We are planning on covering at least two topics PLUS an open Q&A on any beginner or related WordPress topic. We have an OPEN SLOT right now for someone if they want to talk about something related to WordPress – or just share with us what plugins or themes you’ve used in the last month.
Topic 1: We’ll be talking about various tips that can help up be a better WordPress user and/or answering general questions.
Topic 2: Hooks: Actions & Filters – Learn how to use the hidden potential of existing PHP functions in WordPress Themes & Plugins. Basic PHP knowledge will be required to make use of hooks. If you don’t know PHP or haven’t worked with it, this is a great eye-opener why you should dabble around with it. Presented by Andreas Lopez.
Topic 3: Making your WordPress website look great: a branding & design primer for non-designers. Presented by Naima Sheik. In this no-theory, all-practical presentation:
– Discover the basic building blocks of your visual brand
– Learn how to quickly put them together using online tools – no Photoshop or prior design skills required
– See how to apply them to your website
Room Numbers: Knight Auditorium #1124 in the Carl DeSantis Bldg (We are waiting to confirm but this SHOULD be the room. Check back!)
Parking Pass: Coming Soon

Might be pizza, might not be. We’ll see :-)
