IMPORTANT NOTE: Many participants are listing their intended topic of interest on the registration page. But this registration page is not editable. So we've consolidated the topics from the registration page onto the list below.

Everything To Do With WORDPRESS - Regarded by some as the ultimate blogging platform, Wordpress is a tremendously empowering tool for non-technical web site owners, as well as more demanding corporate users. This session will exchange tips, insights and methods about this premier open-source content management tool. The skill level of the participants in this session will determine the level of detail and complexity to be exchanged - adaptable from novice to expert. Led by William Stratas of Planetcast.
  3. Inelegant SQL for your first year with databases - Sad but true, you needn't master set theory to make ample use of relational databases in your early software years. A thirty minute talk will offer cookbook formulae for getting what you need into and out of a database, without creating a monster you'll hate yourself for later.
