LoopConf 2017

Salt Lake City

For those of you who don’t know, LoopConf is a WordCamp-like conference aimed at WordPress developers.

La Aventura Del Amor

We knew that it was going to be awesome, but had no idea how much progress they have made in their efforts in Uganda.

Not only are they a huge success story, but they continue to expand their business and grow as human beings.

Introducing…”Social Me”

I gave another demo of the Social me plugin this evening at the Orange County WordPress meetup. It went over well, so I think it's ready enough to get it in your hands. (don't forget to follow Jeffrey's tips on backing up WordPress before installing it). Hopefully getting it out in the wild a little bit will encourage other developers to get involved.
