    Amit Wadhwa: What not to do with WordPress!

    WordCamp Belfast 2016Speaker: Amit Wadhwa

    November 2, 2016 — A lot of developers and WordPress experts tell people what to do with it and how awesome it is.

    As a WordPress user and developer for nearly 12 years, I think it is important for business owners and small agencies to understand the common traps of using such a user friendly system.

    So I am going to concentrate on highlighting areas that people need to be wary of in order to create great, effective and excellent value Wordpress websites.

  • Taeke Reijenga: Autotaalglas – a Case Study

    Taeke Reijenga: Autotaalglas – a Case Study

    WordCamp Nederland 2016Speaker: Taeke Reijenga

    October 28, 2016 — Autotaalglas.nl is a well known windshield repair company in the Netherlands. Over a period of a year we redesigned and redeveloped their website doubling their online conversion in the first 2 months after launch.

    In this talk I will use Autotaalglas.nl as a case study to illustrate the importance of good UI and UX for a succesfull website. Running WordPress as a CMS has many advantages but it is not automatically making your website a great website.
    How did we achieve a doubling of conversion and what are we doing to hold on to the conversion increase? Knowing that on average a car owner has a windshield chip or crack once every seven years you will understand that it doesn’t make a loyal customer.
    How to keep developing the platform and giving the client an advantage over their competitors? By the time WordCamp Netherlands takes place we are implementing a new feature that connects the website to the planning tool of every repair shop to show availability.

  • 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。

    今講演ではそういったustwoでの実体験や実践方法をご紹介したいと思います。UX、UXというけれど一体どういう事なんだろうという方に、少しでも考え、またできる事から取り組んでもらえるきっかけになればと思います。

  • 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.

    January 25, 2016 — Jak sprawić, aby to co publikujemy na stronach opartych na WordPressie było dostępne dla osób z niepełnosprawnościami, czy osób starszych.

    Opowiem pokrótce czym jest standard WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), jak go zaimplementować i jaki będzie miało to wpływ na dostępność strony.

    Czyli innymi słowy, jak sprawić aby niewidomi „zobaczyli” nasze strony czy blogi oparte na WordPressie.
