Presented by Amy Kapernick

Amy will be sharing with us her tried and tested workflow for how she uses Git version control for WordPress, going into detail about all the fun stuff like automatic deployments, what challenges are involved when using Git with WordPress compared to a traditional static website, and why it's important even with a team of one.

Amy is a freelance developer with her own business, passionate about working with other freelancers and learning everything she can about the web. She’s been a freelancer on the side for 4 years, and most recently worked at an agency in Subiaco.

Amy also spends her time helping out as a co-organiser for Fenders (a community group of front-end developers in Perth), other community events (such as She Codes, formerly Perth{web}Girls) and works as an evangelist for YOW! Conference. She blogs in her spare time (about tech, the web and life), and volunteers as a reviewer for the Fringe World Festival in Perth. Amy has also started The Freelance Guide to help other freelancers.

Presented by Jo Minney

You've just updated your WordPress website because you got sick of those annoying red circles on your dashboard... and everything broke. Now what? Learn how to troubleshoot your website when something isn't working as you expect, and how to conduct a health check on your website to minimise the chances of it happening in the first place!

Jo Minney runs a web development agency (House Digital) in Perth, Western Australia. She has managed the Perth WordPress Meetups for the past year and a half, and has been a regular presenter on a range of topics from Security to Page Speed at both local meetups and WordCamps whenever she can get to them. Jo is also an advisor with the ASBAS program run through Business Station which offers consulting and workshops that are heavily subsidised by government funding.

Jo also helps facilitate an organisation called SheCodes - Formerly Perth{web}Girls - that is aimed at getting more girls into the web industry, and wrote the WordPress tutorial that has been completed by around 300 women over the past year. With a background in process engineering and software development, Jo is a strong advocate for developing better user experiences and pushing the boundaries of what WordPress can do.
