Yuri Victor: Why The Washington Post Uses WordPress

Published

July 29, 2013

The Washington Post used a user-centered design philosophy to radically shift our development process to launch dozens of successful new blogs, platforms and tools in the past year. This philosophy is the reason why we use WordPress. This presentation explores the importance of empathy, brainstorming, rapid prototyping, testing and iterating and how to incorporate these methods to build better products, faster.

    Thank you Yuri. Thank you for your enthusiasm :-) I work for french magazines and has exactly the same experience 3 years ago. It was exactly the same problems and the same results. I am very glad that we have now such a good case study with WP !
