WordPress-Powered Portfolios this Saturday

Published on

WordCamp Portland Speaker BadgeWow, time flies! I last wrote about WordCamp Portland back in June, and already the event is upon us. This coming Saturday, I’ll be closing the first day of the sold-out shindig at WebTrends with my presentation, WordPress-Powered Portfolios. (Don’t panic, they’re streaming it.)

My presentation won’t revolve around the visual design of portfolio sites for two important reasons:

  1. The principals of compelling interaction design are not exclusive to the WordPress platform.
  2. I’m still way too new at this to represent myself as any sort of authority on the art of portfolio design.

What you will learn is whether or not WordPress is the right platform for your online presence and, if so, the surprisingly simple snippets of PHP you’ll need to get there.

As excited as I am to present, I’m even more excited to see the other wonderful speakers, including WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg.

I was surprised and delighted to hear that the premier sponsor of the event is Microsoft. I acknowledge their generous support by drafting and publishing this post in their intuitive Windows Live Writer application.

See? WordPress brings people together.
