Talk: Custom post type meta

Over the course of many WordPress site builds, I found a constant problem when dealing with custom post types: I wanted to add meta data to a post type like you do a post. In this talk I gave a brief overview of why he needed to be able to do this and how he went about it, building a plugin to provide this functionality.

Talk: From local to staging to live

After starting my speaking career in April at WordCamp Sheffield and doing talks at WordCamp Manchester and WordCamp Bournemouth I was kindly invited to speak at WordPress London by Ngaire Ackerley.

Having only been to London a few times in my entire life it was nice to be invited down and I decided to make it an overnight stay, to ease the journey pain!

The meet up was great with some really good WordPress folks taking part. My slides for my presentation titled Local to Staging to Live – Using Version Control and Deployment Tools are below:
