These are the slides from my "WordPress as a CMS" presentation at WordCamp Montreal 2010. WordPress can be a powerful content management system for businesses. Find out why! Business owners, freelance web designers and programmers in the audience found this presentation useful, especially with the tips and practical advice. If you didn't attend the event, it should still be helpful. If nothing else, enjoy the Star Wars, BSG, and other geek references! Enjoy!
