WordPress London Meetup - October

  • Oct 27, 2016 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's that time of the month already!  #wpldn this month is focusing on the community and coding standards. 

Missed a #wpldn recently?  Catch up at wpldn.uk 


WP Open Mic.

An opportunity for us as a community to discuss what's on our mind.  It might be the latest plugin you've found, the fact that WordPress now has a REST API, you're struggling with getting yourself started in business, or maybe you'd like the groups opinion on a workflow?  Whatever's on your mind this is an opportunity for us as a community to support the community. 

Why switching to WordPress Coding Standards will make you a better developer.

WordPress Coding Standards have been around for a while, yet many developers don’t write code that conforms to them, let alone know they exist. This was the case with me until September 2015 when I made the switch, and now I wish I’d dived in earlier! In this talk I’ll explain what they are, how they will help you write better, cleaner and more secure code and why you should be using them for all WordPress projects.

Presented by Dave Green.  Dave is a tea drinking web developer from sunny Manchester specialising in front-end development, WordPress and WooCommerce. He has been developing websites using WordPress for the last five years and is a senior developer at the WordPress WordPress development agency Make Do.  Follow him @davetgreen


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

    Thanks to all the organisers for the meet up. Apologies for shooting off early. Look forward to the next one now that I've been to my first. Thanks also for the page builder link.

    Had a great time as usual, wonderful to see everyone again! Excellent talks. One for the entrepreneurs by Anil Gupta, who founded Multidots and a great talk by Dave T Green about WordPress Code Standards.

    Hello, I remember a lady asking for some opinions about page builders, so here is the article everybody mentioned yesterday: https://pippinsplugins.com/wordpress-page-builder-plugins-critical-review/

    It's a long read but well worth it.

    Sorry couldn't make this one, broken down miles away!

    Shouting out: as WPHooked, I'd like to organise a technical (code based) discussion about the new REST API. Who could lead, can be several people, expressing how it can be used, what they have done, etc.? DM me, open to any ideas
