June 2015 WordPress Meet-Up

The Important Bits for Content Creators.

The latest stats peg WordPress powering 23% of the web. But in his years of developing and managing WordPress sites Mike has discovered that there are many basic misunderstandings of what it is, how to properly use it, and how to keep it secure and up to date. Mike’s talk will focus on the real-world tasks every WordPress user should know.

Presented by Mike Dickson.  Mike has been programming for 17 years, and by far his favourite is websites. He loves everything about them, from the “boring” planning stages and framework design to the finessing of the layout to get it just right. He’s an entrepreneur at heart, running three businesses from home home in Ottawa.
