  1. I’d love to see a presentation on CiviCRM. Also, one on tricks to either hide a lot of stuff in the back end or front end editors– something that would help low-literacy, newbies, etc. to edit WP more easily.

  2. I would like to see something basic about coding, especially in understanding what changes to make in wordpress and what changes to make in my server files. Thanks!

  3. I’d like to see some intermediate plugin development best practices with a real world demo…maybe adding things to admin side or something…

  4. Hope it’s not too late – It would be nice to have more documentation on how to use WordPress to develop applications. Important part of that for me would be customizing the WordPress dashboard the same way I can customize the front end. PikList may be able to fill this role, but I’d like to see an actual example of something we’re building together.
