February came around quickly! So quickly that we're going to have our Feb meetup in March!

We're at Skills Matter again, you must register for the event here (http://skillsmatter.com/event-details/home/humans-robots-wordpress-1314/js-3607).

The talks are:

Your favorite plugins

Graham Armfield (http://www.coolfields.co.uk/) presents a couple of his favourite WordPress plugins and invites others to share theirs too. If you want to take part in the sharing and talk for a couple of minutes on your favourites then let Graham know and he'll include the details in his slides.

In the two and a half years since I've been developing in WordPress. I've come across some really good plugins that I use time after time. And I've also wasted time on plugins that I found weren't much good. After joining WordPress London I've learned about some good plugins from other presenters. Wouldn't it be useful if we shared our knowledge and came up with a list of favourite plugins that we could all dip into?

I'm happy to share a couple that I use regularly but welcome suggestions from others. If you'd like to talk briefly (3-4 mins) about a plugin you love then why not join in. Send me your name and the details of the plugin and I'll include them in my slides. As a minimum let me know the name, but it would be useful to include the URL and a couple of bullet points about why you like it and any potential pitfalls. If you don't want to present but have some suggestions why not send the details anyway and I'll include them in the slides. I'll share the slides afterwards so we can all see them.

An introduction to building Multi-lingual sites with WordPress

Rich Holman (http://twitter.com/dogwonder), UX Developer at Dachis Group (formally Headshift), discusses methods, things to look for and consider, design considerations and plugins that can help you build a multi-lingual site with WordPress.

Design for humans, not robots, with WordPress

Tammie Lister (http://www.logicalbinary.com) presents:

"This is a call to action to bring back human focused design. Give your site some personality, see your viewer as an individual and connect with your audience. Find out why you should be and how you can start talking to the person not the machine."
