Glasgow WordPress meetup – Tues. 24th Jan. 2017

The Glasgow WordPress meetup started the year last Thursday 12th Jan. with a great co-working evening and is meeting again this month for a round-table discussion that should give for great conversation and a useful exchange of ideas for everyone.

Come and join us at meetup.com. All welcomed!

What it takes to build a website. Focus: web designer’s role.

Traditionally, the 3 roles involved in getting a website up and running have been very separate and well-defined. There is the website owner, the web designer and the backend developer. And although normally there is enough communication between them to get the job done, sometimes there is also a fair bit of misunderstanding.

This event will be the first of a series of three, where we will focus on each of the roles in turn, starting with that of web designer and frontend developer.

We are currently working to bring you a couple of lightning talks plus a roundtable discussion covering points such as:

• What makes a good theme or template?

• What would you add to the list of must-have best practices of web design?

•  Custom vs template.

• Frameworks vs. child theme.

• Which criteria do you use to decide when to use either?

• From the web design point of view, is the customer always right?

If you are a frontend developer, come along to share your thought processes and compare them with others.

If you are a website owner or backend developer, come along to find out what makes a web designer tick!

If you would be interested in giving one of the lightning talks, please get in touch on hello@wpglasgow.org
