    May 12, 2016 — Return on investment is the end result that you want when it comes to your website. Whether it’s buyers, subscribers, commenters, social shares, or some type of engagement, you need to figure out the right formula. A lot of it begins with design and your use of calls to action. The color, the size, the text, the placement of it, as well as want you want it to do, are just part of the formula. I’m going to discuss what a call to action is, tips on creating a great call to action, and some cool resources to test them so you get the most out of it.

    Deena Mayne: Zen and the Art of WordPress

    WordCamp San Diego 2016Speaker: Deena Mayne

    May 11, 2016 — In our ever complicated world, what do we REALLY need on our websites? Sometimes there are so many options, so many FREE options, that we may be tempted to add them ALL! But, is their a price to pay for loading your site down with possibly too many features? Are you or your client’s websites better off with LESS stuff? (less plugins & software???) Do your special features, for example, sliders, fade in and outs, animations, attract or distract from your website’s purpose? Is your website easy to navigate? Do you automate tasks and security when possible? These are some of the areas we will discuss in “Zen and the Art of WordPress”.

    Mary Baum: Wanna End WordPress (design) To Your Will? Register Some Widget Areas!

    WordCamp San Diego 2016Speaker: Mary Baum

    May 11, 2016 — Are you tired of cranking out the same old header-content-footer web layouts we see? Wonder if a WP page even needs a header, or a footer? Wanna get seriously crazy with page layout in WP? I have two recommendations: 1. Make lots of thumbnail sketches. Then make some more. 2. Master the fine art of registering widget areas. If you can register a set of widget areas, and load them up with graphics, type and images, you can make a WP page look like ANYTHING. You can even make a phone screen look interesting!

    Evan Scheingross: Dude, Speed Up That Website!

    WordCamp San Diego 2016Speaker: Evan Scheingross

    May 11, 2016 — Having a fast WordPress site is probably more important than you think. The speed of your website affects nearly everything related to your online goals in some way – bounce rate, search ranking, conversion, page views, reader satisfaction, total revenue… I could go on but you get the point.

    Unfortunately WordPress performance optimization has become clouded in a bunch of technical speak that makes it difficult for many of us to know where to start.
    I too was once lost and intimidated when it came to this stuff, but I recently made the conscious decision to roll up my sleeves and learn what it takes to serve up websites with blazing speed.

    The result: faster websites, happy clients, and even happier end users. Everybody wins!

    And the very best part: It’s really not that hard to do.

    I’ve been creating websites for over 17 years, but I’m still no development wizard like the type you’ll find walking these halls at WordCamp San Diego.
    When it comes down to it, I’m just a dude with an interest in fast-loading WordPress sites who has spent a lot of time learning things the hard way. Through my efforts I’ve honed an easy and bulletproof technique that I want to share.

    In this talk we’re going to cover:

    Why performance is a major concern
    How to measure page speed / performance
    Why you need a good web host
    Server-side caching, browser caching, and recommended caching plugins/techniques
    Minification & Concatenation – What it is and how to do it
    Image optimization
    Content Delivery Networks – What they are and when you should use one
    How to bundle performance optimization as a service to earn more money on your next web project.
