    Mobile design takes into consideration the limited bandwidth of a phone. Many times you can have a responsive site that looks great but still downloads extra data.

    Great meeting last night, thanks so much for putting up with me! If anyone has any questions about Responsive/Mobile design, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Those of you who didn't make it last night missed out on an awesome discovery made by a combination of Brian and Luke... Sorry, we vowed to never let this secret escape into the wild because of the damage it could cause to all involved.

    Would love to have anyone share experiences with creating WP Bootstrap themes made from scratch and potential pitfalls and successes of going that route.

    April 9, 2014

  • Camilo S.

    Does anyone have any specific questions? I have been thinking about this weeks topic and maybe we can narrow it down?

    Would a review of responsive design, Twitter Bootstrap and resources be beneficial?

    I'm needing specific help with our wordpress site. Is this meeting good for me to attend? Specifically, I need help with plugins, e-commerce, adding forms to the site. Thanks!

    • Travis P.

      For guidance and assistance - This is a a great Meetup for you to attend! Every once in a while, we have people who are looking for someone to build a free website for them. This is not what WordPressKC is for, however.

      April 4, 2014

    • Carol Ann Z.

      ok, thanks so much!

    Confused here - is this a working meet up or specifically regarding "Responsiveness and Twitter Bootstrap"
    Change in schedule?

    March 31, 2014

    • Travis P.

      No change in schedule. We added a weekly discussion topic to the working Meetups. Many of the more advanced WordPress users have expressed wanting more incentive (not really the right word) to attend working Meetups, as they do not normally have specific work/project related questions which need to be crowd-sourced.
