WordPress 3.6 is currently in beta, with the final version right around the corner. As with every new release of WordPress there is a lot of new and exciting features for both users and developers, which we will go over in a live demo.
Flagship features include:

New Menu management user-interface and of course, a new theme: Twenty Thirteen! Presenter: Eric Andrew Lewis (http://ericandrewlewis.com/)

We've all seen the content recommendation boxes at the end of articles on blogs, main stream news sources, and everywhere in between. This session will cover what types of content are being recommended, how these recommendations generate revenue, and what you can do to see more of the content you want (and less of what you don't).
