What I’d like to talk about at WordCamp Portland

In the spirit of being prepared, here are a few things I’d like to talk about at WordCamp Portland:

WordPress Multisite – In a nutshell, how it works and why it will make your life infinitely more manageable. If we have a group of people who quickly get their heads around the basics, I’d also love to share tips and tricks for pimping a multisite instance. For instance, using plugins like Restrict Multisite Plugins and customizing your admin bar to give easy access to the network admin for super admins. (People I should bump in to: Emma McCreary, Kayleen)

Test-driven Development – WordPress doesn’t do it, and I’m terrible at it. I should find a mentor with fountains of knowledge. (People I should bump in to: Michael Fields, Than Taintor, Toby McKes)

WordPress for Publishers – More and more newsrooms are using WordPress for all parts of their workflow. From experience, I know that journalists tend tolerate crappy technology. I’d love to hear from users about their current frustrations and pain points. (People I should bump into: Joe BoydstonToby McKes)

Dogfooding It – We love WordPress and sell to our clients, but a lot of us developers don’t actually use it on a regular basis. Why? How should we fix this? (People I should harass to no end: Nacin)

If you see me there on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, say hello! I look like this but with much shorter hair.
