  • Joe Casabona: Keynote – Open Source and the WordPress Community

    Joe Casabona: Keynote – Open Source and the WordPress Community

    WordCamp Lehigh Valley 2016Speaker: Joe Casabona

    August 25, 2016 — How to Build a Table; How to Change a Car’s Oil; How Cook a Turkey; search for these and you will find countless of YouTube videos on each of these topics. People share their knowledge in hopes that it will be helpful to others. As a result, lots of people know how to build tables, change oil, and cook turkeys. But what if that information wasn’t shared? What if only one company made all of the tables and knew how to make tables? That’s kind of how software development is, unless that software is Open Source like WordPress.
