Intermediate WordPress class this Sunday, limited space available

This Sunday, I’ll be teaching the class Meta Valuables, Unleash the hidden power of WordPress meta data. It’s happening at Cospace, from 3-6PM, we’re going to be coding live in class, and your attendance scores you a free copy of my awesome new ebook.

The course is being offered through SkillShare, a new startup for organizing local learning sessions taught by hobbyists and professionals (like me!). Tickets are $25, but at the time of publishing, I’m a featured class, so you can score a $5 off scholarship from Appssavvy (details on the Skillshare page).

Because we’ll be doing lots of hands-on coding, this class is limited to just 20 students (a third the spots of which are already taken). I anticipate this class filling up, so if you’d like to join us, head on over to Skillshare and claim yourself a ticket.

The ebook: 45 pages of awesome

Included with your attendance is a free, printed copy of my new ebook, written specifically for this course. Meta Valuables is a 45 page ebook that takes a revealing look into the world of WordPress meta data. Jam packed with code samples and quick tips, these lessons will have you developing more dynamic templates in no time!

Aside from the paper version for reference during class, you’ll also get access to free downloads of DRM-free PDF and TXT versions, perfect for throwing on your smart devices, emailing to yourself, etc.

Free hosting for all students from WP Engine

In addition to the ebook, all students will also get a FREE personal hosting plan from WP Engine, the finest damn host WordPress could ever ask for. They’re based here in Ausin and have a habit of swooping in and supporting events like this, so you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on @WPengine.

To claim your free hosting (for life!), simply join us on June 10 and I’ll give you the secret URL to access the offer. And while we’re talking about awesome folks sponsoring the event, I’d like to give a shout out to Cospace, who hooked me up with the class space. If you’re in Austin looking for a coworking space, come give Cospace a look.

What to expect

The full details are available on the Skillshare page, but students should come to class with a computer and test install of WordPress ready to work. We’re going to code PHP live in class, and having your own set of tools is definitely the way to get the most out of this course.

We’re going to look at functions like get_post_meta, add_post_meta, get_user_meta, update_user_meta, it’s going to be madness! Even if you’ve never touched custom fields or meta data before, you’ll leave this class with an solid understand of how all this junk works. See you there!
