Local Development Sites - Led by Miriam Goldman
Most developers use a local environment, to develop their websites, before moving them to a staging environment online. This allows you to develop without having to worry about hosting or domain names (yet). We'll discuss why you should take this approach, and show some different options you can employ.
NOTE: All live options will be shown on a Mac, but we will discuss the Windows/Linux equivalent.
This is a meetup in our "Not Beginner" series. This series is all the talks that cover anything that is "not beginner". Talks in this series will range from not very advanced at all - just barely above beginner - to deep dive dev talks.
Anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but for "not beginner" talks there will be an assumption in the presentations and discussion that attendees have some knowledge of WordPress, and/or the presented topic.
This meeting is at Ottawa Public Library - Main Branch, in room B125.
If you want to connect to WiFi, you will need your library card. (unless indicated otherwise above, laptops and connection to the internet are not required during the presentation)
Free parking is available on the neighbouring streets after 5:30pm. Check the signs, a couple of the closest streets are limited to 1hr before 7pm.
The room is in the basement (B125). Enter the main doors, head left, and down the stairs. (Do not enter into the actual library) Turn right at the bottom of the stairs and follow the halls to the room. The entrance is the second door to the room. (the first door is always locked)
