Our June meeting was our first ever round of Lightning Talks, and it was fantastic! Here’s an overview:
David White: Reducing Spam
Robin Cornett: Front Pages, Blog Pages, and Posts Pages
Rob Clark: Google Maps API
Rob impressed us all with a presentation on using the Google Maps API to allow a client to update their site with a live map showing road issues, using CMB2. The plugin he wrote is available for you to try yourself: CMB2 Roadway Segments.
Kyle Johnson: Website Hospitality
Kyle finished out our evening with a thought provoking discussion on website hospitality, encouraging us to make sure our site is welcoming, and that what we ask of our users is reasonable. For example, if we ask visitors to fill out a form, let’s make sure that it’s not overwhelming or asking for unnecessary or too much information.
