    Anthony D Paul: Organizing Your First Website Usability Test

    WordCamp Boston 2016Speaker: Anthony D Paul

    August 14, 2016 — You’ve built a shiny, new WordPress site. You asked your grandma and your client if they like it and they both do. However, you’re lying awake at night wondering if you’re missing something—because you know you’re not the end user. You yearn for actionable feedback.

    In this talk, I’ll distill my background in usability research into a how-to framework for taking your site and conducting your first moderated usability test. I’ll cover what to look for, best practices in facilitation, tools on the cheap, and how to glean the most from a brief window of time.

    Stefan Fröhlich: Eigene Themes from Scratch

    WordCamp Berlin 2015Speaker: Stefan Fröhlich

    January 25, 2016 — Für viele Projekte braucht es lediglich einen Bruchteil der Funktionalität und des Codes sogenannter “Premium”-Themes oder Frameworks – denen dafür andere, wichtige Features oft fehlen. Um die Projektanforderungen und das gewünschte Design entsprechend umzusetzen, ist es dann deutlich sinnvoller, ein individuelles Theme zu entwickeln. Die Anwender erhalten so ein intuitives und übersichtliches System mit den Optionen, die sie wirklich brauchen. Und der Browser schlankeren Code ohne unnötigen Ballast.

  • David Aguilera: Cómo alcanzar el éxito: A/B Testing para WordPress

    David Aguilera: Cómo alcanzar el éxito: A/B Testing para WordPress

    WordCamp Barcelona 2015Speaker: David Aguilera

    November 28, 2015 — Todas las páginas web que existen en Internet tienen una razón de ser, un objetivo a satisfacer. El ejemplo más evidente es, quizás, el de una tienda electrónica, cuya principal finalidad es vender el mayor número de productos al mayor número de clientes posible. Otros ejemplos incluyen páginas de noticias, donde el objetivo puede ser conseguir que sus lectores se hagan con una suscripción de pago, o incluso un sencillo blog personal, donde el autor quiere, simplemente, aumentar su número de seguidores. El éxito de una página web se puede medir en función del número de usuarios que acaban cumpliendo el objetivo, es decir, comprando el producto que en ella se vende o completando el proceso de suscripción. En esta charla aprenderemos qué es A/B Testing y cómo puede ayudarnos a mejorar nuestro WordPress.

  • Erin Olmon: Usability And Accessability For Older Populations

    Erin Olmon: Usability And Accessability For Older Populations

    WordCamp Portland 2015Speaker: Erin Olmon

    November 21, 2015 — Accessibility is often thought of in terms of visual accessibility; however designing and developing for accessibility means considering auditory, cognitive, and motor abilities as well. As we age, our sight, hearing, motor, and cognitive abilities decline, meaning when an audience is comprised of a significant number of older individuals we must consider the full spectrum of accessibility when we design. Further, at this time, older individuals are much more likely to be less technically savvy, which introduces another set of usability and content needs. Erin will frame this topic within an experience of designing a website for a small non-profit club that contains a significant number of older and technically un-savvy individuals… as well as a significant number of younger technically savvy individuals.
