Our goal with this year’s WordCamp Toronto is to provide a logical progression through a variety of important WordPress topics.
Presentations on Saturday, September 29th
Saturday is filled with back-to-back presentations covering all aspects of WordPress. If you’re interested in sitting down and taking notes, we’ve got you covered!
WordPress 101: WP Out-of-the-Box
New to WordPress? Launching your first website? Jumping into the uncharted waters of blogging? The WordPress 101 track is a crash course that will take you through the basics of WordPress.
This track will start off with an introduction to using WordPress. As the day progresses, attendees will learn more about installing WordPress on their own web hosts and optimizing their WordPress installation.
WordPress 102: Working with WordPress.org
You’re familiar with the basics. You have your own WordPress.org installation, your own domain name, and you’re feeling good about it all. But there’s that nagging feeling – how much do you really know about WordPress?
This track dives into making your WordPress installation more secure, supporting mobile devices, choosing the right plugins, and taking the right steps to prevent loss of data. We’ll also cover the most common use of WordPress: building a kick-butt publishing site. An ideal track for power bloggers!
WordPress 103: Beyond the Basics
You’re familiar with WordPress, you’ve got backups running, and your site is accessible on all kinds of devices. Great! But what else can you do with your website, and how can you tie WordPress into a broader online strategy?
WordPress can be used for so much more than just publishing articles. The WordPress 103 track looks at online marketing, SEO, e-commerce, supporting multiple languages, and the flexibility of user roles in WordPress.
