We all know WordPress works great for personal blogs and affiliate marketers, but WordPress is being used more and more for company web sites. Whether it be agencies building sites for clients, companies selling digital goods, or university departments providing instructional content, many designers and developers at these organizations use WordPress as part of their day jobs. Our panelists will discuss their experience using WordPress in their Workplace:

Matt Bowman ? MLB Web Design
Stephanie Leary ? Texas A&M University
Cory Miller ? iThemes, WebDesign.com, PluginBuddy
Leia Scofield ? RD2
Moderator ? Randy Hoyt ? Imaginuity, University of Texas at Dallas

Send in your questions through the contact form or through Twitter using the hash tag #wpwork. We'll be discussing a wide range of topics, including the following:

  • Why WordPress?
  • Examples of business sites running WordPress
  • New features from WordPress 3.0 in action
  • Strategies for handling upgrades
  • Why not WordPress? (Common pitfalls and drawbacks)
  • Coding techniques and plugin recommendations
  • Themes: Modify existing themes or write your own?
  • GPL: Releasing WordPress themes and plugins
  • Does anyone really pay for WordPress plugins or themes?
  • Selling services around WordPress
