A Seacoast NH WordPress Developers Meetup took place on May 7, 2014 and Amanda Giles gave a presentation on some simple tricks to customize and improve the WordPress Admin pages. Thanks to Alpha Loft in Portsmouth, NH for providing our venue.
The meeting was well attended with 10 WordPress developers. Brief introductions from around the table spurred a conversation about the best WordPress plugin to use for backups.
