WordPress is a great open source development platform which has gained enormous popularity in recent years. More than just a blogging platform, WordPress powers websites and can be used as a CMS (content management system).
This meetup is for both WordPress users, designers, and developers. All are encouraged and welcome to share knowledge with one another. Let's make this a collaborative effort where we can learn from one another and be inspired to try new things in WordPress.
If you're interested, please join this group and let us know what you would like to see or what you have to share.
The many platforms and applications out there can sometimes feel overwhelming, particularly if WordPress is used as a backbone to your business. This month we will look closer at integrations between different platforms. We will talk about customizing web hooks, API interrelations, and custom functionality for “triggers” to allow marketing, productivity or e-commerce tools to make life easier.
We are now meeting in North Hampton at CoWerc in North Hampton. Pizza will be available starting at 6pm and we'll get rolling around 6:15 or so.
CoWerc in North Hampton is providing us the use of their great location (with parking!). Check out http://countdown.cowerc.com/ to learn more. They sell 5 or 10 day passes in addition to memberships.
A2 Hosting provides fast, reliable hosting for WordPress. Use "SEACOSTWP" for a 51% discount on your first payment (even if it's for a full year!). As a result of their sponsorship, we now have pizza and drinks at our meetup each month.
WordPress users and developers of all levels are welcome at all of our meetups. Sometimes our topics are more advanced and aimed for developers, but we offer more general introductory topics as well.
I would love to create a NH WordPress online presence - someplace where folks could post WordPress-related jobs, request help, find a designer/developer/SEO person, etc.
I registered the domain name nhwp.net after discussions around this at a recent Developers meetup. If folks were interested, I could see doing a hack-a-thon where we get the site up and running to include info such as jobs, forum, blog (http://bostonwp.org/ is a great example), but also a calendar of WordPress related events and, most importantly, user profiles where we could post some info about ourselves, our work, and a portfolio link.
I've intentionally not put a date on this. Please sign up if you're interested and we will find a date that works for interested parties. I'm thinking this could work well as a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
If we're successful with this, it would be a great resource for us and the state. I could also see doing future WordPress hackathons aimed at creating sites for non-profit groups or other good causes.
