    It sounds like a great workshop. I wish I could come, but I have a schedule conflict!

    Some example sites:
    crwine.com - no custom programming but customized css, purchased template, plugins and wooCommerce

    fitforlifeiowa.com very basic, bare bones informational site based off a free template, eventbrite integration but no current events listed.

    svhap.org - purchased template with customized css, basic integrations, they use a custom event plugin that they purchased.

    bimmridder.com - taking it a step further with custom database integration tied to their product catalog and custom post types to build on the fly online catalog pages. Built off a purchased template with custom page layouts and customized css

    I'm so sorry, I will be at a funeral in Vermont this weekend and will not make it to the WordPress session. I hope all goes well!

    Do we need more volunteers? I've never done any self-hosting or heavy development, but I'm familiar with the basics - posting, setting up widgets, menus, etc. Happy to help if I can!

      We are in good shape now (1:1 right now), but let's touch base as it gets closer in case it fills up. Thanks!

    I've done quite a bit of development in WP, I'd be happy to help others out.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
