On November 27th 2010 (a week from this Saturday), I've been asked to take part in a workshop called WPWorkshopLA. The workshop is run by Austin Passy of Frosty Web Designs, and organizer of WordCampLA, the annual WordPress convention that had over 300 WordPress developers attend this year. We are open to suggestions for topics - anything from "What is WordPress?" to "How do I create a custom plugin?" and everything in between. For anyone interested in learning about basic to intermediate level topics involving WordPress, this could be a great opportunity. Instead of paying myself or another developer their standard hourly rate, this will be 4-5 hours of group and even some on-on-one training for the ticket price of $65. Use the discount coupon MARTY for a 10% discount making the ticket price $58.50. Leave a comment here or email me with any questions or suggestions for topics.

Flash sites are invisible to iPhones and create difficulties for search engines. Unfortunately, until now, Flash templates have been the only realistic option available at an affordable level. Regardless of what was used for a
