Busy week at Ideas & Coffee

This week has been fun at Ideas and Coffee. We had Sam Hotchkiss’s very popular WordPress Developers Meetup on Monday. Alonso and Florian of Hermes Development spoke about developing plugins for customers. On Wednesday at RubiABQ, Cliff continued working on bringing the Built in New Mexico website up to Rails 5. It was a struggle with GitHub being down for about half an hour. There are an amazing number of things that become more difficult with GitHub being unavailable, but we got lots of interesting information none the less. Thursday brought the general WordPress Meetup on the topic of Themes. Thanks to Alonso, Florian, and Sheelah we got some insight into how people create bespoken WordPress themes using UnderScores. And we had a fun conversation about what all to look at when evaluating a WordPress theme.

I completely failed at taking pictures during the events. Too busy enjoying the great flow of information, so I’m attaching a picture of the Sandias as a bonus 🙂

Plugins and Pizza

Last night’s WordPress Meetup had lots of useful information at several levels of expertise. We had Alonso and Florian from Hermes Development talk about a plugin they developed to take a static snapshot of a WordPress website, and Brian Stinar of Noventum Custom Software talked about several custom plugins he’s developed. One of these works with CSV files as  a flat file database, allowing customers more autonomy when working with their own data. Then the group talked about favorite plugins they used. Here is a summary of some of the plugins that were mentioned. If I’ve missed any please contact me and I’ll add them to the list.
