WordPress has a nifty little plugin that allows it to take on the role of community building and social networking and that tool is called BuddyPress. Today in the podcast we’ll talk to a developer, contributor, and user of BuddyPress and discuss the power and pitfalls that come with BuddyPress for HigherEd.
The WPCampus Podcast is a monthly show where members of the community come together to discuss relevant topics, unique ways that WordPress is being used in higher education, share tutorials and walkthroughs, and more. If you'd like to be a guest on the show, or have a topic you'd like us to discuss, please let us know.
I'm the Team Lead for our web design and support group (including the dynamically-awesome Brian DeConinck) in NC State's central IT unit. I do training, support, maintenance, billing, and occasionally get to do something fun with design and/or dev. I'm color commentary to "help" Brian with the WPCampus podcast.
