Free Teleclass from vAssistant

vAssistant Services, a provider of WordPress coaching, consulting and tutoring, is having a free teleclass on May 7th.

From vassistantservices.com

No matter where you are with your site/blog, you’ve probably got some questions.

This week, get them answered.

Whether you’re struggling with the concept of how to accomplish something on your site, or the actual “how to” to get it done, bring your questions to this call.

Sounds like it could be pretty interesting for anyone looking for some advice on how to push their WordPress blog to the next level. You can get more info and register for the call right here, and don’t forget to check back for when they start accepting questions to be sure you get any questions you might have submitted to be answered. It’s a great opportunity to get some free WordPress related advice you’d normally have to pay a pretty penny for.

As an added bonus, they’ve got a free ebook about WordPress you can download from the same page, and actually pretty good. A bit on the “beginner” side, but useful none-the-less.

BuddyPress Hits the 1.0 Mark

BuddyPress, the WordPress MU social networking platform, has finally released version 1.0.

From BuddyPress.org

I’m happy to announce that version 1.0 of BuddyPress is now available for download.

This release marks over a year of solid development, starting from the roots of the ChickSpeak project, all the way to the blossoming developer community I see interacting on this site everyday.

This is just the first step on a long road ahead. So much is possible now that we have a solid WordPress-based social framework to build upon.

BuddyPress includes features such as extended profiles, private messaging, friends lists, groups, activity streams, blog tracking, and a pile more.

If you’re looking to add some social media features or your WordPress MU installation, BuddyPress looks like an interesting way to do it.
