WordPress Adelaide had a meetup this Tuesday at The Duke of Brunswick Hotel which was a change of venue from last year. Alex hosted the usual 101 talk which for those who haven’t attended WordPress Adelaide Meetups before, covers the basic features of WordPress and goes into basic good practice terms.
The meetup attendance was full requiring extra chairs to be sought and had a great mixture of developers, WordPress users and beginners who are just starting out on their WordPress journey.
The main topic of the night was the ACF (Advanced Custom Fields) plugin by Elliot Condon which as of the time of posting has over 1 million installations and is supported across 12 languages. And the most exciting part of the presentation was having Elliot himself visit from intestate to talk to the WordPress Adelaide Meetup group.
Alex and Elliot both held their own presentations showing the basic functions of using both the free and premium versions of ACF. They also bravely wrote PHP to demonstrate how easy it is to implement ACF into your existing theme and Alex also covered the ACF shortcode integrations with a demo.
