January Meet-Up

The next WordPress Edmonton meet-up will take place on Monday, January 19, 2014 at Startup Edmonton HQ (top floor of the Mercer Building, 10359 104 St). We’ll kick things off at 5:45 PM, just in time for most people to come straight from work. We will have two speakers on two different topics – a Beginner’s Topic geared toward those who are interested in learning more about the general overview and basics of using WordPress as a web publishing tool, as well as an Advanced Topic geared more toward those who are involved with applied development and coding for WordPress. Each speaker will give a presentation on their topic for about 10 minutes, followed by questions and discussion from the floor. At the end of both presentations, there should be time for socializing.

Beginner’s Topic

Speaker: Daelan Wood
Topic: “Building and Running an E-Commerce Site with WordPress”

Advanced Topic

Speaker: Joseph Luis C.M.
Topic: “Transfer your Website the Ninja Way (or what to do when your transfer plugin fails)” – There are many plugins that help you to transfer your WordPress website from one server to another. What do you do when the plugin fails or if you want to do it “manually”? Find tonight about the key steps of the transfer and some tips to do it like a pro, a pro ninja that is.
