  • Rodolfo Melogli: Let’s build (and sell) an online course

    WordCamp Europe 2022Speaker: Rodolfo Melogli

    June 27, 2022 — Online learning has gone through an incredible growth during the recent pandemic.

    Although installing and setting up a WooCommerce LMS plugin to sell courses is a breeze, creating the actual online course content is a complex operation.

    From brainstorming possible topics to defining modules and lessons, from writing the sales page to picking the correct price, from designing the “course brand” to choosing a customer persona, from recording lessons to editing videos, and finally from selling courses to managing students, there is a lot of work to be done.

    We’ll use worksheets to create your very own online course, so that you can start recording tomorrow and put it for sale in a month.

  • Leo Postovoit: The Real Impact of Having Website Performance as a Mindset

    WordCamp Europe 2022Speaker: Leo Postovoit

    June 27, 2022 — We all love to see sites that are fast, user-friendly, accessible, secure and reliable. But how do you get there?

    In this talk, we’ll share how we use the various aspects of “performance” to guide decisions from product ideation through actual software, and how we measure and tool for success.

    This is a mindset, not just a single metric: We care a lot about page speed, conversion and beyond, and in our opinion, “a better web” is a more performant web, which starts with a core practice is to love our customers (and our customers’ customers).

    We’ll share tactics you can take back to your team to argue for a better, more performant way to engage with your users.

  • Alain Schlesser: We need to do better (really!)

    WordCamp Europe 2022Speaker: Alain Schlesser

    June 24, 2022 — The Open Web, as impactful as it is for our society, is currently in danger and has been for while now.

    There is a constant pressure from walled gardens and app stores to monopolize on information, at the detriment of all but a few. Nothing new on that front, right? We all know by now how important the Open Web is and that we need to safeguard it, especially in the WordPress community.

    Yet here we are, still keeping on doing the things that hurt the Open Web, and supporting the platforms that endanger it.

    In this talk, we’ll look past the bare minimums of accessibility and performance to discuss how UX and monetization relate to each other, and how an healthy Open Web might need to look for alternative business models.
