WordUp Austin WordPress Sessions

Thanks to the guys over at Co-Space, WPEngine and http://wordupaustin.com for hosting an awesome event on Saturday! With over 40 people in attendance it was a nerd paradise and even though there were 40 developers with 40+ laptops and 1 fiber connection, we didn’t crash the wifi!

The most beneficial nerdstorming session to me, and probably the simplest one was the WordUp Austin Plugin Roundup. After gathering over 40 WordPress professionals opinions on their favorite and must have plugins here are the finalists:

WordUp Austin Developers Must Have WordPress Plug-In’s

[list blue_arrow]

  • Gravity Forms ($)
  • Askimet
  • W3 Total Cache
  • Yoast WordPress SEO
  • S2Member
  • ShareThis
  • Regenerate Thumbnails
  • Disqus
  • Xili Tidy Tags


To name a few, the above favorites are the ones that caught my eye. All of these plug-in’s can be downloaded from the WordPress plug-in’s directory and all are free besides Gravity Forms, but GForms was deemed to be worth the money for the developers license. Looking forward to many more WordUp events and WordCamp sessions!
