Last month, the WordPress project released their latest and greatest version, version 3.0. While it’s true that 3.0 is just the number that comes after 2.9, 3.0 introduces a number of new features and new infrastructure, making it easier to power entire sites, or a network of sites, in addition to single blogs.
With a survey of user-facing features as well as some quick live coding demos, this session will be full of useful information for those just starting out with WordPress and WordPress gurus alike.
