Come to the Cleveland WordPress Meet Up!

I have started a WordPress meet up group in the Cleveland Area! If you are interested at all anything WordPress related ( web development, blogging, etc… ) feel free to stop by our events that take place on the second Tuesday of every month. The location changes from month to month to give more opportunities to those who live in surrounding areas. For more information on specific events visit our MeetUp page at Cleveland WordPress Meetup.

I’ll be speaking at WordCamp Columbus on August 2nd


I will giving my “Using a Frameworks and Child Themes” talk at 3:30pm in the Lecture hall at WordCamp Columbus located in the CompuSuites building ( 5000 Arlington Centre Blvd, Bldg. 2 Upper Arlington, OH 43220 ).

Like the title of my talk implies I will be going over using Frameworks and Child Themes to build websites on WordPress. Over the past several years I had the unique opportunity to create a process for building websites using WordPress which lead me to develop a theme framework to rapidly deploy themes. If you can not attend the WordCamp I will make the slide available online, but you will miss out on me mumbling and fumbling my way through a presentation. 😉
