Meet the WordCamp Omaha Speakers: Will Riley


Hi, I’m a full-stack developer and open tech evangelist. I’m a developer at the design company Grain & Mortar, and I’m Director of New Media at AIGA Nebraska, an organization focused on connecting designers.

I’m passionate about educating people on the direction tech has been, and is going, through good design.

Wearables, The Internet of Things, location-based services, mobile, and serendipitous social discovery: Those are my focuses among others, and tend to be grouped into the term “context.”

Session: WordPress for Web Developers

WordPress is a great framework, but other frameworks have great ideas inside of them. In this talk, we’ll take a comparative look at the tools and philosophies in WordPress, and compare these to other PHP, Ruby, and .NET frameworks and how we can take advantage of those inside of WordPress right now.

WordCamp Omaha 2015 is happening Oct. 10-11 at Metropolitan Community College’s Fort Omaha Campus. Get tickets today!
