  • Sarah Semark: Why I’m building a robot to steal my job

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Sarah Semark

    June 19, 2019 — How do you teach a computer to design a website?

    I’ve spent the last year trying to automate my own job. I’ll tell you why that’s not such a bad thing, and how to actually go about doing it.

    We’ll investigate how automation isn’t all that different from other technological leaps of the past—as well as ways in which it is vastly different. We’ll touch on how emerging technologies can be an equaliser and the real-world application of machine learning.

    Along the way, we’ll talk about ethics, universal basic income, and how soon Judgement Day will be upon us.

    Finally, we’ll touch on how Gutenberg opens up new possibilities within the WordPress space, and how to take advantage of those opportunities.

  • Rian Rietveld: Who’s afraid of ARIA?

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Rian Rietveld

    June 19, 2019 — WAI-ARIA means Accessible Rich Internet Applications. These are attributes you add to your HTML5 to (for example) inform blind visitors what is happening on your site.

    How do you use ARIA and why? And why is the first rule of ARIA: “Don’t use ARIA”?

    In this talk Rian will show you how to

    announce changes and error messages
    use the JavaScript function wp.a11y.speak()
    tell if a menu or accordion is closed or open
    give feedback on what’s happening on a one page website
    get the right documentation and examples

    Discover that ARIA isn’t that complicated and is very useful for those visitors that use your site in another way than you do.

  • Francesca Marano: Standalone Contributor Days: Help make WordPress with your community

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Francesca Marano

    June 19, 2019 — The Italian WordPress community was dormant for years, until a bunch of people got together at WCEU Contributor Day in Seville, in 2015, and decided it was time to revive it.

    After months of online chats in our Slack team, we organised an event that kick-started an avalanche of Meetups and WordCamps in Italy: a stand-alone Contributor Day.

    Four years later, Italy has more than 30 active Meetups, 6 cities with WordCamps in planning stages, and a great number of Contributors across the project.

    In this talk, I’ll go through the steps we took to organise it and I will also talk about Contributor Nights, special Meetup events where we concentrate on one of the Make teams and learn how to contribute from scratch.

  • Christian Nikkanen: Revamping a web service with a React single page app

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Christian Nikkanen

    June 19, 2019 — We built a React single page application for one of the largest Finnish technology magazines. It replaced their old traditional WordPress site at the end of 2018.

    The application has been in development for over a year now. It’s time to share our experiences building it, talk about why we built it, and how we built it. Because there were a lot of problems, I’ll talk about how we resolved them.

    To name a few: authenticating users to WordPress, social media previews, search engine visibility, integration testing, and last but not least, cache invalidation in all parts of the stack.

    Everyone in the audience should be able to grasp the main points, but developers will get most out of the talk.
