Two Meetups for June: WordPress Loves Backbone JS and Plugin Ignite Talks

We have two awesome meetups scheduled for June.

Developer: WordPress Loves Backbone JS

Date & Time: Monday, June 10th at 6:30 pm

WordPress 3.5 is the first version of WordPress to include Backbone.js – a powerful and popular Javascript framework for taming your Javascript. With Backbone.js, your data can be encapsulated into models and collections that are then exposed to the DOM through views – views which automatically update as your data changes – with out-of-the-box integration to RESTful APIs and more.

We’re excited to have Allen Snook and Beau Lebens, from Automattic’s Team Social, tell us about some of their recent work with Backbone. They’ll also walk us through an example plugin that you can use as a springboard for developing your own Backbone.js savvy extensions to WordPress.

Note: Due to limited space, we’re capping signups to 70. If you RSVP and realize later you can’t make the meetup, please change your status so someone else can attend.

User: Plugin Ignite Talks

Date & Time: Monday, June 24th at 6:30 pm

For the next PDXWP user meetup, we want to showcase the plugins which make WordPress as awesome as it is.

Know a plugin you just can’t live without? Want to practice your public speaking skills in front of a lively and welcoming audience? We welcome you to apply by June 10th.

Love discovering new plugins? Join us! We’ll follow the Ignite format for the evening — 10 lucky PDXWP members selected by Daniel Payne and Kory McDow will show off their favorite plugin in 5 minutes and 20 slides a piece.

Hope to see you there!
