WordPress can be used to develop an intuitive, feature rich CMS, capable of integrating with a variety of communication tools, including email, text messaging and mobile devices, in addition to a website. I have used WordPress to help small and mid-sized organizations build their web presence. With every instance, the most critical part of the project is trying to figure out how to control and manage the content.

This was a quick presentation put together for WordCamp Kansas City, where I helped attendees make the connection between their content organization needs and how WordPress processes and presents content.
