What we'll do
** IMPORTANT: Please make sure your Meetup profile includes your first and last name that is on your photo ID as you'll need this to enter the building. If you arrive after 6:45 PM please use the side entrance on 50th.
After a longer-than-intended break, we're excited to have this year's first BigWP at USA Today's new offices in Midtown. Please use the BROADWAY entrance.
BigWP is a networking event open to developers, product managers, and editorial teams who run large, high-traffic WordPress sites.
Please be sure to RSVP (and have your guests RSVP) so that you can check-in with security.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with presentations starting at 7 p.m.
We will have the following flash talk presentations, each lasting 10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of questions:
* A Quick Overview of VIP and Gutenberg - Allison Blanda from WordPress.com VIP
* Sourcing WP_Query with Remote Data: Using external API data natively within The Loop™ - Brad Campeau-Laurion from Alley Interactive
* Gutenberg Rollout - Andrew Fleming from Dow Jones
* Transforming the Modern Newsroom for FairfaxMedia with WordPress - Kevin Langley from Human Made
* Security Keys: U2F is for You, Too - Paul Schreiber from FiveThirtyEight
After the talks, we'll head to PHD Terrace at Dream Midtown for complimentary snacks and drinks.
