As part of Philly Tech Week (http://phillytechweek.com (http://phillytechweek.com/)) the Philadelphia WordPress Meetup group presents a fun evening of WordPress! The event will take place on Wednesday, April 25th from 6-9pm.
We've teamed up with the Philadelphia Inquirer to provide three great WordPress presentations:
WordPress for Beginners - Learn WordPress from the ground up. This presentation will cover basic WordPress usage including creating and managing posts and pages, working with media, comments and discussions, and more! Presented by Reed Gustow of WPClassroom.com (http://wpclassroom.com).
Creating Themes and Child Themes - Themes are a major part of any WordPress powered website. This presentation will take you through the power of child themes, including creating and customizing the Twenty Eleven default WordPress theme. Presented by Tracy Levesque of YIKES, Inc (http://www.yikesinc.com/).
Creating Your First WordPress Plugin - WordPress is endlessly extensible and plugins are a main component of this flexibility. In this presentation we’ll cover basic plugin development including plugin requirements, security best practices, and some examples and resources.
Each presentation will run 45 minutes with a 15 minutes Q&A directly after. Tickets are limited to 75 and are $10/each so RSVP quick! 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Nonprofit Technology Resources (http://ntrweb.org/) in Philly.
