 7:30. The presentation will be conducted by the presenter without comments from the peanut gallery with questions time at the end or after each section. It will be one hour total.
At 8:30, after the presentation and questions about it, we will create breakout groups based upon soliciting your questions that you bring to the meeting. We will assign various "experts" to deal with those different topics in different areas of the room.
We will clear out by 10:00.
Would love some help setting up and putting away chairs and we need someone to Greet folks and check them in.
So let me know if you'd like to play. - Judi
