June WordPress London Meetup

  • Jun 18, 2015 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Not your usual #wpldn date, we are a week early so as not to clash with #wceu.  Missed a #wpldn recently?  Catch up at wpldn.uk 

BuddyPress; an overview of recent updates, and what to expect in the year ahead.

If you're not familiar with BuddyPress, it helps you run any kind of social network on your WordPress, with member profiles, activity streams, user groups, messaging, and more. Find out more on https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress/.

Presented by Hugo Ashmore and Paul Gibbs.  Hugo and Paul are from the BuddyPress project and will be sharing the latest news with everyone, talking about recent releases and ideas for the future. It's a great opportunity to get all your BuddyPress questions answered, and to learn about how you can contribute back to the project. Follow them @hnla & @pgibbs

Version control for WordPress sites

The way WordPress was created is very "forward-centric" – you click in the admin area and the changes are applied immediately. It would be often useful, though, to roll back the change if it caused any sort of trouble (broken plugin update, human mistake, etc.). The talk discusses how a technique of version control can help with that, what are the challenges when applying it in the world of WordPress, and what approaches and tools are available today.

Presented by Borek Bernard. Borek is a software developer from the Czech Republic with strong interest in best practices, proper tooling, etc. With his team he is currently working on VersionPress, a version control plugin that hopes to improve how WordPress sites are managed.  Follow him @borekb

Adding Composer to your WordPress development toolbox

I'll be looking at how to use Composer as a tool to manage and maintain WordPress based sites & applications, from getting up and running with Composer, through managing full site stacks to adding composer support to your own plugins and themes.

Presented by Neil Pie.  Neil runs PIE, a 3 man WordPress development agency providing advanced development and support services to clients and digital agencies alike.  Follow him @neil_pie


Follow #wpldn on Twitter for all the latest and like us on Facebook to take the conversation further.  Have a talk you'd like to present?  We'd love to hear from you: [masked]

    Hi guys that was brilliant. Good solid information in the talks, and very informative. Good discussion too. Wondering if it was a bit dev focussed this time out - I got the feeling a few people came away a bit 'blinded by science', but overall great. And very welcoming too!
