    Θάνος Λεοντάρης: Legalese (Νομικά για Αρχάριους)

    WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018Speaker: Θάνος Λεοντάρης

    March 22, 2019 — Διαπιστώνει, λόγω της ιδιότητας του ως δικηγόρου, και διότι ασχολείται κυρίως με την συμβουλευτική δικηγορία πως πολλές φορές επαγγελματίες με εμπειρία ετών «πέφτουν» σε παγίδες (που ενώ ως νομικός θεωρεί πως ήταν κάτι που μπορούσε να αποφευχθεί) που κοστίζουν σε έναν επαγγελματία/επιχείρηση. Ως εκ τούτου, θα εκθέσει τους συμμετέχοντες σε κάποια ζητήματα που χρειάζεται να λάβουν υπόψη κατά τη διάρκεια της δραστηριότητας τους με βιωματικό τρόπο. Δηλαδή, χρησιμοποιώντας παραδείγματα που έχουν τύχει στον ίδιο και μαθήματα που αποκόμισε από την εμπειρία του. Οι τομείς αυτοί είναι ζητήματα IP, soft GDPR και τέλος φορολογικά/διοικητικά ζητήματα αδειών κλπ. ώστε να κατανοήσουμε κάποιους κινδύνους που ελλοχεύουν σε συναλλαγές/δραστηριότητες.

    He finds, as a lawyer, since he is mainly involved in advisory counseling, that many times professionals with «years of experience» fall in traps ( while he thinks it was something that could be avoided), which cost a lot for a professional/company. Therefore, he will expose the participants to some issues that they need to take into account during their activity in an experiential manner. That is, using examples of what he has already experienced and the lessons he has learned from these. These areas are IP issues, soft GDPR, and tax / administrative licensing issues etc. in order for us to understand some risks in hiding in trading / activities.

  • Jeremie Bergeron: La puissance de WP en backend pour une Web App React

    Jeremie Bergeron: La puissance de WP en backend pour une Web App React

    WordCamp Montreal 2018Speaker: Jeremie Bergeron

    March 18, 2019 — Le but de la conférence est de vous proposer une facette de la puissance de WordPress en la jumelant avec une autre technologie tout aussi puissante: React.

    WordPress rend la création de modèles de données très simple et rapide via son tableau de bord avec des plugins tel que PODS, Custom Post Type UI ou encore des sites Web tels que generatewp, alors pourquoi ne pas en tirer profit et transformer votre site WordPress en API pour votre App React?

    Quels seraient les avantages d’un backend WordPress?

    Sign in/up déjà implémenté
    Mots de passe oubliés déjà implémenté
    Tableau de bord convivial déjà implémenté
    Backend très sécuritaire
    Création des modèles en un clin d’œil
    Le monde du Web est déjà très habitué au tableau de bord WordPress
    Le tableau de bord étant déjà fait, vous concentrez toute votre énergie sur l’app

    En bref, il s’agit d’une solution facile et simple pour une App React de petite et moyenne envergure basée sur une solution reconnue et conviviale.

    Alors? On s’y met?

    Carlos Alberto Sobrino: Optimización de imágenes para la web

    WordPress Meetup Pontevedra 2019Speaker: Carlos Alberto Sobrino

    March 18, 2019 — Tras una pequeña, y casi obligada, introducción en el que intentaremos
    sentar conceptos sobre las imágenes digitales, nos meteremos de lleno
    en intentar comprender el funcionamiento de los formatos más empleados en la web: JPEG y PNG.

    Conociendo cómo trabajan estos formatos y algunas de sus variaciones,
    mejoraremos nuestra capacidad para decidir qué formato nos conviene y
    qué opciones tocar para conseguir una mejor optimización.

    Veremos qué podemos modificar con un software de edición fotográfica,
    algunas aplicaciones para optimizar imágenes y, como no, algunos plugins para WordPress.

    Para ir terminando, pasaremos por encima de algunos formatos
    alternativos que nos propone Google.

    ¿Es viable emplear alguno de estos
    formatos?
