Discover how the freedom and flexibility built into WordPress empowers relief teams working in war zones in Southeast Asia. We will explore the challenges faced and strategies used to create an application that tracks medical care and human rights abuses in the jungles of Burma. The power behind Custom Post Types and the Pods Framework enables doctors and relief workers to make critical data-driven decisions when treating 15,000 patients each year. Come see how you can use the same tools to power maps, charts, and interactive timelines in your own WordPress plugins and themes.
