The Secret To 20% Of The Top 10 Million Websites.

Wordpress powers almost 20% of the top 10 million websites (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WordPress). Many of these sites function as blogs or news sites, but are they all? We'll take a look at how to use Wordpress as an effective CMS, customized to your client. For many websites, Wordpress is a perfect fit with rapid development times and an easy to use backend for managing content.

We'll also take a look at the workflow of an advanced Wordpress developer, using tools such as Git for version control, Grunt and Node.JS to automate tasks, and some of the essential Wordpress plugins that speed up development.

Tools you will learn about that you may not know (Grunt and Node.js)

    Thanks for presenting Kalen! It was an informative presentation which will help people to get set up to efficiently develop wordpress sites. I will definitely use some of the tips described in your talk. Thanks again!

      Thanks Jovette, glad you liked the presentation. I hope some of the tools help you out. Let me know if you have questions setting them up or using them. It takes some work getting each one set up, but really, the less you do by hand each time, the more time you save.

    Unfortunately, I had to leave early so I didn't get to sit through the entire presentation.
