  • Steve Grunwell: Taking the Web Offline

    WordCamp Ann Arbor 2016Speaker: Steve Grunwell

    January 6, 2017 — The internet is an amazing tool for sharing information with users all over the world, but what happens when “online” isn’t a guarantee? This was the question posed after 10up built an web-based product catalog for one of the world’s leading water technology providers. With a sales team of hundreds, how could we be sure that the sales materials were always available to the sales team, regardless of internet connectivity?

    This session is a case-study on taking a web application offline, synchronizing JSON data and assets while maintaining a consistent user experience. Attendees will gain insight on the unique challenges of taking an app offline, as well as the technologies available and strategies for keeping data intact and the user experience seamless.

  • Taeke Reijenga: Autotaalglas – a Case Study

    WordCamp Nederland 2016Speaker: Taeke Reijenga

    October 28, 2016 — Autotaalglas.nl is a well known windshield repair company in the Netherlands. Over a period of a year we redesigned and redeveloped their website doubling their online conversion in the first 2 months after launch.

    In this talk I will use Autotaalglas.nl as a case study to illustrate the importance of good UI and UX for a succesfull website. Running WordPress as a CMS has many advantages but it is not automatically making your website a great website.
    How did we achieve a doubling of conversion and what are we doing to hold on to the conversion increase? Knowing that on average a car owner has a windshield chip or crack once every seven years you will understand that it doesn’t make a loyal customer.
    How to keep developing the platform and giving the client an advantage over their competitors? By the time WordCamp Netherlands takes place we are implementing a new feature that connects the website to the planning tool of every repair shop to show availability.
