-- 7:10 Opening Remarks --

-- 7:15: "Take Control: Working With Custom Fields and Custom Posts"

Rob Gillan has been programming for over 20 years and made the move to custom WordPress development in 2015. In this talk, Rob will be going over some of the flexibility offered to website developers who use custom fields (ACF) and custom post types (CPT UI) within WordPress. This developer-focused presentation will be ideal for anyone with some PHP experience who wants to learn more about the power of customization within the WordPress framework.

- Create and display custom data in your theme using PHP and Advanced Custom Fields
- Organize your website content with custom post types using PHP and CPT UI

*This is more of a developer focused talk. Those comfortable with HTML and a bit of PHP will get a lot out of it. We still encourage regulars to attend for the Happiness Bar afterwards.

--8:00: Happiness Bar --
We will randomize attendees into smaller breakout rooms. You can share your screen to get help, feedback, learn something new or help a buddy out. Chat and get to know fellow WordPress bloggers, designers and developers.
