This is the local ADVANCED WordPress Developer meetup. Join us at the CO+HOOTS coworking offices at 6 PM on the last Thursday of every month for food, networking, and learning!
6:00 - Doors open, Networking, Food
6:30 - Introductions
We like to ask a few questions to introduce yourself. Your name, who you work for and any new development skills you have learned recently.
6:45 - Developer Roundtable
We will talk about the future of this meetup and our new concept - Nine helpful skills to become a better Advanced WordPress Developer. We will also talk about other Advanced Developer concepts and keep it open to the group.
7:30 - Maura Teal - The WordPress Object Cache
Utilizing caching mechanisms in a WordPress product is a balancing act: what remote calls are cacheable, what queries are slow and only occasionally needed, and how will it all impact the end user? In some cases we can set up our environment for a base level of performance, and in others we'll need to balance data storage (like auto-loaded options) and other background processes so they take the overall environment into consideration. I'll be including my own experiences as a web developer working on a large-scale WordPress multisite as well as sharing the perspective from a hosting company's point of view.
8:30 - Soft close, Networking
9:00 - You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here
