After a short hiatus, we're back to our regular programming!

We're on a Tuesday this time, hopefully we'll help to inspire you for the rest of the week (and maybe cause a slightly less productive Wednesday morning!).

We have some great talks lined up:

"Tips, tools & techniques for making a living from
WordPress (from someone who actually does)"

by Simon Dickson

Code for the People co-founder Simon Dickson will talk a bit about the development of the UK ecosystem, the interplay between freelancers & agencies, and the variable concept of WordPress 'expertise'.

"Review of multilingual plugins for WP" by Jevgenijs Сernihoviсs

Lightning talks:

"Towards an Alternate Theme Structure?" by Graham Armfield

In theory, child themes save you a lot of work. But not if you have to change lots of files for the child theme. Here's an idea for an alternate theme structure that may overcome that.

"I feel the need... the need for speed" by Darren Grant

"The Heartbeat API" by Richard Long

With the launch of WordPress 3.6 comes the Heartbeat API, a simple yet powerful way of implementing a polling in WordPress. We'll take a look at the basics, an example and the possibilities.

"My first plugin" by Pat Lockley

A guide to playing with content using a filter.

"Title TBC" by Joe Root

Understanding reader's interests and appropriately tailoring your Wordpress homepage for them.

See you there!
