The WordPress Melbourne meet up returns for another month. Our WordPress meetup covers everything from choosing Themes & Plugins and setting up your site, through to theme and plugin development and everything related to Core.
We currently run one meetup per month. We try to alternate between end-user/beginner talks one month and development/technical talks the following month. As it all depends on availability of presenters though, please make sure you keep an eye out on the topics for the particular month once we update the meetup page with all the details.
We're always looking for new speakers, so contact the organisers in the meetup.com sidebar if you have an idea for a talk. We usually start the night with a light meal before the talks.
You can find links to past presentation slides (when available), over on our WP Melbourne website - http://wpmelb.org
RSVP's for this meetup will open 7 days before the meetup starts

=== WordPress eCommerce: WooCommerce and Other Ways to Sell with WordPress ===
There are many ways to use WordPress to sell products and services, and collect payments; from something simple like embedding a PayPal button, all the way through to managing your own full-featured eCommerce site with WooCommerce connected to a payment gateway. In this session, Calie will touch on the pros and cons of the various eCommerce options and plugins available, covering topics like selling subscriptions, courses, memberships and products. She’ll also share a few popular WooCommerce extensions that can be used to extend the core features of the platform.
