WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup – 19th October 2022 – Local development environments

Join the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup on 19th October 2022 to discuss local development environments.

  • Do you run local and/or staging copies of your live sites?
  • Do you regularly backup your live sites and restore them to other environments?
  • Do you develop enhancements to your sites in these environments?
  • Do you maintain the production environment and development environment and keep the content reconciled?

If the answers to any of these questions are Yes, then you’re invited to share your methods at the Online WordPress Portsmouth Meetup.

  • What’s your setup?
  • What do you use it for?
  • What tools do you use?
  • How do you do these tasks;
    • backup/export
    • restore/import
    • reconcile
    • develop
    • test
    • debug
    • release?
  • Why would you recommend your solution to others?
  • What are the pros and cons?
  • Anything else?

You don’t have to answer all of the above, but if you’re prepared to give a lightning talk ( 5-15 mins ) then please let us know in advance.

The event starts at 7pm BST (6pm UTC). We will be providing a Zoom link for you to connect to the online Meetup.
