  • Ryan King: Building a Community of Learners - Using Open-Source Software to Develop a Docent Training Hub

    Ryan King: Building a Community of Learners – Using Open-Source Software to Develop a Docent Training Hub

    WordCamp Baltimore 2016Speaker: Ryan King

    November 21, 2016 — Our goal: empower a diverse docent community to create their own training hub. Powered by open-source software and an ambitious docent corps, we wondered how to provide a space for docents to self-moderate and share responsibility while adhering to an institution’s guidelines and oversight? A demonstration of the site will provide fodder for discussing the planning, revision, and maintenance workflows that evolved. Modules developed include plugins for the docent library, museum exhibitions, training materials, and roster. Participants will receive links to the custom built software we have released as open source on GitHub. Discussion will focus on lessons learned and how other institutions can incorporate open-source tools for their own training needs.

  • Emanuel Blagonic: How WordPress Changed the Face of Croatian politics

    Emanuel Blagonic: How WordPress Changed the Face of Croatian politics

    WordCamp Belfast 2016Speaker: Emanuel Blagonic

    November 1, 2016 — The basic idea of WordPress was to redefine online publishing with allowing anyone to easily publish their articles. More than 10 years later, we used WordPress as an open source publishing platform to build a website for one of the largest cities in Croatia.

    I’ll tell you a story of how the city of Rijeka decided to go with open source software and how the people reacted to a fact that everything will be open sourced as well. One of the first large-scale “design in the open” projects in Croatia is defining standards for future web development. We’re discussing the web design process, sharing knowledge with the public and asking citizens to be a part of the redesign effort.

    By delivering designs, HTML and CSS, WordPress theme and documents like Content Strategy and Accessibility Guidelines – we’re redefining how the public website should look like. And with the help of WordPress, we’re promoting the power of publishing and transparency.

    Last but not least – I’ll tell you how the city of Rijeka helped us organise our first WordCamp Croatia in 2015 believing in the power of WordPress.

    October 29, 2016 — In kindergarten you were taught how to share. WordPress is built on the idea of sharing. It’s what makes our community strong and supportive. However, for many of us, this is our business, our livelihood, and so our opinion about the “proper use” of GPL sometimes taints how we code or interact with “the competition.” I’ll share some stories and thoughts that may challenge you point of view – in a good way.
