This volume of #WordPressWednesday includes quite a few tutorials, some WordCamp announcements, other announcements around the community, and WooConf.
#WordPressWednesday is a series dedicated solely to the WordPress world. I gather around a dozen articles that are just enough to keep you up-to-date on some of the ongoings in the WordPress community. It doesn’t give you the kitchen sink, but during a busy week, hopefully this curated roundup will help.
