I use WordPress as a platform for developing blogs, corporate and nonprofit websites, eCommerce sites (with WooCommerce), and just about anything else that needs to be updated frequently. I'm interested in learning about ways to optimize and secure WordPress, best practices when developing themes, creating WordPress plugins, and how other people are using this CMS in awesome, creative ways.
I roll my own themes, but I sometimes use Reverie (as a Foundation-based platform for developing responsive HTML5/CSS3 themes) or Genesis (an old standby). Plugins: WooCommerce and the Soliloquy slider.
Working on two client sites right now that will be done by August 2014. Check them out then :-) : http://www.excellencefordetroit.org/ http://www.developingkids.org/
More than a few times -- once on a date (bad idea).
