WordPress is the most widely used Content Management System because it's easy to use, easy to customize and it's free! What a lot of people don't realize is how powerful WordPress can be with the right tools. This talk will show you how powerful WordPress can be with minimal knowledge of how to design or develop websites. We'll cover the themes and plugins you need to know about and hopefully do some things you didn't think WordPress could do.
This talk is for everyone whether you are using WordPress already or not. Users, non-users and developers alike should all walk away having learned something new.
