Dan Olson is our featured speaker for the August 20th Philly WordPress Meetup! His topic: The Future of WordPress.

Let’s talk about the future of WordPress by starting with the past - specifically, the challenge to Learn JavaScript Deeply and why I believe it’s still our biggest opportunity.

We’ll also discuss the JAMstack, a modern web development approach using JavaScript, APIs, and Markup. It sounds new, but in fact, WordPress has been doing this since the first Gutenberg block!

Join Dan as he demonstrates using this approach with concepts related to Gutenberg, the WordPress REST API, the role of accessibility, voice as an interface, and more.

This meetup welcomes all members whether you’re a seasoned developer or new to the community. It’s designed to inspire and set the stage for what’s possible. Even if you don't Know JavaScript Deeply, it's always a good time at the Meetup - you'll meet other members of the community and have a chance to learn and share what you know.

The Meetup takes place at 1776, located at 1608 Walnut Street, 12th Floor, Philadelphia PA 19107, from 6:30 to 9pm.
