We're a group of local WordPress developers, designers, and publishers who get together to share our knowledge and experience, and to meet other WordPress users in the area. The WordPress meetup is open to all who love WordPress --- join us!
Use the most popular content management system (CMS) to create a static website? It sounds insane but it turns out to be a powerful way to get high performing and secure websites while having the ease-of-use and plugin/theme ecosystem of WordPress.
In this session you’ll learn about why you might want to generate static sites, the big (huge!) caveats, the plugins and services you can use, and gain insight into the experiences the speaker has had migrating multiple sites.
Come prepared to learn about how you can combine the power of WordPress with the speed and security of static sites - it’s not as crazy as it sounds!
This event will discuss some coding topics. All are welcome and may benefit regardless of experience level.
