The July 2019 meetup will focus on eCommerce, with at least one of the talks focussing specifically on WooCommerce.

As usual, the WordPress 101 session will be first, which aims to briefly introduce WordPress to people just starting their journey.

First Up, we will be running a ‘WooCommerce 101’ to give an overview of WooCommerce to people new to the plugin or eCommerce in general.

Next, Will Turner will be discussing conversion tracking and purchase attribution with Google Analytics – find out what traffic sources are driving sales and optimise your store!

Finally there will be a developer talk focussing on the main WooCommerce class, the god object which controls many facets of WooCommerce, and its friends. We’ll discuss how we can use it in our custom theme and plugin development.
