WP Multisite showcase – A talk by John Peden

WordPress as an enterprise-level CMS – WordPress shook off it’s image as a simple blogging tool some time ago. John was engaged on an 18-month long project with The British Council that pushed the use of WordPress as an enterprise-level CMS and included a super-advanced deployment and caching system you probably won’t have seen elsewhere.
