What we're about

Is this meetup for you?

• Are you a WordPress professional who is more focused on PHP, MySQL and/or JavaScript code, or on DevOps, than on design?

• Do you work for a digital or interactive agency, or an internal corporate web development team, or are you a freelance developer looking to work for one?

• Do your WordPress projects tend to be much larger than the average WordPress site, with lots of custom PHP, MySQL or JavaScript code and/or hosted on more complex server stacks than shared hosting at GoDaddy or similar?

• Do you work best on a project team instead of being a one-person WordPress impresario?

• Are you not afraid of learning new things, things like PHP, MySQL, Nginx, jQuery, ReactJS, EmberJS,Git, Backbone, Vagrant, Docker, and of course the WordPress REST API?

If you answered "Yes" to all the above questions then the Atlanta WordPress Engineers meetup is for you.

IMPORTANT: We are not affiliated with the WordPress Foundation's Community Meetups initiative (https://make.wordpress.org/community/meetups/) because we are not open to WordPress end-users. We are instead a group for serious professionals with a goal of raising the bar for WordPress coder talent in the Southeast and to make it more viable for the major project funders to choose WordPress instead of closed source solutions.

So this meetup will cover the best practices expected by clients who spend $100k+ on a website and want to ensure they get stability, security, performance and a financial return on their investment.

Join us and let's get started raising the bar for WordPress talent in Atlanta.
