WordPress London January Meetup

  • Jan 29, 2015 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Happy New Year to you all!  The 1st #wpldn of 2015, January's Meetup will be focusing you and your WordPress business.  Lots to catch up on and plenty of great WordPress discussions to be had. 

How not to give appalling user support 

More and more developers are using WordPress to build and sell online products (web apps, SaaS, etc.), and providing excellent user support is a skill certainly not to be taken for granted. 

Presented by Franz Vitulli. Franz works as Product Marketing Specialist for Human Made, the WordPress agency - and WordPress.com VIP partner - behind Happytables, WP Remote and BackUpWordPress.  He's responsible for Happytables user support and training, documentation, social updates and other marketing activities.  Originally from Italy, he's been living in UK for three years.  When he's not in front of his laptop, he's either playing one of his bass guitars or brewing a good cup of Earl Grey tea.Follow him @franzvitulli.

Change is inevitable, growth is intentional

15 years in the Hosting industry. Rackspace from 100x growth in 10 years. Why I believe in WordPress. Gartner’s view of WordPress. My vision for WP Engine in Europe

Presented by Fabio Torlini. Fabiois MD for WP Engine. Based in Tech City, his main role is helping WP Engine launch their services into Europe. With over 15 years’ experience in the hosting & cloud industry he has a thorough understanding of all aspects of IT B2B marketing, Branding, PR, Channel and Management. Most notably in his career, Fabio helped build Rackspace to what it has become today - a leader in the cloud industry with revenues of $1.5B. Follow him @Torlini

Front End Workflow Automation for Theme and Plugin Development

The emergence of preprocessors, front-end frameworks, HTML5 and CSS3 has made front-end a far richer and more complex development environment. I will showcase techniques and setup I use to enable me to use a few terminal commands to automate tasks.

Presented by Milos Soskic. Milos is a designer with a computer science degree and founder of Citrus Mist design studio. He started programming at the age of 12 and a couple of years later, in 2000 during the dark age of DHTML, he started making websites. A self professed coffee addict, avid foodie and an incurable typography buff he mainly works on identity and web design projects with startups and small-medium sized businesses. He codes his own designs most of the time… Follow him at @citrusmist.

    I've now registered the custom Yeoman generator I use for my own projects with node package manager, which means that anyone can use it. It automates the setup I outlined in my slides.

    If you are interested https://github.com/artificer/generator-wpzest has the instructions on how to install it.

    I'm working on making these more detailed...
