Jason Gill — WCSLC Speaker Profile

Jason GillJason is a veteran web developer with over 12 years of experience and is currently working with the Department of Veteran Affairs. Before he was introduced to WordPress by a co-worker, he was using Mephisto. “Mephisto was horrible, but it was much better than the blog I tried programming myself from the ground up.” Once he started working with WordPress, however he “never looked back.”

One of the projects Jason has worked on that he’s most proud of is Utah UPSTART which he developed the theme for as well as the bilingual functionality. When asked about his favorite part of WordPress, his response is “Plugins. Plugins. Plugins.”

At WordCamp SLC 2012, Jason will be talking about WordPress multisite. “Having implemented WordPress multisite at an enterprise level more than once, I know it can be daunting.” He hopes to share how easy it is to get started and the awesomeness of managing multiple WordPress powered-sites.

When not building WordPress-powered sites, Jason admits to staying up “way too late” playing Modern Warfare 3 on the XBox. Occasionally he ventures outside to stay up way too late longboarding. Jason would rather listen to rock than jazz.
