    WordCamp Denmark 2016Speaker: James Bonham

    August 2, 2016 — React is becoming a popular choice of JS framework for building interactive features into custom WordPress themes. But why is this? And what exactly is it good for?

    I’ll also give an introduction to how React works, show a little code and tell you a little about my journey into the realms of amongst other things npm, webpack, linting and flux.

  • Nakamura Mayu: Organic Lean UX

    Nakamura Mayu: Organic Lean UX

    WordCamp Kansai 2016Speaker: Nakamura Mayu

    July 29, 2016 — UXという言葉、もう馴染みのあるものになりましたか?まだ取っ付きにくいでしょうか。もしくはうんざりしているでしょうか。本は読んだけどどう仕事に活かしていいかわからない、やってみたけどあまり会社の体制に合わない・・・そんな風に思っている方もいらっしゃるかもしれません。

    Ustwoに入ってから私も試行錯誤の繰り返しでした。初めは学校で習った本に書かれている内容をそのまま実践しようとして実社会の現実とのギャップに悩み、何度もトライ&エラーを繰り返しました。そんな中Lean UXという言葉に出会って学んでいくうちに、大事なのはプロセスとルール(「やり方」)がチームをコントロールをする事ではなく、プロセスのエッセンスを学ぶ事でそれがチームの自然なDNA(「在り方」)として馴染んで行く事なのだと実感しました。

  • Caspar Hübinger: “Caring is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen anyone do.”—Thoughts on WordPress Plugin UI

    Caspar Hübinger: “Caring is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen anyone do.”—Thoughts on WordPress Plugin UI

    WordCamp Europe 2016Speaker: Caspar Hübinger

    July 1, 2016 — This presentation aims to give you a fresh perspective at WordPress plugin UI and ways to improve it. WordPress plugins often fail to provide elementary guidance and comprehensive communication via UI, thus causing unnecessary support requests and bad karma not only for their makers, but for the WordPress user experience in general. In this talk we take a close look at human reactions and emotions related to plugins and their presence in “WP Admin”, as well as good practices plugin developers can rely upon in order to create a comfortable and more “human” experience for the people using their products.

  • Ross Wintle: User Experience – it’s for everyone

    Ross Wintle: User Experience – it’s for everyone

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Ross Wintle

    May 28, 2016 — Not sure what user experience (UX) is? (Neither am I). Or whether it matters to you? (It TOTALLY does!) Or why it’s important? (Let’s find out!). I’m not a UX expert, but I don’t think you have to be: we should all be thinking about how people interact with the things that we make. Let’s take a really (really!) simple web app, tear it apart, and realise that UX is hard, very important, and definitely worth thinking about. Expect tips, links, resources, door handles, cars, small children, and possibly a little WordPress.
