    Wordpress Meetup: Planning a Successful WordPress Site

    Lincoln Building

    It always saddens me when people come to me near the end of a project, deadline looming, with a site that has clearly gone off the rails and ask if it can be fixed. The answer is usually 'not without starting over'.

    In this session, I'll provide a blueprint for investing your time and money wisely to end up with a site you love that is also useful, effective and easy to manage. I'll talk about finding a good developer, asking the right questions, and what you as the site owner should be prepared to contribute.

    Speaker Bio

    Kronda Adair is an independent WordPress developer who loves helping people make their sites better. She's spoken at Open Source Bridge, Wordcamp Portland, and recently gave an Ignite talk titled, Stop Making Senseless websites.

    Portland WordPress-Dev Meetup: Vagrant, Your New Best Friend

    Lincoln Building

    Jeremy Felt will be talking about Vagrant at our next meetup:

    Development environments are not often one size fits all. While having a LAMP stack available on your local machine is great, having access to the many variants in the wild is better. Working with many variants and being able to sandbox them away from your operating system is the best.

    In this session, we'll show you how to replace common development environments like MAMP or XAMPP with the much more versatile Vagrant. You'll gain access to a world of various development options while simultaneously keeping your computer clean. When you walk out the door, you'll have a wonderful local WordPress development environment running nginx, mysql, php-fpm and memcached -- or anything else you want -- so that you can better develop for the technology in use on the web today.

    And don't worry, this session is operating system agnostic - Mac OS X, Windows and Linux can all be friends with Vagrant.
