Unique Uses for WordPress: A show and tell event

You probably know better by now than to think of WordPress as 'just a blog'. But do you have an idea of what's really possible with little old WordPress?

C'mon out to Unique Uses for WordPress and be wowed by demos and case studies of sites where WordPress was put to work and tricked out in ways you can't even imagine.

Who is this for?

These presentations will be helpful for developers, designers, and site owners alike - anyone with an interest in seeing what WordPress can do. Some aspects will involve nerdy tech talk, but even a beginner will enjoy seeing what people have done with WordPress and get ideas for where they might take their own projects.

    Had to speak at a Glendale City Planning Commission hearing that went way late so... I missed the meetup, darn it. Will links to the sites featured tonight be published on these or other pages? Would love to see them!

    The work shown at this meetup on unique uses for Wordpress was really amazing. From apps in which Wordpress was completely re-invented, to an amazing display of interactivity. I was both surprised and inspired.

    Excellent, as always! Great presentations. Fascinating to see how creative people have thought "out of the box" in using WordPress! :-) Loved all the featured sites/applications. Very unique, and useful at the same time! Great info from Suzette about the new upgrades in WP...can't wait for it to be rolled out! These incremental demos on changes are awesome!

    Had to "sample" this and rush out early, but a wonderful, welcoming event as usual!

  • Roy - thanks for letting me show it off! Teachers - please sign up, I forgot to mention that no extra fees are deducted, you get (almost) all of the tip someone sends you.. Stripe has some fees, but I'm not looking to make money off your hard work.. so join and help!

    Sure wish I could attend this! I will be in LA in October to attend Digital Hollywood. That isn't until Oct 20 - 23 but I'd love to stretch earlier to attend a SoCal WordPress. Making travel plans now. Do you have a date for October yet?
