WordPress Leeds - Plugins special


Our monthly meetup for WordPress users, bloggers and developers.

We have two speakers this month.

Mark Wilkinson - Easy Extensible Plugins

We all love WordPress, many of use because of the ease in which we can extend and modify its functionality. Plugins themselves take advantage of this to add something extra to WordPress. In my experience most plugins are never exactly as you want them. Therefore being allowed to change them is essential.

Mark will introduce methods you can use when developing your plugin that will allow others to extend or modify its functionality or output. The talk is suitable for beginners and intermediate developers.

Matthew Haines-Young - An introduction to Gutenberg.

Gutenberg is the new WordPress editor which is in development & is currently released as a plugin. Matt will talk about the new features and demonstrate how it currently works.

Why not speak at our next event?

We are always looking for people to come and speak at our events. So if you have an idea for a talk, a discussion or just want to show folks what you have been working on, get in touch. You don't need to be a professional speaker or even to have spoken in a group before.

If you don't want to do a talk, but are interested in hearing about a specific subject, or have an idea/problem, get in touch and we will try and find someone who can help.
