We’re back again in 2019 with more great topics, and we are excited to be bringing you a presentation this month by Jo Minney from House Digital on how to create a better user experience – for those of us actually editing a WordPress site! Jo will run through some examples of steps that she takes to help her customers easily update content on their website without getting overwhelmed or frustrated.

— Who will find this interesting? —
This topic may be particularly useful for developers who are selling WordPress websites to other people, or for users who have a WordPress website and often find themselves avoiding updating it (e.g. adding content, making simple changes…) because they find the back-end experience too overwhelming.

The agenda will be similar to previous events:

6:30pm – 7:00pm: Networking & pizza/drinks (Thanks Sponsors!)
7:00pm – 7:05pm: Introductions & Housekeeping
7:05pm – 7:25pm: Presentation
7:30pm – 8:00pm: Q&A with the expert panel

Refreshments are provided by our ongoing sponsor WP Engine, and our February sponsor House Digital. The fabulous venue where our events are held is the (newly renovated!) Riff Town Hall that is generously provided to us free of charge by Spacecubed.
