April Hodge Silver, here. I’m new to Geek Gather, having lived in the Twin Cities for just 3 months and attended 2 Gathers so far. And now for some only slightly shameful self-promotion:
Just last month, my first (and possibly only? Time will tell) book was published by Packt Publishing. It’s called WordPress Complete 2.7+ and replaces an earlier version of the book from 2004. I rewrote this book from the ground up.
I thought the Geek Gather crowd might be interested in knowing about WP Complete, which covers a wide range of topics, from how to install and using the wp-admin all the way to the basics of writing themes and plugins. There also a whole chapter on using WP as a CMS for a regular non-blog website.
If anyone is interested in reading the book and writing a review on your blog or website, or for Amazon.com, let me know and I can get you a free copy.
