Edmund Dantes H.

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce the second 1-Day WordPress Workshop scheduled for January 30, 2010. I know most people are thinking about the Holidays and New Year's Eve (and not WordPress!), but mark your calendar and tell your friends and associates who are eager to learn and get started using WordPress in 2010 about this exciting event.

WordPress Wins 2009 Open Source CMS Award
How hot is WordPress at the moment? Smoking. WordPress has been awarded the Overall Best Open Source CMS Award in the 2009 Open Source CMS Awards. See the details here.

Hope to see you next year in 2010 at the 1-Day WordPress Workshop!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year - Best in 2010!
