    Job Thomas: Purpose-Driven Websites – What On Earth Is Your Site Here For?

    WordCamp Cape Town 2015Speaker: Job Thomas

    February 15, 2016 — Workshop:
    Starting a website is easy with WordPress, but having a clear goal in mind is vital for determining design, structure and content. In this workshop we’ll first focus on setting clear goals, before we in the next step will translate that into a better website. We’ll look at different types of goals like personal blogging, sharing portfolio, revenue gain, community building, and so on. Together we’ll discuss what would be the best approach for each of those specific goals.

    This workshop is ideal for WordPress beginners who’ve never built a website or those who want to take their website to the next level.

  • Tom Auger: Scoping and Budgeting Projects with Usage Modeling

    Tom Auger: Scoping and Budgeting Projects with Usage Modeling

    WordCamp Toronto 2015Speaker: Tom Auger

    January 17, 2016 — In the field of Information Architecture (IA) and User Experience Design (UX), there is a practice known as Usage Modeling, which maps user scenarios and stories to business priorities. This technique has been traditionally employed in software development to help define the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for first candidate release.

    In this session, you will learn how the Usage Modeling process can be applied to your or your clients’ website and mobile projects to:

    – put the end-user first
    – prioritize features
    – scope out functionality you thought was important (but isn’t)
    – determine an appropriate budget for the project

    The format of this session is unique: part lecture, part hands-on simulation of an actual Usage Modeling Workshop in the boardroom so you can experience the methodology first-hand with a seasoned facilitator.

    If you are considering a large web project for yourself or your organisation, or if you often quote on web work for clients, then this session is not to be missed!
