Many people from the WordPress meetups have been asking for a full day workshop on building WordPress plugins (and themes, but that’s another workshop for another time). We took a survey a while back to confirm the interest so happy to say it’s finally happening.
What: The WordPress Plugin Workshop is a near full-day workshop focused on instructing people to (1) learn how WordPress plugin work and (2) build a basic WordPress plugin from scratch.
Who This Workshop IS NOT For: If you have never coded before, have no idea what PHP or HTML is, or have never used WordPress before… this workshop isn’t for you right now. Come to a meetup instead.
Times: Workshop starts at 9am and ends around 2:30pm with a lunch break.
Date: January 5th, 2019
Location: University of Miami (Main Coral Gables Campus).
We are keeping the workshop SMALL so there are a limited numbers of seats. Once they are gone, they are gone and we’ll see if another workshop could be planned in the coming months.
What To Bring: If you have a wifi-capable laptop (or a tablet if you feel comfortable) please bring it. They are not required, but since the point of the workshop is for you to build a plugin, it’s highly recommended. A notepad and a pen is recommended too. Make sure devices are charged – limited outlets are available.
Any Perks: We will see, but at the very least i’m planning on providing code snippets that you can easily access, review, and copy during the class and afterwards. Depending on how many register, we might also have the ability to record the class – if we do, that will be available to the class afterwards. Any slides, code examples, videos, etc. presented during the class are made available to all attendees at no charge.
Food: As of now, you will be on your own for breakfast. There are several areas nearby for lunch that should be open (Subway and Starbucks), but we’ll confirm if lunch is catered or not by Jan. 1st.
Refunds: Refunds can be issued up to 7 days before the workshop. If there’s a waiting list and you refund, you cannot come back and grab back your spot (you’ll be added to a waiting list).
Student Discounts: There are no discounts UNLESS you are a current student at University of Miami. If you are, contact me directly. There are a limited number of spots being held for UM students.
Please note that this event is not officially associated with the WordPress meetup or the WordPress Foundation.
