Who is this for?

Any plugin or theme developer! Some PHP knowledge will be required. This meet up will be centered around PHP coding for WordPress and will be dealing with PHP issues at various skill levels (starter to advanced). Also, this is also a great place for those wishing to learn more about WordPress development.

Topics so far are:

  • Workflow and SVN: best practices.

  • Frontend optminization through smarter plugin api use.

  • Submitting patches for core
  • Integration with other systems

Just a reminder to bring your laptop (if you have one) as well as some questions or coding/development issues you’d like to talk about as a group. If you have a lesson you learned that you’d like to share with the group bring that along too.
