Despite starting out as a blogging platform and currently existing primarily as a content management system, WordPress is powerful enough and flexible enough to run any type of web application. Whether you're a novice WordPress user or an experienced web developer you can leverage WordPress in many non-traditional ways.

In this webcast talk led by Brian Messenlehner you'll learn:

  • How to rapidly build scalable and secure applications
  • How to save time and money doing so

We'll also showcase some really cool applications and examples of building things with WordPress while thinking out of the box.
