The AMP Project is an open-source initiative aiming to make the web better for all. The project enables the creation of websites and ads that are consistently fast, beautiful and high-performing across devices and platforms like Twitter, Pinterest, Google Search and others.

While initially aimed at publishers, AMP has expanded to e-commerce, entertainment, travel, recipe sites and others.

Learn the latest developments straight from Google I/O’19 and how to apply them to your site using the Official AMP Plugin for WordPress.

6:00 PM: Help Desk
Looking for help with a stubborn WordPress issue that you just can’t figure out? Join us for an informal Help Desk night where we learn by sharing WordPress techniques and best practices. All experience levels welcome. This is a give and get Meetup: Give some help and get back from others — even if you don't have much experience with WordPress.

Please bring a laptop so that you can get online and participate.

7:00 PM: "Getting the green light with Yoast SEO" Presentation
Are you using Yoast to its full potential? Join us as we create a fully seo optimized page on a WordPress site. The group and I will collectively write content and design a page that will light up Yoast with 100% green lights. This is one of the simplest ways to ensure your on-page content is in top-top shape. Nearly all of the pages on all the websites I design have 100% green lights, and now I'm going to share how I do it with you!
