What we're about

Every month the East Bay WordPress Meetup brings together both newbies and experts to talk about everything WordPress. This meetup is mainly for people who build WordPress sites for a living, though we welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about how to use WordPress.

Roles and Capabilities: Deploying WordPress for Scalability

Tech Liminal 3.0

Today, clients want to have more control over their WordPress installations. Their long-term goal is to acquire enough skills and resources to be able to manage their websites. WordPress developers understand these goals are sometimes a bit aspirational. However, as good partners, it is our job to configure WordPress towards that end. With that in mind, we will be looking at how to configure WordPress for both collaboration and scale. The session includes discussions, demos, and content related to the following topics: * Understanding the authentication, authorization, and accounting methods of WordPress. * Analyzing WordPress's default roles and capabilities * Creating roles that align with business requirements * Enforcing the "least amount of access required" policy About the Facilitator Jermain Allen is the founder of RTR Digital LLC, a company that specializes in assisting non-profits and small businesses in completing the digital transformation using open source platforms. Before starting his technology consulting business, Jermain was the top-rated technical trainer at the two largest consumer electronics companies in the world. He spent the majority of the last decade traveling the country, training third parties about the technologies that power many of today's most popular devices.

Designing Gorgeous Responsive Layouts for WordPress
Needs a date and time

Tech Liminal 3.0

We may not be able to discuss both DESIGNING and BUILDING layouts in the same meetup. I'd like to focus this one on what you need to consider when designing a responsive WordPress site: both design principles that apply to any responsive site, and how to incorporate the different elements of a WordPress site. Here are some points I'd like us to cover: • What designers need to know about WordPress before quoting a WordPress project • Why mobile-first design will make your life easier • Card-based layouts and atomic design principles • Device (or layout)-specific content • Navigation • Hero images, background videos, and other design trends I definitely have my own opinions on this, but would love some input from those of you who are real designers. If you're interested in contributing, either email me or comment below.
