This month will be a change of pace with a hands on workshop led by Michael Johnson. Our objectives for this session are to:

  1. Learn how develop locally on your computer with Local by Flywheel
  2. Understand and inspect the difference between WP files and your database
    --15 min Break--
  3. Migrate your website to live (if you have hosting purchased, otherwise you will migrate to another local site) with All-in-One WP Migration
  4. Bonus: Manually install WP and hook up a new database

Before Arriving:
Please bring your computer and install Local by Flywheel:

Before, during and after the workshop we will have time to catch up, discuss what we're being challenged with, and what we'd like for future WP DSM Meetups. All levels of experiences are encouraged to join!
