eCommerce Web Summit

WordPress Web Summit

It’s that time again, time to announce the next entry in our Web Summit Series.

This time, we are going to be doing a summit on WordPress.  Why WordPress you might ask?  Well simply put WordPress is the largest and fastest growing web application framework in existence. It’s measured to be running between 20-25% of the world’s websites.

We’ve lined up a great set of sessions from speakers Jason Rhodes, Benji Regan, Aaron Jorbin, and including WordPress Lead Developer: Andrew Nacin.  They will be covering best practices in WordPress development, plugins, themes, and take a look at the roadmap of where the project itself is going.

Go ahead and register yourself today to join us for the WordPress Web Summit on November 14th!
