Growing WordPress in the Federal Government:

WordPress struggles to get a foothold in DC, especially within the federal sector. This talk will take a look at why WordPress is treated like a second class CMS, what we can do change that, and what we are doing to help grow use WordPress in the federal government.

In particular, we will talk about“Sites”). Sites is a shared service provided by the General Services Administration to help agencies focus on creating great content rather than on building systems to deliver that content. Sites provides agencies with a content management tool that is up-to-date, supports open content, is secure, compliant and hosted. Sites has been created to help government agencies meet the goals of the Digital Strategy: to enable the American people to access high-quality digital government information and services anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Sites is currently available for free for agencies. In this session, you will learn about this offering and how your agency can take advantage of this platform and its new US Web Design Standards theme.
