    Crispin Read: Object Oriented User Experience

    WordCamp Manchester 2016Speaker: Crispin Read

    March 15, 2017 — Fitting user focussed design methodologies into a development process needn’t be difficult. Our objectives as UX practitioners, as designers, as developers, as product owners etc are the same – to build the best possible thing in the time we have and within budget. The difficulties that surround projects are often much more to do with communication and process than they are about the differences between the disciplines. As well as adding weight and dimension to UX discovery, thinking about what we are building as separate and connected objects, and particularly the exercise that I share in this session, can be really helpful in building a foundation for better communication and collaboration across team, discipline and organisation(s).

    Wordcamp Omaha 2016Speaker: Rob Ruiz

    March 5, 2017 — Too often, UX is only considered on the front-end of a WordPress site design. Although that is very important, too many WP Designers/Developers stop there.

Using Custom Post Types, the WPDB API and some creative coding, we can make WordPress sites easier for ANY business and/or experience level of user to update and add content specific to their business. After all, content is king, so let’s encourages admins to add more!

    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.

  • 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

    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。
