We’re proud to announce one of our first headline speakers at WordCamp 2014 – Boone Gorges. Boone is an independent software developer and consultant, specializing in WordPress plugins. He is a Lead Developer for BuddyPress, and oversees development on such projects as Commons In A Box, Anthologize, and Participad. Boone is a former academic, and most of his clients are universities and other non-profit institutions. In his spare time, he is a competitive crossword solver, a jazz pianist, and an afficianado of pizza and barbecue. He lives in New York City with his wife and son, and blogs at Teleogistic.
Boone will be presenting on “Across The Social Continuum: Three Surprising Sites Powered by BuddyPress”. For those who haven’t used it, BuddyPress is a plugin that allows you to easily build a social community within your WordPress website. Boone is renowned for being an amazing presenter, and for those of us who saw him in October at the WordPress Stamford Meetup, we can all attest to that.
