  • Bootstrapping Your Venture

    by Joshua Strebel

    At 1:00pm to 1:30pm, Sunday 26th February

  • Playing Nice With Others: Integrating WordPress with Other Apps

    by Eric Mann

    Mark has a blog; and Facebook; and Twitter. He spends hours polishing stellar content on his site, only to find the best content discussions in his Twitter stream and on his Facebook wall instead of his site.
    Brooke gets a last minute request from a business client. They want a job application form to auto-populate their separate customer relationship management system.

    You’ve written a fantastic plugin, but your core users complain daily that they can’t use it from their iPhones.

    WordPress is ready to solve all three problems.

    WordPress is built to pull data from external services, to push data out to third-party systems, and to extend pluggable API gateways to other applications. If you’ve ever installed a Twitter widget, managed your comments from the iPhone/Android app, or just installed JetPack, then you’ve used all of these features.

    I’ll show you not just how they work, but how you can use them on your own site.

    At 1:30pm to 2:00pm, Sunday 26th February

  • Custom Post Types: Now What?

    by Cody

    By now a lot of us have heard about or used the amazing custom post type functionality within WordPress. But, after the code has settled from registering your very own custom post type, what do you do next?

    This session will focus on some of the intermediate to advanced practices and abilities to leverage custom post types to the max. You can literally build anything you can imagine with custom post type support through WordPress, and hopefully with some of the knowledge from this session, you will be armed with the tools to let your imagination and creativity run wild. So what are the topics in store?

    It will be a lot to cover in a thirty minute session so be ready! We will briefly go show and go over code examples during the slide presentation, however in an effort to conserve time during the keynote, we will be focusing on best practices and examples. There will be one-on-one availability, and supporting reference material after the session which will go more in depth into the code behind all this madness.
