August 25, 2016 — How to Build a Table; How to Change a Car’s Oil; How Cook a Turkey; search for these and you will find countless of YouTube videos on each of these topics. People share their knowledge in hopes that it will be helpful to others. As a result, lots of people know how to build tables, change oil, and cook turkeys. But what if that information wasn’t shared? What if only one company made all of the tables and knew how to make tables? That’s kind of how software development is, unless that software is Open Source like WordPress.

June 30, 2016 — Unless you have ample money, you need good people skills to get your way in open source projects. (Honestly even with ample money). Get a glimpse at how Drupal 8’s multilingual initiative involved 1300+ people over 4.5 years under my leadership in dramatically improving multilingual features. So much so that: https://twitter.com/tkraftner/status/671267078616272896

May 30, 2016 — The basic idea of WordPress was to redefine online publishing by 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 everything being 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 what 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, by believing in the power of WordPress.
