Rick is presenting: Getting WordPress to Speak Your Language and Introduction to WordPress

Why WordPress? Why do you like using WordPress? I work with WordPress because it’s really easy to use.  My clients get web sites that they can manage and update mostly on their own, and as a developer I get a framework that is easy to modify or extend with add-ons and plugins.
Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Ottawa? I’ve worked with WordPress for the past 5 years, and I want to see it continue to grow. Organizing this WordCamp and speaking too, provides an opportunity to give back to the WordPress community in a way that supports it and helps it thrive.
What is your talk going to be about? My talk on multilingual WordPress is intended to introduce users of all levels the concepts and resources needed to be able to set-up a WordPress site in one or more languages other than the default English.

The “Introduction to WordPress” is to help new WordPress users get a running start before all the sessions on Saturday.

What is your favourite WordPress plugin or theme? Why? As a developer I use a lot of different plugins, but few that I use most of the time are Gravity Forms, Google Analytics for WordPress, and TinyMCE Advanced. I’m also using a couple new ones for building multilingual sites on WordPress multisite – Multisite Language Switcher and WP Native Dashboard.
