The campus web ecosystem is often very messy. You may have hundreds or even thousands of distinct web properties, and each one has its own history, its own personalities, and its own reasons why it’s special and has to be different.

This episode features WPCampus community members Brian DeConinck and Jen McFarland, and one of their clients, Leslie Dare. Leslie is the Director of Technology Services for the Division of Academic and Student Affairs (or DASA) at NC State University, and she spent 2015 and 2016 overcoming those hurdles and wrangling her unit into a centrally-managed WordPress multisite.

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.

New episodes of The WPCampus Podcast are released every month.

Brian DeConinck

Front-End Designer & Developer, NC State University@BrianDeConinckhttp://www.briandeconinck.com/
I build custom themes and plugins for NC State University's Office of Information Technology, and I help maintain campus WordPress environments and advise clients on content best practices. I'm always excited to talk about universal design, accessibility, usability, and designing with compassion and empathy. I host the WPCampus Podcast, where I get to talk about all those things and more!
