WordCamp Miami 2014 was held during the weekend of May 9-11 at the University of Miami in Coral Gables.
The first day was a choice between a WordPress Beginners WorkShop vs BuddyPress Workshop. I opted for the latter, since I wanted to learn more about BuddyPress. The presenters kept the event alive with useful tidbits. They provided a good overview of BuddyPress and bbPress. The slides are informative and fun.
The next day was divided into three tracks. I was picking sessions based more on content than on the track. For example, the session on “How to Create a Killer Video” session was very nicely presented. All in just 15 minutes. I was clamoring for more info on the videos topic.
There was another presentation that stood out for me. This one was about how to change the WordPress Admin panel for small business owners. It was all done through small coding tricks, no hacks. Just clean programming to change the capabilities of users via code. This would cut down on the overwhelming number of choices in the Dashboard, if you are not familiar with WordPress.
