Could have been MUCH MUCH better. I personally came for the networking and for meeting ppl, but as a hardcore developer I haven't learned anything new. First session was not interesting, and the speaker simply talked about issues he had with building his own plugin. Second session (by Ido) was much better, very enjoyable (he's an amazing speaker, too), although it was more for moderate WP users and definitely not for hardcore developers. Unfortunately I wasn't present at the last session so I can't give my input on that one. In general, I'd love to see more meetups specially designed planned for *hardcore* WP developers. That means talks about how to deal with very advanced WP stuff, such as advanced caching methods, security things, scaling WP, etc. I'd even be happy to give a presentation. I have a lot of knowledge and I feel passionate about passing it to others. Hit me up for more details at [masked]. Thanks!

Regrading Ido's presentation about theme translation and L10n, here's a plugin that was mentioned in the session, and that I really enjoy using. Obviously, it is not as good as Poedit, but it's a decent alternative that will get your job done.

Please announce this meetup on the local (Hebrew) WP Facebook groups -- there are about 5 groups dedicated to WP, plus a few related, like website development, etc.
An event in FB would also be nice because it shows in the calendar -- and gives notifications!
If you want, I'll volunteer to do all that.
