The WordPress Melbourne meet up returns for another month. Our WordPress meetup covers everything from choosing Themes & Plugins and setting up your site, through to theme and plugin development and everything related to Core.
We currently run one meetup per month. We try to alternate between end-user/beginner talks one month and development/technical talks the following month. As it all depends on availability of presenters though, please make sure you keep an eye out on the topics for the particular month once we update the meetup page with all the details.
We’re always looking for new speakers, so contact the organisers in the meetup.com sidebar if you have an idea for a talk. We usually start the night with a light meal before the talks.
You can find links to past presentation slides (when available), over on our WP Melbourne website – http://wpmelb.org
RSVP’s for this meetup will open 7 days before the meetup starts

== 25 Steps Before Launching Your Website ==
There’s a lot to do before making your site available to your live audience. Have you installed caching? Do your contact forms work properly? The list goes on! Anthony’s compiled a checklist of steps that you should undertake before launching any of your websites.
This presentation is suitable for everyone, regardless of whether you’re just building your own website or you’re developing and supporting client websites.
