Oct. DFWWP: Special Guest, Scott Kingsley Clark, Exploring Pods: A CMS Framework

Scott will be presenting on how to use the Pods CMS Framework to easily develop new content types for WordPress. Using the dfwwp.org as an example and building it out ahead of time, he will then add a new section to the site live using Pods for people to see. He will also do a special encore performance of the song he played at WordCamp Dallas 2009 titled "WordPress as a CMS". "Pods is a CMS framework for WordPress. It's a plugin that sits on top of WordPress, allowing you to add and display your own content types. These content types, or "pods", are totally separate from Posts, Pages, or Custom Fields. The Pods plugin uses its own database structure for maximum efficiency, and for relationships among items."-from the Pods web site (pods.uproot.us) Scott is a Developer and Consultant in Irving, TX. Web developing since the age of 15, Scott has worked on hundreds of websites throughout the years. Scott specializes in WordPress, PHP, MySQL, AJAX, and mod_rewrite Development. Outside of work, Scott spends as much time as possible with his fiancee, Cassidy, and on his music project, Soft Charisma.

    Scott Clark is very knowledgeable about Pods and as a non-programmer, even I was able to get the main gist of what Pods are and some of the possible ways they can be used. I'm sure that people who are more technically inclined got even more from the presentation than I did.

    It was a good setup and presentation. It was very tech-heavy, which might have lost some of the non-savvy in the audience. But overall, I think everyone got the goal, which was to explain the quick and easy power of Pods.

    Scott (and Cassidy) did a great job showing us how easily Pods can add new structures to a WordPress web site. This was a bit technical, but just what many members needed to take their site to the next level.

    I was going to make new tables etc. for a plugin, but now I see that this works a lot better.

    Speaker was interesting. I enjoyed seeing the end result, which gave me a better understanding for what the coding was about.

    It was good, I think I'll be using Wordpress now because I was having trouble creating my own tables/pages etc. for a plugin i was making.
