Peter King: How to get paid.

What’s the point of selling stuff on our sites? Peter King says it’s to get paid.

In his session, he took us through the best ways to do that – not just the nuts and bolts of shopping carts and payment gateways – but also a bit about branding and marketing, the ways we get folks into our shops in the first place.

Mary Baum: One Theme, Many Variations

Veteran creative director Mary Baum updated us on the state of web typography a year after she introduced the subject at WordCamp St. Louis 2011. Or, at least, the state of her web typography. Then she showed us how changing the type and colors – and a few other CSS properties – can completely change the look of a single WordPress theme. In this case, it was the Studiopress theme Agency 2.0.

Ryan Markel: Getting Started with WordPress

Ryan Markel is our local Automattician.

That’s right: he lives in St. Louis, but he works for WordPress!

Okay. He lives in Belleville, IL and works for Automattic, the company that produces WordPress. Close enough.

At any rate, he took a group of us who were new to the platform through the very basics, then offered himself and a few of his very best friends for the day, as resources for the day at the WordCamp Happiness bar.

Check his session out below!
