We are delighted to invite you along to our monthly WordPress meetup.

We meet from 7 pm and aim to get our first speaker underway at around 7.30 pm, this gives everyone enough time to arrive, get a drink and help themselves to the sandwiches provided. If you're a newcomer don't worry, we'll keep a friendly eye open for you and introduce you to the others so you'll feel welcome.

This evening will have 2 presentations each followed by questions. Between presentations, we'll take a short break followed by the closing remarks to finish the meetup. Things usually come to a close at around 9.45 pm but you will still have time to mingle and chat if you so wish.

Here's what's on the agenda...

/*************************************
* 7.30pm
* A Timesavers Guide to the Command Line
* with Keith Hyde
* Skill Level: Advanced
*************************************/

In this talk, I will be looking at various ways to shortcut your workflow. Saving time typing with handy shortcuts for the command line, such as scripts and aliases, emails, and everyday tasks. Leaving more time for problem solving and coffee drinking.

This talk will cover workflow and shortcuts on my Mac, introducing terminal, Alfred, Brew, ZSH/Oh My ZSH and shell scripting. While it focuses on Mac, most of the talk is applicable for anyone using or connecting to a Unix/Linux system as well.

By the end of this talk, you will be rushing to shortcut your life.
