    Elise Desaulniers: Influence is Not Only About Likes – How I Used WordPress to Change Laws And (maybe) Save Lives.

    WordCamp US 2016Speaker: Élise Desaulniers

    December 13, 2016 — In Quebec, animals used to be considered “things” by the Civil Code, with the same legal status as a toaster or chair. In discussing this aberration with friends, I suggested we build a website, gather signatures, and start a media campaign to build awareness around the issue. Using a free theme and the Participant Database plugin, we had a site running in a day. Within 24 hours, we’d made headlines in local media and gathered 10,000 signatures. 22 months and 50,000 signatures later, the law changed to recognize non-human animals as sentient beings with biological needs. In this lighning talk, I’ll tell the story of Animals are not objects and give tips on how to use WordPress and the influence we can have online not only to make friends and get likes, but also to make the world a better place.

    Bernard Prince: Gérer facilement un projet WordPress en entreprise

    WordCamp Montreal 2016Speaker: Bernard Prince

    December 2, 2016 — Créer un blogue ou un site de présentation d’entreprise est assez facile avec WordPress. Par contre, gérer une boutique en ligne avec des centaines d’items ou un site ayant de nombreux contenus devant régulièrement être mis à jour devient rapidement complexe. C’est d’autant plus évident en entreprise où peu de personnes connaissent bien le fonctionnement de WordPress. Je vous propose de présenter un cas où avec quelques plug-ins (je ne suis pas programmeur) et la bonne configuration, il devient facile et rapide de gérer efficacement des milliers d’éléments qui doivent être mis à jour régulièrement. Dans ce cas précis, la personne qui tient à jour les données n’a besoin d’aucune connaissance en WordPress. Je vous montrerai en même temps comment optimiser efficacement le référencement Web (SEO) dans un tel contexte.

    Beatrice Otto: Confessions of a blogophyte

    WordCamp Geneva 2016Speaker: Beatrice Otto

    November 25, 2016 — Among other marginal skills, I am quite good at inventing words, so I cooked up ‘blogophyte’ to describe a neophyte blogger. Among the thousands of dazzlingly competent web developers and other professionals, might it be helpful to hear the journey of a blogophyte piecing together the jigsaw of social media and web development tools to find creative expression through WordPress?

  • Federica De Stefani: Quali regole devi rispettare online?

    Federica De Stefani: Quali regole devi rispettare online?

    WordCamp Milano 2016Speaker: Federica De Stefani

    November 16, 2016 — Quando si parla di blog, generalmente, ci si occupa degli aspetti prettamente tecnici, quindi SEO, posizionamento sui motori di ricerca, ottimizzazione… ma non si prendono (quasi) mai in considerazione gli aspetti giuridici. Partendo dall’analisi di un blog e dei contenuti tratteremo di:
    – testi (cosa e come scrivere, diritto di cronaca)
    – immagini (utilizzabilità e copyright)
    – gestione dei commenti (risposte e cancellazione dei commenti “scomodi”)

    In linea generale tutti sappiamo perfettamente cosa si può e cosa non si può fare online, purtroppo, però, appena iniziamo a navigare online ci dimentichiamo anche le regole più scontate, con conseguenze piuttosto pesanti a livello giuridico (oltre che d’immagine nel caso di brand).
