Marty Kokes, one of the web developers here at spoke at the Minneapolis/St. Paul WordPress User Group meeting last night about Gravity Flow.

Since we’ve finally worked all the bugs out of our A/V and recording setup, we have a recording of this month’s talks! was the host, and BrilliantPlugins had cake and beverages to celebrate their soft launch (public launch will be March 1st).

Marty Kokes – Using Gravity Flow with Gravity Forms

Most of the time Gravity Forms functions as a one way street. A visitor submits a form and then you receive it. By using Gravity Flow it’s possible to add a variety of steps to the process to create a workflow around your form. In this talk I’ll be giving a tutorial about how to build a simple workflow processes around forms.

You can also grab Gravity Flow off of GitHub if you’d like to try before you buy. Granted this is the bleeding edge development branch so your mileage may vary, but you can kick the tires a bit.

Gravity Flow

Alex & Eric Celeste – Docker, XDebug, Visual Studio Code

We will focus on Docker (a kind of virtual machine tool), to mount local copies of WordPress sites for development. We’ll demonstrate editing a site from Visual Studio Code. Note that is not the full Visual Studio, but just the code editor from Microsoft. Also we’ll cover getting started with debugging using XDebug in VS Code. We will keep all of this incredibly brief, just showing folks what is possible, not really getting very deeply into any of it. We are excited to share this, it has been really fun to work this way and we think others might enjoy it too.
