WordPress North East meetup

Do you use WordPress to keep your website up to date? Are you a web designer or developer or uses - or wants to use - WordPress? Want to learn more? WordPress North East is for you!

We're meeting on the 20th March at Clavering House just off Forth Street behind the railway station, from 6 - 7:30pm (and quite probably longer if we find a warm pub after the talks!).

We have two great WordPress talks lined up for you:

• "Custom Post Types, Taxonomies & Post Meta" by Steven Jones (@stompweb) 

• WordPress Workflows and Deployment by Phill Brown (@phill_brown)

• WordPress Q&A - Everyone!

This month's event is sponsored by Peacock Carter (@peacockcarter).

    Thanks for taking the time to put this on guys and thanks to PC for funding the event, some great topics covered. Shame the time went so quick, I had to shoot pretty sharpish but would have loved to have a chat in the pub after. I think some great topics would be:

    Real World best practices so for example; a group member could be thinking about creating a estate agent website (to follow last night's theme) and they want to know the best way of...organising viewings through the website, it might be nice for 'the hive mind' to come up with the dos and donts for this and discuss pros/cons of different implementations.

    Security - I'd consider myself fairly savvy on wp security but there may be some things I'm missing on my sites, obviously security is very important so this could be a good topic.

    As discussed last night, it might be nice to see what other people in the group are creating with wordpress.

    Cheers again guys, hopefully see you in May.

      Real world examples bring out the best talks I think - good idea.
