WordPress Columbus Meetup

This meetup has been scheduled, but details are still being worked out. If you have any idea for what you'd like to learn, drop us a note in the comments.

We usually have refreshments available (snacks & beverages). Feel free to contribute and bring your own to share with the group.

We invite anyone that would like to share a topic, or show a project they've worked on as a case study to talk to one of the organizers of the group about presenting.

Most of the topics we cover will include a wide spectrum from introductory "how-to use it" all the way to advanced "how-to code it". Even if you're just starting with WordPress and we're covering an advanced topic you can still get something out of it! We always have volunteers available to do one-on-one or small group ground-up walkthroughs of WordPress!

You never need to worry about if you're going to learn something or not. We guarantee no matter where you're starting you'll come away with something useful.

Hope to see you there!

    Thanks so much for a great meeting and for the links, Angie! Just a quick reminder about letting WP know about the Save & Activate button in Customize. Would love to save without activating!

    I won't be able to make it tonight. Just had a change in my schedule. Will definitely come to the next one.

    1.
    I was hoping to learn from a non-programmer's point-of-view, the purpose and power of web hooks.

    2.
    I was also hoping to hear people's thoughts on what the best user-registration-to-CRM plugins are, that are at the same time very form-creation friendly.

    3.
    Most importantly, I was hoping to learn more about WP multi-site, and to decipher if a Wordpress multi-site would suit my needs... I follow a lot of WP's famous Chris Lema, and he has some relevant opinions on it!

    As a disclaimer, I have to work Thursday, and determining what time I get off is impossible, so I'm not sure just how on-time or late I will be, so please forgive me in advance if I show up late. Thanks!

      Chris, I'll chime in on hooks... unfortunately hooks are something you have to get into the code to completely understand. They allow a developer to change functionality or filter content output depending on how the original developer set them up. The power is that new functionality can be added (and output content modified) without modifying the original code. Hooks (actions and filters) are really only for developer use.

      Thank you Damon!!! As much as I desperately need to hear you chime in on hooks, I had a last minute thing come up that's preventing me from attending, so I'm totally bummed. Perhaps I can take you out to lunch and pick your brain a little more on hook usage, or we can just wait for the next WP meetup event to chat for a bit... either way, please let me know.

    I had to miss the last one. I am looking forward to it.
