August 2, 2016 — This one’s for everybody! In this talk, we’ll cover the organizational and technical benefits of running a multi-network, multi-site WordPress as the primary CMS at Boston University. We’ll highlight specific strategies, including organizational policies, development workflows, and team structure that allow us to serve over a million users per month. We’re here to help dispel the notion that a centralized approach to WordPress can’t successfully be implemented in Higher Ed.
June 5, 2016 — Why switching to WordPress Coding Standards will make you a better developer by Dave Green
WordPress Coding Standards have been around for a while, yet many developers don’t write code with them, let alone know they exist. This was the case with me until September 2015 when I made the switch, and now I wish I’d dived in earlier! In this talk I’ll explain what they are, how they will help you write better, cleaner and more secure PHP code and why you should be using them for all WordPress projects.

Be a better developer with code review by Philip John
Code review may sound boring – as developers we want to *write* code, not read someone else’s. But if there’s one thing we must do as developers it’s continually learn, and code review is one of the best ways to do that. This talk will help you improve as a developer by talking about code review, what it is, and how it can improve the security, scalability and readability of your code.

WordPress JSON API とプラグイン固有の API について紹介しながら、WordPress に限界がないことをお見せしたいと思います。夢を見て、そして作りましょう！
I’m not the best developer. I’m not the best designer. But with WordPress, I, and you, can be anything. WordPress enabled me in less than 3 days to build a fully operational SaaS and solve a problem that pained many. With the introduction of the WordPress JSON API and plugin-specific APIs, there is no limit to what WordPress is capable of. You need only dream, and build it.

September 18, 2015 — WordPress now powers nearly 25% of the web, but the vast majority of those websites use WordPress as a CMS. In our transition from a plugin to a hosted platform with OptinMonster, we decided to use WordPress as our application platform. This talk gives a practical overview of how we use WordPress as the application backend and the obstacles we had to overcome to make it scale to serve 10s of millions of API requests every day.
August 3, 2015 — I recently replaced a proprietary SaaS CMS for the largest school district in the state (Newark, NJ). We launched our 70+ schools sites on Aug 29, 2014 on top of WordPress. Our district site is 30,000 pages and 300,000+ media assets. In the end, we cut our annual web site management budget in half and have beautiful new web sites powered by WordPress that ease the pain points our content owners, administrators and technology coordinators have when managing their school websites. This presentation covers how this was achieved using WordPress, how it has solved many of the problems we were facing with our vendor-controlled proprietary system, and how we have embraced the concept of WordPress as an Application Framework, allowing us to create all kinds of sites, applications, and mobile apps directly from WordPress.

June 15, 2015 — Avec l’émergence des modèles Cloud et plus particulièrement celui du modèle SAAS (software as a services) les modes de production
ont évolué permettant à l’utilisateur client de ne payer uniquement ce qu’il a consommé.
WordPress n’étant plus exclusivement utilisé pour la création et la gestion de contenus de
sites internet (on retrouve sur le marché des solutions d’Outil de ticketing, de gestion Immobilière, Panel de gestion de serveurs par exemple), les professionnels du numériques doivent pivoter pour certaines de leurs offres vers ce standard SAAS.
Nous verrons au travers de cet atelier ce qui signifie « osez le saas » pour une agence, une ssi ou un développeur freelance utilisant WordPress.
Nous effectuerons un tour d’horizon des outils disponibles sur le marché permettant de pivoter vers ce schéma de production.
Puis nous verrons comment concevoir son offre, son infrastructure serveur et ainsi comment gérer sa production autours de notre produit Mill.
