Shawn Hesketh

Shawn has filled a gaping hole in the WP tutorial world. That is, tutorials for folks who’ve never used WP before and wouldn’t know a post from a page, or category from a tag.

The tutorials at WP101.com are well structured, thorough and at a good steady pace.

Designer/developers can now direct their clients to Shawn’s WP101 site and let his excellent tutorials teach them how to use WP.

For us designer/devs who suck at training – it’s a godsend!

Shawn’s a legend and should be knighted for services to the WP community!

Mariano Amartino

Mariano has run the first WordCamp outside San Francisco almost 3 years ago, bringing Matt to Argentina… and he is helping people on at least 3 countries in Latinamerica to run their own WordCamps without even asking to be mentioned.

Mariano hizo el primer WordCamp fuera de San Francisco hace 3 años y trajo a Matt Mullenweg a Argentina (ya 2 veces) y ahora está ayudando a otros 3 países de la región a armar sus propios Wordcamps sin siquiera pedir ser mencionado y eso vale resaltarlo.
