This Saturday I will be giving my first ever WordCamp talk on “Breaking Away from the Blog: Unconventional WordPress“.
How often have you heard the phrase, “WordPress is great, but I need more than a blog.”? Well, much has changed in the past decade. With the blog market cornered, WordPress is both able and eager to meet new challenges; as the platform has matured, so have its APIs and functionality. The performance that is delivered in each new iteration of WordPress opens the software to an ever-expanding array of possibilities–Wikis, code gists, application documentation, customer management systems, and software services can now be easily (and enjoyably) conquered. This session aims to explore many of these unconventional applications of WordPress, as well as to encourage exploration into the many possibilities offered as the platform continues to advance.

This presentation guides you through the development cycle of a typical WordPress project from installation to product deployment. It discusses why PHP developers should consider using WordPress for future projects, compares WordPress with other development platforms, and discusses security and best practices. It also covers theme and plugin development as well as provides a look at job opportunities and making money in the WordPress ecosystem.
It’s been a long time coming.

Have you ever been interested in contributing to WordPress, but didn’t know how to start? We’ve all been in that position. That’s why we’re putting together a day long WordPress hackathon! We’ll kick off the day with an introduction to core contributing and some information about the WordPress 3.6 development cycle, then we’ll have some lunch and spend the rest of the day working individually or in groups on tickets for core. Bring your laptops, bring your notebooks, but most of all, bring a desire to join the team and contribute.
