WordCamp Cape Town took place last month at the iconic V&A Waterfront with Table Mountain as the backdrop. 6 of the WooThemes team members were representing and engaging with WordPress & WooThemes users.
Below is a short 2 minute video of the day’s activities. WordCamp was slickly & professionally organised by Ashley Shaw of LightSpeed. Ashley also happens to be one of our most advanced Canvas theme users, check out his portfolio for some incredible mods!

This session will show you how easy it is to implement a public frontend, backend, and admin area for users, as well as a basic API and other advanced functions.
