Details

We have a special guest for February, Liam Dempsey and Lauren Pittenger (from LBDesign) for this special topic! Liam also organizes the Philly 'burbs WordPress Meetup to our north and has been a co-organizer for WordCamp Philly and WordCamp US when it was in Philadelphia.

Working together as an employer/employee team for the past three and a half years, Liam and Lauren have collaborated on the design and build over 25 WordPress websites. Like any team, Liam and Lauren each bring a unique set of skills and perspectives which makes working together enjoyable – and sometimes a challenge. In this talk, we’ll share some of the challenges and lessons learned from working together as a two-person employer/employee team while aiming to do our best work for our clients. The focus will be to share insights that empower us to maximize the joy we get from working together, while minimizing the hassles.

While this talk is WordPress focused, it's relevant for any small team looking to improve the way in which they work together.

We will also have time at the end for our normal QA around WordPress. Feel free to also bring a favorite plugin or tip / trick that you'd like to share with the group!

Food: Pizza will be provided (just bring $5 to help cover it).
