In a few weeks, I’ll be heading to Richmond, VA, to speak at edUi 2011, a two-day conference is presented by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. It provides web professionals who work serving colleges, universities, libraries, museums and other institutions of learning a chance to come together and learn skills from their peers and industry experts. I’m looking forward to the sessions on content strategy (Margot Bloomstein, Jeffrey Zeldman) and on techniques for presenting interaction design (Matt Ventre/Todd Zaki Warfel, Ben Kimmel).
My talk, Advanced WordPress Features and Customizations, will be on Friday, Oct. 14. We often use WordPress as a content management system here at Imaginuity for client websites, and I will be walking through some of the advanced techniques I use on those and on other sites I have built to accompany the university courses I teach. I’m honored to have the chance to give one of the three talks on WordPress at edUi 2011.
If Richmond is too far away for you to travel, you can see me rehearse my talk in Dallas at the next monthly meeting of the D/FW WordPress Meetup group. I’ll be presenting it on Saturday, Sept. 24; the meeting starts at 4 p.m. If you have never been, this is a great local group for meeting people to talking about WordPress and web development. I hope to see you there!
