We’re hosting the next London WordPress Meetup – come along!

by Chris Adams

We’re big fans of WordPress at Headshift. A fair few of us have been building sites with it since the 1.2 days, and these days, a good portion of our work involves extending it for clients, and advising them on how to get the most from the platform.

In fact, if you’re viewing this post on our site, you’re looking at one of our more recent examples of WordPress work in the company.

Next Thursday on July 28th, we’re giving something back

We’ll be hosting the third London WordPress meetup in our offices, and in the line among the line up of talks on the night, we’ll be covering how some of our people use it in and outside of work.

Here’s the line up of talks so far:

7:20 – Basic – Introduction to WordPress

Emily Webber
You can do an amazing amount with WordPress without actually being a coder. Emily Webber will outline how she’s been running and growing WordPress-based social network Yeah! Hackney since last October, without any development staff, and give the lowdown on which plugins she’s been using to do this.

7:40 – Intermediate – an introduction to theme development

Keith Devon
Wordpress developer Keith Devon will give an introduction to theme development/customisation – introducing key concepts like template files and child themes.

8:00 – Advanced – Looking under the hood of WordPress

Chris Adams
Having a full understanding of what happens when a request from a browser hits a site, and how WordPress builds a page, with help from plugins and theme functions, is invaluable if you want to build your own plugins. This is a technical talk for developers and themers interested in deeper understanding of the WordPress’s architecture.

Fancy coming along?

If you’re interested in the platform, or work with it professionally, why not swing by on the 28th?

Space is limited however, to be sure to RSVP at on the London WordPress meetup group.

Oh by the way, you’re interested in WordPress, we are hiring.
