Ben Parizek will be presenting this month on customizing EE.
1) how to customize the default EE install at the file level, and how to manage settings at the file level
2) a variety of techniques to customize the control panel to create a better user experience for your clients. The first part will be more focused at developers but hopefully give some designers insight into how EE works. And the second part will be more focused on designers and making the client experience all it can be.
We'll be at the fantastic Kleverdog again in downtown L.A. It's a wonderful little space, and surrounded by some great spots for dinner and after-hours life. There are tons of great Chinese restaurants here! We are a bit limited on space, with room for only 30 this time, so RSVP soon.
Parking will be a bit tricky if you plan to drive, so here's a little help from Kelly Low at kleverdog.
There is no parking at kleverdog. There is a parking structure next door at Bamboo Plaza [entrance on Bernard St between Hill & Broadway], and another lot on Broadway near Bernard. Here's a map to help your members find us: http://bit.ly/qy8Xkj... (http://bit.ly/qy8Xkj) It can be a little tricky to find us once you've parked.
I hope to see you all there. Contact me with any questions. If you know anyone who would like to donate software licenses for raffle, let me know.
UPDATE: Great news! I have one Freelancer License of ExpressionEngine (http://expressionengine.com/) to raffle off courtesy of Ellislab (http://ellislab.com/)!
