    Corey Maass: Build a Web App MVP with Little or No Code

    WordCamp Belfast 2018Speaker: Corey Maass

    April 23, 2019 — WordPress is known to be a powerful and versatile tool for rapid proof-of-concept web app development.

    During this WordCamp presentation, we will investigate why WordPress may be the best tool to help create your next web app. We will look at different examples of business cases where WordPress is the best option, and also where it falls short. I will illustrate how I have solved the most common UI patterns required by web apps using plugins, web resources and occasionally code.

    We will walk through one of the apps I’ve built from idea to development to production to see the patterns in action. Finally, I share other considerations from my experience like deployment, syncing dev environments, AJAX, the REST API and iterating on feedback.

    After the presentation, the audience will have a better understanding of WordPress for web app development. They will be ready to build a minimum viable product (MVP) web app on top of WordPress even if they have limited coding experience.

    Corey Maass: Stuck in a Rut – How I Overcame Six Months Without Progress

    WordCamp Belfast 2018Speaker: Corey Maass

    April 17, 2019 — In January 2017, I set 5 big business goals for the year. By May, I accomplished 3 of them… And then everything ground to a halt.

    I didn’t move forward for six months as I battled depression, doubt, jealousy, imposter syndrome, shiny object syndrome, not-invented-here syndrome, and so much more.

    You’ll hear about how I was finally able to identify what was stopping me, move past it, and what I’ve done to prevent a lot of this ever happening again. I hope you can learn from my mistakes!

    Corey Maass: One Year Of Running WordPress Premium Plugin Business

    WordCamp Nashville 2016Speaker: Corey Maass

    March 16, 2017 — At the time of WordCamp Us, it will be almost exactly one year since the first public release of Kanban for WordPress. I’ll speak about my experience, reflecting on:

    * Going it alone as a developer, marketer, entrepreneur
    * The “WordPress-y” way extending beyond code logic to development, business, and community
    * Freemium with add-ons as a business model, and the alternatives
    * Service like Freemius or EDD to manage sales and updates vs coding your own
    * Maintaining and testing so much code
    * Marketing a WordPress plugin
    * Everyone disagreeing, strongly, with your pricing
    * Supporting users, sometimes customers, who range from awful to amazing

    …And lots more!
