WordPress CMS modifications
Making WordPress the ultimate CMS!

Archive for June 2008

It has been decided that the previous venue (Aston University) is not really suitable for WordCamp UK, and it has been officially announced today that the venue has been changed to The Studio in Birmingham, right in the heart of Birmingham City Centre.

This is a very positive move from the organisers, as I personally know this venue – and it is FANTASTIC! Details of how to book tickets for the event, to be held 19-20 July 2008, will be released shortly.

Google Summer of Code is a great way for Google to contribute back into the web development community. WordPress once again has been selected to be sponsored on a number of coding projects.



WordCamp UK organisation is going very well – it seems a venue has been decided on – Aston University in Birmingham.

For those that don’t know, WordCamp is a great opportunity for WordPress developers, designers and bloggers to get together and talk about their favourite subject… WordPress! It’s sure to be a ram packed couple of day, with presentations and developer break-out groups.

It is going to be held on Saturday/Sunday July 19-20th 2008 – see you there!
