January 22, 2017 — Jayman’s Lightning talk, will move on explaining what experience and how the empathy is to the core to have a good User Experience. To support his statements, he will walk through with 3 examples
December 21, 2016 — This talk is about the importance of end-to-end testing, and not treating UX as something separate from programming. Promoting the idea that UX problems are fundamentally engineering issues, not design flaws that can be fixed later. This is aimed at a technical audience (plugin devs, designers, site implementors) but is not highly technical – includes examples of UI and error handling failures in general and from WP sites.
November 13, 2016 — Maybe you have heard of user experience (UX) but don’t know much about it? Or you want to better the experience your visitors have at site, but don’t know where to begin?
UX professionals from the Ladies that UX Durham group will do a 15-minute overview of UX then hold a panel to field your questions and ensure you walk out with practical ideas of how to use UX practices to improve your WordPress site.
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.
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.
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。
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.
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.
