Montreal WordPress Developer Meetup this thursday

Posted by Jer Clarke on September 22, 2009 · General · WordPress

So yeah, as the title of the last post (which has slowly become ludicrously out of date) implies, WordCamp Montreal was in fact pretty awesome. If you’re a visual kind of person check out the photos.

wordpres-montreal-community-logo-square-400Now a few months have passed since then and its time to move on. Move on to something other than WordPress events? No. Move on to smaller, more regular, less stressful WordPress events (and hopefully some posts here on my blog about other topics, we can still dream).

We’re going to use the Montreal WordPress Community group on facebook to organize evening meetups about once a month (join the group to get invited automatically). Patrick and the members of Station C have generously offered to let us use their coworking space for our get-togethers. This is great cause its sexy and well stocked with tools, but sad cause its not that big. Hopefully we can keep a healthy level of attendance without exploding.

The first meeting will be this thursday, when we’ll have a presentation and discussion about programming tools and how they can speed you up followed by a discussion of GPL and what it means for paid themes, plugins etc. I also told people to bring drinks and food, so it should be a cool party as well. You can read more about it and RSVP on the facebook event listing.

    Hey thanks again for organizing this, great discussion.

    I asked you about Git support, and after a quick search, NetBeans seems to offer some basic Git support :

    The plugin can be found in Netbean’s plugin panel.

    Hey Valerie,

    I’m not sure what kind of photo timer you mean. For the plugin slam my intention was that people with choose WordPress plugins that they like and present them. Your screechy thing isn’t a WP plugin is it?

    If you’re looking for personal gallery themes then doing a google search for WordPress Portfolio theme might help.

    You probably saw my message to the WordCamp montreal list right? You know you can reply there if you want instead of coming to my blog :)

    CKUT sounds fun :) Phone might be easier for me if that’s okay, let me know via. email and I’ll send you my phone number and be ready to answer :)
