April 2, 2015 — This session is designed to be a visual experience comparing two plugins for multilingual publishing with WordPress from an in-browser perspective. We’re going to do a short demo of the front-end and back-end of our sites, edit an existing post (including its translation) and add a featured image. From there we’re going to dig deeper, add plugins, customize the theme, add more content, connect already existing posts to already existing translations and so forth. Our focus will be highlighting different use cases for each of the solutions featured, as well as elaborating on different user types for whom one or the other plugin might be a favorable solution.
April 2, 2015 — There are many approaches to building websites, but when it comes time to managing multiple websites, the approach that utilizes the most reusable code makes it a lot easier.

In this talk, Brian will share his experience and tips in utilizing this approach.
