Divi Meetup: Site Speed and Image Optimization Tips

October 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Introduction
============
This is the first event in NZ hosted by Elegant Themes the maker of Divi.

Why this Meetup?
=================
The aim is to build an open and collaborative community who love Divi and wish to support and share ideas to make the world a better Divi Nation.

Many Meetups have a facebook group or Slack channel to connect, support and share ideas. We want to eat our own dog food (pun hopefully you get it) and do this with a site built with WordPress, BuddyPress and Divi. A private area to connect, collaborate and get help, plus share projects you are working on.

Networking
===========
Are you working on a new project and looking for ideas?

Come and network and meet other entrepreneurs, Divi enthusiasts, and maybe even have a little fun along the way.

Guest Speaker Presentation
===========================

Each month we have a different topic from our guest presenter as well as a demo of some new Divi feature releases.

The focus this month is website load speeds including the important area of image optimization. This is such a key area due to google using page load speed as search ranking factor.

At this Meetup our presenter is Rob Robertson. Rob is the owner of Unboxed Digital and has been a WordPress developer for almost 10 years.

Evening Agenda
================

6:00pm Pizza and Networking
6:30pm Introduce yourself so we can all support each other
6:45pm Guest Speaker presentation as above
7:15pm Open discussion and feedback from other people attending on the guest speakers topic
7:30pm Divi Feature Updates
7:45pm Mingle and Networking

Pizza Sponsor
=============

Pizza will be supplied at 6pm by Unboxed Digital, so please make sure you update RSVP and change it if you cannot attend to help for catering purposes.

What is Divi?
============

Divi is the most popular WordPress Theme in the world and one of the best themes for beginners and advanced WordPress users. See https://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/divi/. It is highly flexible, has loads of built-in functionality, and can help you create any style of website in an efficient, creative manner. It’s a great theme for designers, developers, and general users. This Meetup welcomes WordPress users and Divi lovers of all levels!

Our Sponsors for this Meetup
============================
https://unboxeddigital.co.nz/
Pizza is provided by Unboxed Digital, who build digital communities using the non agency model. They explain this as they don’t have pool tables, fancy pants boardrooms and flash signs on their building. In fact they don’t even have a real office. Their business is built on a team that all work from home. Plus all new sites are built with Divi, while they do own several other page builders and themes to maintain client sites, they know, use and love Divi exclusively on any new sites.

They are a Groundhogg Market Automation Certified Partner, their specialty is building sites with Divi and Groundhogg, which will often include some combination of BuddyPress and/or a LMS or Membership plugin.
