WordPress Essex Meetup - November 2018
Join us for the last WordPress Essex Meetup of 2018! This month we'll be looking at some useful plugins when developing websites. Plus, we'll have an open discussion so you can set the agenda on the WordPress topics that matter to you. We're in our normal room in the Lord Ashcroft Building MAB 116. Find out more about the WordPress Essex Meetup at https://wpessex.org. # Plugins Uncovered We all have our favourite go-to plugins, often using them repeatedly on our client projects. We may have plugins we've used for years, or sometimes we come across handy plugins by chance. In this session, Mike Pead will demonstrate a few plugins he regularly uses, which are useful for all levels of abilities. Feel free to share your suggestions too! Presented by Mike Pead. Mike works at Primary Image (https://www.primaryimage.uk), a WordPress design agency based in Southend-on-Sea, who support businesses of all sizes across the UK. Follow him at @mikepead (https://twitter.com/mikepead). # Open Discussion We'll end the year with an open discussion on WordPress, so it's over to you! This could include ways of improving your website, streamlining your workflow, growing your business, or preparing for the imminent launch of WordPress 5.0 and the new Gutenberg editor!
