June 27, 2017 Meeting Recap

Testing Updates
@melindahelt’s intro to WP at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Kent went really well: For someone who wants to do a start to finish WP 101, I’d say plan on 5 hours of instruction time for a workshop where the users are going to be building a simple site. Longer if you are going to cover installing WP and/or setting up hosting accounts. With poopy.life they were all up and running in less than 5 mins. That included basic WC breaks and no quizzes, using a prepared site. She included a downloadable .zip file with all the images and starter copy to save time.

There was some discussion on the pros and cons of using poopy.life (including lack of access for more dev-oriented LPs and the lack of longevity after your last login. Another service called thisistap.com was discussed.
