LoopConf talk previews! Not just one, but two of our meetup members are speaking at LoopConf (https://loopconf.com/) in February and are going to preview their talks for us.
While this is a meetup in our "***Not Beginner***" series, anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but there will be an assumption in the presentations and discussion that attendees have prior knowledge of WordPress.
1) Developing on The Front-End: Chrome Developer Tools
Presented by: Shawn Hooper. Shawn has been a web developer since the mid 1990s, watching the web grow from simple and tags to the complex mix of markup and languages it is today. He is now the Director of IT at learning and development startup Actionable.co, as well as being a freelance WordPress developer in his “spare time”. Shawn has a few contributions to WordPress Core under his belt, and will be taking on the role of Lead Organizer for WordCamp Ottawa in 2018.
In this talk, Peter (the WP Migrate DB Pro team lead), will talk through how to balance solving new problems while refactoring an old codebase.
Some of the questions Peter will address include:
- How to update your build tooling from Grunt to Webpack/npm scripts
- Switching to ES2015 syntax and modules
This is a meetup in our "***Not Beginner***" series. This series of talks is for WordPress (or related) presentations that are not at a beginner level.
Anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but there will be an assumption in the presentations and discussion that attendees have some knowledge of WordPress.
