Interview with Tom Carney

Tell us a bit about yourself and how you use WordPress:
I am from Philadelphia, PA. I love playing and watching sports (especially the local pro and college teams). I have been designing websites for over 10 years and have been using WordPress for 3 years. I use WordPress almost every day, I use WordPress multi-site to setup rough draft sites for my corporate and freelance clients. I enjoy developing custom themes and plugins to help me improve with WordPress.

What will you be speaking about?
I will be speaking about using jQuery with WordPress.

Who is your target audience? Who will get the most out of your presentation?
My target audience would be mostly designers who have and haven’t used jQuery within WordPress. Everybody who wanted to enhance their WordPress sites with jQuery will get a lot out of this presentation.

What do you hope the WordCampers will get out of your session?
I am hoping the designers and developers use jQuery properly in WordPress. jQuery can help resolve current design and development issues within WordPress and web design in general.
