I’ll be speaking at the CMS Expo this May 3rd – 5th (I speak the 4th and 5th). It’s in Evanston, IL, basically, Chicago.
I’ll be doing two sessions, one Tuesday, on Wednesday. One of them will be on advanced theme building. We’ll start with a mockup of a site we want to build (something modern and cool looking) and build it into a finished theme. The other will be “Tricking out WordPress”, where we will hop around some different techniques for doing cool things with WordPress. Probably stuff like advanced custom field usage, pulling in external content, and AJAX.
If you aren’t into the WordPress thing, remember this is a “CMS Expo” so WordPress isn’t the only kid on the block. There will be tracks for Drupal and Joomla as well, and all kinds of interesting stuff going on. For all three days it’s $779.00. Pretty pricey, so if you need to start greasing up your boss, you better get started now. You can register here.
Awesome! How I wish I was in USA right now. Will you be posting the videos after its done ?
wow yes that’s pricey! I’m to far away to attend anyway hehe so I will be waiting for your “Expo review” post :) Good luck!
That is really expensive, if the forum was in Portland it may be worth it, but come on, Chicago.
Will you be so kind as to post your talk?
start greasing up your boss?
Lol, imagine that I delayed my jury duty for the 4th of May.
I would love to attend, as I am in the Chicago area but that’s just a little too pricey for me. I would grease up my boss but I am my own boss so I would just be greasing up myself and that just gets messy :P. I guess I’ll just have to settle for WordCamp in June, $30 was a lot easier to swallow.
When is it going to be available on youtube?
Look forward to seeing you there Chris!
Chris hears I am far and there are many who can not attend in Chicago can not pass Streaming? to see what would be something amazing. I tell my if this is something that was not to be missed
Thanks Chris if the streaming avisame [email protected]
Dude, when are you coming to Los Angeles? Wish I could go man.
Chris, We’re really looking forward to having you present at CMS Expo! You’re amazingly talented.
Cost-wise, I know it’s tough swinging $779 for some folks. There are day-passes available too, for just $279 / day.
We’ve also got student discounts for 10% off.
I hope that helps. The big thing is, CMS Expo is to help folks not only learn some phenomenal new techniques, but also make great business and career connections. I hope you can make it! I think you’ll find, it’s well worth the investment.
Co-Host, CMS Expo

I’m sorry but I must disagree. $800 is just way too much for those of us struggling mightily to stay afloat in this lousy economic climate. I’m not a web design whiz and feel like I’m sprinting just to stay on top of all the stuff I need to learn to earn a meager existence…..so at this price point CMS Expo is NOT aimed at folks like myself, but folks who are more successful and probably need the info offered probably less.
OK, back to sprinting . . .
Sounds like a great conference! Do you know if there will be a video of your talks available online after?
$800 plus r&b! I don’t think so. My boss will want to grease me up first!
Cool. I second the motion on seeing some post-event video for those of us who can’t attend but benefit from your expertise.
Very niiiiiicee!, I wish you luck and lots of fun right there.
I hope in a future being there at those kinds of events.
Cool, I may do this for a one day deal since I already go to Chicago 3 days a week for school at Columbia College.
What day are you doing the “Tricking out WordPress” Chris? Or are you doing that both days?
Will you be posting your 2 days of teaching here AFTER the conference for all of us who can’t afford to go? Would be awesome and much appreciated!
