Games Powered by WordPress

A session at WordCamp Melbourne

Saturday 26th February, 2011

11:35am to 12:15pm (EST)

We’ve gotten confirmation that Dan Milward will be “present” at our “band meeting” from across the Tasman. He’s going to be talking about WordPress and gaming!

Dan Milward is an Entrepreneur based in Wellington New Zealand. His company Instinct contributes to a number of non-profit and Open Source projects, most notably the world famous WordPress e-Commerce Plugin and DoubleHappy a WordPress powered social network for people to create online and mobile games.

Instinct have been contributing to the greater WordPress community for over 8 years. Other examples of their work include, a Campaign Monitor Plugin, Facebook Connect Plugin, a WordPress Wiki Plugin, TikiPress for selling Tickets online, a reservations Plugin, a Group Deals Plugin (like groupon), and they have funded numerous theme development competitions to help foster the WordPress eco system.

My presentation will take people through the back end of the doublehappy.co.nz website. I will show people how we are using the WordPress database to run an entire gaming website. My presentation will focus on the following points;

1) game creation
2) game play
3) corresponding custom post types
4) the social side of gaming
5) the future of browser based gaming in WP

Dan’s aim is to show people to what extreme WordPress can be pushed.
