Blogging, Content Management and Beyond: Redefining the Limits of WordPress

  • Sep 29, 2014 · 6:45 PM

In step with WordPress’ steady growth and global adoption, we’ve all become familiar with its identity as *the* go-to blogging platform and CMS.

But that only scratches the surface of WordPress’ potential. This month’s meetup will focus on work using WordPress in clever and unexpected ways, exploring the platform’s ever-evolving scope and flexibility.

We’re joined by co-curators Athletics, a Brooklyn-based design studio and soon-to-be Nashville neighbors. Many thanks to WP Engine for their generous support of this month’s event.

    I just wanted to stop in before it slipped my mind and say that I found the format of multiple speakers for different topics to be really great - I hope there are more of these in the future.

      We'll round up all of the slides and make them available to everyone later this week or the beginning of the next.

    It was great meeting everyone last night. The Athletics team hopes to see you all soon.

    Special thanks to Randy Hicks and the entire WPNashville community, Kirk Slawek from Deavor and our fellow speakers Dale Liszka from Rockhouse Partners and Mark Kelnar from WP Engine.

    Hey everyone, the Athletics team is really excited to participate in our first WPNashville meetup. It's been a real pleasure working with Randy & co., and we look forward to bringing everyone together Monday.

    I feel we've got a great speaker lineup — though I'm admittedly biased when it comes to my partner Jameson :) — and look forward to all the presentations.

    At the moment it looks like we still have room for about 20 more, and we'd love to pack out the lovely Deavor space. It would be great if we could collectively kick up some dust across social. Anything to help spread the word would be fantastic!

    All the best, James
