Gregory is presenting: Getting Set-up with Hosting and WordPress
1) Why do you like using WordPress?
WordPress makes it easy to update my site. The wide range of plugins also allow me to integrate my other tools into a common look and feel for my clients.
2) Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Ottawa?
After volunteering at last year’s WordCamp, I wanted to do more to get involved this year.
3) What is the one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?
Working with the right hosting provider can make maintaining your site easy.
4) What is your favourite WordPress plugin or theme? Why?
W3 Total Cache. When combined with Amazon Cloudfront, my site loads so much faster!
