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.
Ever wonder what people discuss at the RubiABQ meetup? It’s been a pretty wide and eclectic set of topics over the last year, and sometimes it’s even Ruby. The last several meetups have been deep into Ruby and Rails topics. Last night we started with a continuation talk about Forwardable. This involved a comparison of ivars vs constants and a conversation about the singleton class.
Last night we had a great WordPress Developers’ Meetup centered around what tools people use in their workflow. The meeting was so information laden that I decided we needed a summary. I’m sure I’ll miss some of the tools presented, if so drop me a line and I’ll add them.
We have a lot of Macintosh users in the group, and not many Windows users, so we discussed a number of Mac specific tools.
Many of us missed Kenneth Ingham’s excellent presentation last night on WordPress Security. We’re hoping to talk him into giving it again sometime soon! In the meantime, there’s a pointer to the Slides for his talk.
