I was asked to take over this topic this morning, and I will do my best to adhere to the following session description:
This session will go into depth on the ease of using WordPress as an all-purpose content management system. Especially from the standpoint of how developers can quickly turn out quality, administrable websites for their clients with just a few key plugins and a base install of WordPress.
