August 3, 2017 — With the new Plugin Directory being based on WordPress comes the ability to use its REST API to access its data. In this session we’ll be going over the various modules and libraries available that make it fairly straight forward to get started on a front-end React client for your site. We’ll discuss a possible NPM module setup and Grunt workflow, as well as how React components for the Plugin Directory are structured, before looking at how it all comes together. And finally we’ll take a look at how the Directory is using React today!

May 13, 2017 — Konstantin Obenland tells WordCamp KC 2017 attendees what to expect from the WordPress platform in 2017.
March 31, 2017 — Come one, come all! Grab a cup of coffee and join Automatticians Konstantin Obenland and Michael Cain for a morning show-style WordCamp talk that’s buckets o’fun for anyone and everyone. We’ll break the session into three segments: news from around the WordPress world; a special guest interview with a WordPress “celebrity”; and a “shop talk” segment about a design or development topic that we’re hoping to learn more about by pretending to be experts in front of you, our audience.
There will be laughter (hopefully?), there will be tears (regrettably?), there will even be some awkward silences (definitely). But most importantly, there will be plenty of that whole-grained, balanced-diet WordPress that you just can’t get enough of.
November 1, 2016 — The WordPress.org platform is the project’s secret sauce of success. It powers the plugin and theme directories, hosts all WordPress versions, is home to the developer tools needed to create WordPress, and protects millions of WordPress sites with automatic updates. In this session I will shine a little light on a largely unknown part of WordPress, explain the impact it has, and answer all questions about it.
September 8, 2016 — Automattic’s prominente Rolle im WordPress Universum ruft unterschiedlichste Reaktionen hervor. Teilweise undurchsichtige Beziehungen und Entscheidungen die nicht immer für jeden nachvollziehbar sind gehören dabei zu den negativeren Dingen die in der breiteren Community wahrgenommen werden. Diese Session erörtert den Zusammenhang verschiedener Teile des Projekts, geht den Ursprüngen nach, und behandelt die Philosophie hinter Automattic’s Engagement in der Community.
August 2, 2016 — Cain & Obenland in the Morning! is a morning talk show-style WordCamp session aimed to kick-off WordCamps with interesting, current, and informative WordPress topics… and a little bit of lighthearted fun.
Our sessions are broken into three parts: The WordPress Not-Nightly News (news and current events from around the community); a special guest interview (a Q&A introduction to a bigger name attendee/speaker – what do you do?/how’d you get started?/etc.); a current, introductory-intermediate design or development topic (i.e. internationalization, security best practices, theming, etc.).
June 30, 2016 — The Plugin Directory is the backbone of the success of WordPress. It provides tens of thousands of possibilities to expand your WordPress site and add the most unusual features. It has been doing its job for almost ten years without difficulties or major failures. But it’s time for an overhaul. In this session Konstantin explores new features, a shiny new design, and provides a unique look behind the scenes of a brand new Plugin Directory, ready to take on the next decade of WordPress growth.
June 7, 2016 — Shiny Updates is an effort to make the user experience around managing plugins and themes smoother and more pleasant. It has also shown to be a feature that is subject to all the challenges that software projects face around the world, and as such makes for a great case study to review the current approach to WordPress Core development.
