As we approach the 200 member mark, we're excited to delve into a very popular and important WordPress topic: plugins! Come join us for what will be a friendly, informative and engaging conversation.
We'll follow our format of two short (5 minutes) presentations, followed by a single longer one (20 minutes or longer). The longer presentation will serve as the basis for and introduction to a wider, open discussion among the group.
Our main presentation will focus on WordPress plugins. There's a plugin for just about everything these days. But what happens when that perfect plugin is missing the one feature you needed or some bit of text it throws on your site isn't exactly what you want? You don't have to be afraid of plugin code! We'll go through the basics of how plugins work with real world examples. At the end you should feel comfortable taking a peek into the inner workings of public plugins. And you'll get some pointers to get you started writing your own plugins.
