April Updates

Happy April everyone! Hope you are having a chance to get out in the wonderful spring air . Here at OIT Design we prefer to stay inside, preferably underground, with the windows shut, basking in the flat glow of fluorescent panels- the better to update, redesign and maintain your campus WordPress sites!


WordCamp Raleigh 2017

WordCamp is an informal, community-organized event that focuses on everything WordPress. This year’s WordCamp Raleigh will he held April 22-23 at the College of Engineering on Centennial Campus. In addition to keynote speaker Chris Lema, this year’s conference will feature our own Brian DeConnick. Brian will reprise his wildly popular talk “Shortcake-Powered Design at NC State University”. Last we heard, it was up for several Tony Awards so act now to reserve your spot! All campus WordPress users are encouraged to attend, as this years conference features a diverse group of presenters on a wide variety of WordPress related issues. To purchase tickets and view the schedule of events and speakers, visit WordCamp Raleigh.

Jen’s Little Bundle of Important Information

In case you haven’t heard the news, Jen’s pregnant! She’s due May the 4th (Star Wars baby!), so there’s still some time, but planning has commenced for her absence. Right now the expectation is that she will be out off and on for several months and with that in mind it’s extra-important that you please remember to email oitdesign@ncsu.edu with your questions! Brian, Miles, David, and our other part-timers are on that account and will be available to answer your questions and concerns over the summer.


That’s all for this month, stay tuned for more updates and new client sites coming soon!
