John Austin is a big fan of northern Nevada and appreciates the great things that the local WordPress users and Meetup attendees do.
I have a technology background but am NOT a programmer, I’m more a Saturday afternoon experimenter when it comes to WordPress. But, it’s amazing what one can do with it. I’ve solicited and received some good tips from the local WordPress community. I love the grass-roots “feel” of WordCamps and wanted to give a little toward the effort.
