The next WordPress Edmonton meet-up will take place on Monday, November 17, 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.
Speaker: Sally Poulsen of Parcom Online
Topic: An overview of Automattic, the company behind WordPress. Sally is currently working on a trial basis as a “Happiness Engineer” and can provide insight into their hiring process.
Speaker: Keyfer Mathewson of Paper Leaf
Topic: An overview of the process involved with publishing a plug-in developed at Paper Leaf to the official WordPress Plugin Repository.
