Topic: Roots: Building Better WordPress sites faster
Presented By: Simeon Griggs
Location: River City Labs, Fortitude Valley

Simeon is not the most technically savvy WordPress developer (by his own admission) but uses a slightly more complex setup to develop websites. Why? Better sites, better skills, simpler deployment. This talk will walk you through everything Simeon wishes he was told first, before he set off using the Roots development framework.

How to access Building: Please note RCL has moved to 315 Brunswick St. Head to Brunswick St Mall, locate the “TCB Building” half way up and follow signs for “THE PRECINCT” (and the WordPress Meetup signs with red arrows), take the elevator to Level 3.
