  • Miriam Schwab: Let’s make WordPress cutting-edge again to ensure its future for years to come

    WordCamp Europe 2020Speaker: Miriam Schwab

    June 18, 2020 — Miriam says that when she started with WordPress, it was a shiny, exciting product with endless functionality. But, as the years wore on, WordPress started to lose its lustre. The future of WordPress overall was in question.
    She believes we are now seeing the beginning of a WordPress renaissance. JavaScript, headless, and JAMstack are making developers excited once again. This is a very promising shift for our community since products can live or die by the enthusiasm (or lack thereof) of developers. In this talk, Miriam will discuss what this evolution means for WordPress the platform, and the steps we can take to support and encourage this momentum, and ensure the future of our favorite CMS for many years to come.

  • Robert Jacobi: “Invisible” CMS

    WordCamp Montreal 2019Speaker: Robert Jacobi

To be successful, it’s critical to understand that very few people care about the actual CMS, they need to see solutions; and developers need to provide more than just a custom template. The focus will be on re-imagining what you as a developer/integrator/agency are doing, integrating 3rd party technologies, and selling a solution.

  • Becky Taylor: Making a CMS for Humans

    WordCamp Bristol 2019Speaker: Becky Taylor

    June 6, 2019 — In my role as a UX consultant, I’m acutely aware of the impact the CMS will have on admin users.

    Most CMS users just don’t see content in the way that UXers, designers or developers do. We, as digital types, understand that a page isn’t necessarily a page but is instead made up of 5 different content types. We can mentally map the content from the information architecture, to the design and then to the set of fields and posts in the CMS. Clients really struggle with this concept.

    I’ll discuss some ways in which we can ensure our WordPress setup and UI makes our users feel empowered and enabled to create great content regularly.

  • Nikos Giannopoulos: WordPress, more than a CMS – Expand with REST

    WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018Speaker: Nikos Giannopoulos

    February 28, 2019 — H παρουσίαση του έχει ως στόχο την ανάδειξη της δυναμικής του WordPress για γρήγορο, εύκολο prototyping νέων υπηρεσιών καθώς και την συνύπαρξη του με άλλα συστήματα σε ασυνήθιστες συνθήκες. Πιο συγκεκριμένα, θα μας αναλύσει γιατί το WP REST api είναι πολύ σημαντικό και πως μπορούμε να το εκμεταλλευτούμε και γιατί το WordPress σαν μέρος μιας υπηρεσίας αποτελεί σημαντική προσθήκη. Θα μας μιλήσει ακόμη για τα μειονεκτήματα και τα πλεονεκτήματα της χρήσης του WordPress για την ανάπτυξη υπηρεσιών, αναφέροντάς μας ακόμη μερικά no label παραδείγματα χρήσης του WordPress σε μη συνηθισμένες εργασίες.

    His presentation aims to highlight the dynamics of WordPress for fast, easy prototyping of new services as well as coexistence with other systems in unusual conditions. More specifically, he will analyze why WP REST api is very important and how we can take advantage of it and why WordPress as part of a service is an important addition. He will also talk to us about the disadvantages and benefits of using WordPress to develop services, even mentioning some non-label examples of using WordPress in unusual tasks.

  • Jim Bowes and Jon Bird: When One Size Doesn’t Fit All – Leveraging A Secondary CMS

    WordCamp London 2018Speakers: Jim Bowes, Jon Bird

    January 4, 2019 — Content management systems (CMSs) arose in the early 2000s, revolutionising website design. The old-fashioned style, stale content and low compatibility with mobile devices have driven website creation into the future. Modern, interactive, consistent multi-device and multi-channel experiences are now necessities. To power these online experiences, large, enterprise-level companies once were limited to a single, proprietary CMS. Today, many organisations are starting to realise that there can be tangible benefits to having multiple, strategic CMSs, including faster time to market, ease of use, agility and the ability to experiment and customise quickly.

    Join Jon Bird, head of Enterprise Sales and Strategic partnerships for WP Engine, and Jim Bowes, CEO of Manifesto, as they dive into the recently commissioned research, which surveyed 300 enterprise-level IT and marketing decision-makers in the U.S. and U.K. and look at what this means in practice for agencies using WordPress.

  • Mark Wilkinson: WordPress is a CMS not a CMS

    WordCamp Bristol 2017Speaker: Mark Wilkinson

    October 12, 2018 — WordPress allows users to manage their content through the WordPress admin screens. This means users can add, edit and delete content and media and manage their sites without the need to ask developers for every change. WordPress is a content management system, but all too often it can end up becoming a content mismanagement system when editing and managing the site is just too difficult, This talk goes through some of the ways in which we build sites so they are easy to content manage, whilst allowing clients to edit pretty much all of their site. It will cover the different methods we use to make content management easy and some of the problems that we see with sites we have been asked to improve. Hopefully by the end of this talk attendees will come away with some practical examples on how to make content management with WordPress easier and quicker for users.
