WordPress Meetup Groups

Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis (commonly once a month).

Anything that brings together 2 or more people to share their WordPress experiences counts β€” there’s no minimum number of attendees or required format.

These events (commonly referred to as meetups, which can be confusing since people often use the same word to describe the group itself) take many formats:

  • presentations/lecture series,
  • hackathons,
  • social gatherings,
  • workshops,
  • co-working,
  • running a WordPress help desk,
  • contributor sprints/drives, and others.

Coding Standards

Why have coding standards?

Coding standards help avoid common coding errors, improve the readability of code, and simplify modification. They ensure that files within the project appear as if they were created by a single person.

Following the standards means anyone will be able to understand a section of code and modify it, if needed, without regard to when it was written or by whom.

If you are planning to contribute to WordPress core, you need to familiarize yourself with these standards, as any code you submit will need to comply with them.


Setup of local development server

The four popular local servers are (not in any particular order):

Your choice of a local server program will primarily depend on which operating system you run on your computer. There are a couple that work on multiple operating systems, and all will give you a solid local development environment.



An integrated development environment (IDE) is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for software development. An IDE normally consists of a source code editor, build automation tools and a debugger.

Options available are Sublime 2/3, Netbeans, PHP Storm, Ellipse, ATOM..

I currently use Sublime and would recommend the following packages

  • Theme Soda 3
  • HTML-CSS-JS-prettify
  • Phpcs
  • Terminal
  • SFTP

The idea behind WP-CLI is that it allows you to interact with, and manage, WordPress sites via a command line interface. According to the official documentation, it's a command line alternative to using the traditional WordPress admin user interface.

The command line approach makes sense as you can typically do things on a computer much quicker via the command line, and the WP-CLI is no different. If you've ever used the command line on Windows, or the Terminal on macOS, then you'll be right at home using the WP-CLI.


WP-CLI provides a command-line interface for many actions you might perform in the WordPress admin. For instance, wp plugin install --activate (doc) lets you install and activate a WordPress plugin:

$ wp plugin install user-switching --activate

Installing User Switching (1.0.9)

Downloading install package from https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/user-switching.1.0.9.zip...

Unpacking the package...

Installing the plugin...

Plugin installed successfully.

Activating 'user-switching'...

Plugin 'user-switching' activated.

Success: Installed 1 of 1 plugins.
