Until "Local by Flywheel", developing WordPress in a local environment was a hassle. Assuming you could get WAMP, MAMP or XAMP to play nicely, making WordPress sites with a desktop app could be a frustrating experience.
"Local by Flywheel", solved all of that. With an easy to use interface creating new or imported sites is a breeze. It takes all the yuckiness out of the old way of local development & makes it something that everyone can do.
In this demo I'll show you how to:
1. Create a new site.
2. How to access local files & PHPMyAdmin.
3. How to import & export a site.
4. How to use a Blueprint.
5. Adjust your settings.

OPENING PRESENTATION: Best practices for a search engine friendly site
Every webmaster with a Wordpress site should know best practices for ensuring a search engine friendly site. In this presentation, Edward will show the basics of using Google Search Console (Google's proprietary portal into their search index), & his two favorite search engine optimization plugins for Wordpress. He'll also answer all the SEO questions you can dish out!
Come prepared with your laptops & plenty of questions. Extra bonus to those that come with their website already verified on Google Search Console (it's just like verifying on Google Analytics!).
