Hey hey! Calling all New Jersey WordPress nerds! The New Jersey WordPress meetup group (organized by a few familiar faces) is hosting the indomitable Brad Williams for a presentation on WordPress Multisite.
The presentation itself will be a basic introduction to WordPress Multisite, including showing how to set-up and use Multisite and going over some of the benefits of using WordPress Multisite. The event will be taking place at Cowerks, a rad coworking space in Ashbury Park.
In case you have somehow stumbled across this blog without any prior knowledge of Brad Williams (or WDS): Brad is our CEO, as well as one of the authors of Professional WordPress. He has an extensive background in WordPress and web development; if you have questions about WordPress or about entrepreneurial endeavors, this is a rare opportunity to catch him and ask him questions in person!
Brad’s the right guy to ask! After all, our team has created some amazing work using WordPress Multisite, like:
In addition to design and development, we created a multisite network that allows them to tailor regional specific content for their audience.
We developed HobNob Local’s network of sites that help local businesses reach local residents, encourage residents to support their local economy, and strengthen the community they live in. The local community sites also allow residents to learn about the going ons in their community real time from their mobile devices.
We’re especially proud to say we got to work with the largest school district in New Jersey! WDS migrated over seventy sites from a proprietary CMS into WordPress. Now the Newark Public School District calendar can post events to all of the schools, and each school in the district is a part of their multisite network.
Technical.ly is an awesome organization that you may be familiar with; they were responsible for making the incredible Philly Tech Week take place! By getting them set up on WordPress Multisite, they are now better equipped to support and enhance local technology communities through news, events, and services.
Brad’s presentation on WordPress Multisite is on Thursday, April 30th, 2015, 7 PM – 9 PM! Cowerks is located at 619 Lake Ave, 3rd Floor, Asbury Park, NJ. Join and RSVP right here (or heck, DON’T RSVP and show up anyway!), go meet yourself some fellow WP-heads, and learn something new!
