November 21 - 22, 2013

If WordPress is your business, either as a developer, power-user or marketing pro, you’ll learn advanced techniques over this weekend that will give you a competitive edge. You’ll learn insider techniques for managing sites both for yourself and clients, customising your admin screens, e-commerce, event management, building membership sites, the power of child themes, and how to pick the perfect production and marketing tools.
