Join us for the September Philadelphia WordPress Meetup happening on Sept 29th, 2010! The meetup will take place at Future Media Concepts (FMC) in downtown Philly.


Beginner - Getting Started with WordPress presented by Doug Stewart

This session will cover WordPress from the ground up. We'll install WordPress, go through basic configurations, demonstrate how to install plugins and themes, and more! We'll even cover how to setup a MAMP stack on your Mac so you can install WordPress locally without the need for a server.

Advanced - WordPress Plugin Development 101 presented by Bonnie Vasko

This hands-on session will walk you through the steps to create your own plug-in.

The session will cover:

An introduction to the Wordpress Plug-in Architecture and API
Wordpress Hooks: Hook into Wordpress code with actions and filters
Custom Admin Panels: Learn how to create and customize admin panels.

Tickets for this event cost $5. Because of the space limitations we can only fit 40 people (20 beginner / 20 advanced) so we need to charge to verify everyone that RSVPs actually shows up. All money collected will be used for future Meetups, food, giveaways, etc.
