Slides from Amrita Fooster 2009

Last week I attended the Free and Open Source Conference at Amrita (Fooster). I also gave a presentation on Blogging Basics to some cool folks there and the presentation is embedded here. The presentation is a very basic course on starting and running a blog.

The event was awesome for the following reasons…
– I loved the hospitality of the people @ Amrita, thanks to all.
– I could reconnect with some of my friends.
– I learnt quite a lot of things from Anand, who also gave a presentation on Money making online.
– I was able to complete one milestone in the goals for this year. It was this year’s goal to take at least one presentation at a meet up.

Enjoy the presentation…

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.
