WordPress Suffolk Meetup - August 2018


At the WordPress Suffolk Meetup (https://wpsuffolk.org) this month we'll be taking a look at Bedrock and how it can support our WordPress development workflows. We'll also be getting an introduction to the WordPress Coding Standards following the 1.0.0 release of the WPCS for PHP_CodeSniffer (https://twitter.com/jrf_nl/status/1022186349355585536).

We will be holding an informal meetup for WordPress developers, designers, users and business owner. Meeting the second Thursday of every month. The format will consist of speakers, open discussion, round tables, lightning talks and your ideas.
