What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Whenever I find myself in a position where I'd like to add some functionality to WordPress a few things used to happen. I would do a few Google searches to see if there's a blog post talking about what I want to do. Then I would try to see if someone on Stack Overflow has a quick solution. Once I found a code snippet, I would try to replicate it in the Theme's functions.php file.
Instead, now I break these little functionality additions into Micro Plugins. Through micro plugins, your site is more stable, changes are easier to test, and debugging is easier when something goes wrong.
We'll walk through this typical scenario and compare and contrast the benefits of inserting code into a theme's functions.php file and creating a micro plugin.

What is a Happiness Bar?
This is a part of the meeting that we stole directly from WordCamps. It is an opportunity for our community members to ask specific questions that solve issues they are running into on a specific site or project. There are a lot of great minds in our meetup, and this is a great way to tap those resources to help your site or business. Sometimes we can help solve the problem right then. Longer problems that need more support can lead to swapping contact information and connecting with somebody willing to help.
