June 29, 2016 — Mike Little is the co-founder of WordPress. After he responded to a post on Matt Mullenweg’s blog about forking their blogging tool in 2003, he paved the way for WordPress’ success today.
June 25, 2016 — In 2008, Kevin Kelly argued that creators (authors, musicians, artists, photographers, etc.) can make a living if they have “1,000 True Fans”. A creator blog is key to building such a community. In this fast-paced session, Todd will walk the audience through the critical WordPress-related pieces required to build and maintain a dedicated, engaged and responsive audience.

June 24, 2016 — Web application developers often can feel stuck in a rut when developing a new application. There are various basics that every app needs, user management, data entry, etc. WordPress solves all these challenges, and provides an extensible way to record, save and display data. With the introduction of the WP Rest API, WordPress has become an ever more desirable Web Application Platform.
At my full-time job we are in the process of converting our college website to WordPress, and we are building a way to distribute News and Events throughout our WordPress Multi-Site Network, as well as third-party systems. I’ll share the progress we’ve made thus far, as well as plans for future growth. I’ll also share why we decided to build this way, and how other apps could be developed similarly.
June 24, 2016 — This talk will go over how we approached building a plugin to add support for the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Project to WordPress sites.
AMP requires an alternate presentation of the WordPress site’s content to match its restrictive spec. During the talk, we’ll discuss the various WordPress and PHP APIs that the plugin relies on (rewrites, DOMDocument, etc.), some the design decisions we made, and the various challenges we encountered (and still do, in some cases).
The intended audience is primarily developers (all levels), but non-developers are welcome to attend as well.
June 24, 2016 — There are many ways of building web and mobile apps, but with built-in database handling, a decent view structure, a REST API, and a host of other features, WordPress is just as good – in some cases, better – than other frameworks out there. We’ll learn a few different methods of tackling building a web and mobile app with WordPress.
June 24, 2016 — A half hour of nonstop fun, showing how to build a complete membership powered website for $30 in just 30 minutes.
At the end, you’ll have:
– a WordPress powered website;
– restricted, membership only content;
– pay to download digital content;
– a payment gateway;
This one’s a lot of fun, I like to have a stopwatch running to see if I can get it all done in less than 30 minutes with plenty of time left for the inevitable questions.
June 24, 2016 — WP-CLI is a set of command line tools for managing your WordPress site. It allows you to perform many tasks much quicker than you would be able to by other means. In this session, I will teach you how to get WP-CLI running, and show some of my favourite time saving features. Once you’ve started using WP-CLI, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! This talk is appropriate for developers, designers and server administrators of all skill levels.
