WordPress Leeds is a monthly meetup for people interested in WordPress. The meetups are open to anyone who uses WordPress in any capacity. Our attendees tend to be developers, bloggers, designers or people interested in learning more about WordPress. Come along and network with others.
Every month we cover a different topic and before the event we publish what is going to be happening on Twitter.
We have two speakers this month.
Mark Wilkinson – Easy Extensible Plugins
We all love WordPress, many of use because of the ease in which we can extend and modify its functionality. Plugins themselves take advantage of this to add something extra to WordPress. In my experience most plugins are never exactly as you want them. Therefore being allowed to change them is essential.
Mark will introduce methods you can use when developing your plugin that will allow others to extend or modify its functionality or output. The talk is suitable for beginners and intermediate developers.
Matthew Haines-Young – An introduction to Gutenberg.
Gutenberg is the new WordPress editor which is in development & is currently released as a plugin. Matt will talk about the new features and demonstrate how it currently works.
