Using WordPress as a foundation, you can quickly build a business directory featuring maps, ratings & reviews and other features you've seen on Yelp or Google Places. Best of all, this could be an opportunity to start a new venture. We'll take a look at about 6 of the many themes & plugins available to help you with this task and talk about things to look for and watch out for.
Who is this talk for?
End users, designers, consultants. This showcases some of the versatility of WordPress and how one might start a business with WordPress at it's core. It's not developer-y.
Jeff Rose in his own words
I am primarily a hobbyist programmer with big dreams. I fell in love with WordPress back in the early 2.x days and have focused on learning how to make it dance & sing since then. I have 3 plugins in the WordPress.org repo and 1 has over 20,000 downloads. I've done several client development projects and am working on way to many personal WordPress focused projects, as always.
