  • WordCamp Chicago – This weekend Cory, Chris and Brad will be traveling to the Windy City for WC Chicago. Chris and Cory will both be speaking.

  • Interview with Shopplugin.net – Cory got a change to talk to Jonathan Davis of the ecommerce plugin, Shopplugin.net, at WordCamp Raleigh. Watch the video for some news and teasers about some future collaborations…
  • Featured Site of the Week: We actually have 2 sites this week to share! First up is http://www.phatpixels.co.uk/ – Using the Builder Theme, Chris had to double-check the source code to make sure! Second site of the week is also using our Builder Theme and it is http://blog.robynpromo.com/
  • Tip of the Week: From official full-timer, Brad: Google Fonts. The new fonts hosted by Google for use on your website. You need to use the API code and it can be sort of a hassle to do it yourself. So Benjamin Bradley is working on a plugin that will make it easier to integrate Google Fonts with your website. It will be released through PluginBuddy.com

Matt and James were not on the show as they are both on vacation (not together – with their wives) and we wish both of them safe and fun travels!

Join us next week as always on http://ithemes.tv at 11:00am CST Tuesdays.

Chat, hear news, and make fun of Cory all in one show…
