WordCamp Montreal

August 28th both Ron and I will be speaking at WordCamp Montreal. I’ll be talking about enabling the network and domain mapping, while Ron will be digging deep into code and go over how you can write plugins with the network / multisite in mind. We’ll be driving up, as it’s the closest WordCamp to where we live and a “short” 7 or 8 hour drive. Added bonus is we’ll be bringing our daughter Sarah who is studying to be a graphic designer at the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design. So if you see us there, be sure to say hi and give her plenty of advice.

All in One Desk reference

I’m very pleased to announce that I will be co-authoring a book, called the WordPress All-In-One Desk reference with Lisa Sabin-Wilson, Cory Miller, Michael Torbert and Kevin Palmer. The book will be published by Wiley in early Spring 2011.

So far, I’ve written the first draft of all my assigned chapters, which are (naturally) all about multisite usage in WordPress. An overview of the entire network, if you will. It has been fun, informative, educational, and also one of the hardest and scariest things I have ever done. Yes, that includes speaking at WordCamps!

I’ve long been a huge fan of Lisa’s work, so this really is an honor to work alongside her. She’s been really great and gives awesome guidance for angsty writers like me. Adding my other co-authors just brings it right over the top into awesomeness.
