    Richard Franklin: Collaboration is the key to success

    WordCamp Bristol 2019Speaker: Richard Franklin

    June 10, 2019 — As an Agency owner, I have learnt that Collaboration has been the key to our success. Sharing those experiences and ideas is providing other agencies / individuals with the chance to learn that by grasping the WordPress community ethos of sharing ideas and working with other companies is a Benefit NOT a issue. I will demonstrate that it can be a great way to:

    Learn
    Increase revenue
    Give back

    Everything has a pattern underneath. Designs can be broken down, distilled into patterns. When you think in patterns the process can be faster, easier. I’ll show you in this talk, that whatever you label it, the concept is powerful, natural. A fragmented approach to design goes perfectly with modern development and gives you a robust workflow for the future.

    Problem solving may not sound like the most rock and roll topic of conversation… and that might be so, but it’s at the core of everything we do, a skill so universal it transcends software, job role, even occupation.

    Mathieu Viet: With BuddyPress, WordPress Has The Power To Democratize Collaboration

    WordCamp Antwerp 2016Speaker: Mathieu Viet

    October 17, 2016 — I’m using WordPress and BuddyPress to help me achieve the intranet projects my company is making me work on for 6 years now.
    Although WordPress and BuddyPress are not necessarily solutions companies think of for their intranets, I have this conviction that considering a bit more some of their specific needs, my two favorite tools could help the hesitating ones to launch their collaborative or community intranets while making sure they keep the entire control over their data and knowledge.
    During this talk I will tell you how I gradually developed a set of specific plugins to meet my needs around community intranets. I will also try to show you that WordPress, with a little help from BuddyPress can help any company of any size in improving the way their staff collaborates.

    Sara Cannon: Pushing The Creative Limit

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Sara Cannon

    December 14, 2015 — As designers we’re searching for the best – the best method, the best look, the best font. We have a continuous battle to create brands that are unique but that have a longstanding presence. We make tough decisions constantly, question our instincts, and settle. We fight and we strive to make long lasting beautiful, smart and informed design. How do we get there?

    In this talk, seasoned Creative Director Sara Cannon is going to dive deep into the designers struggle. She’s going to share different processes that can make our work better. We’re going to discuss philosophy, methodology, and execution from the creative mind stand point. Hopefully by the end of the talk, you will be inspired to push your own creative limits and learned some tips on how to get there.

    Mel Choyce and Courtney OCallaghan: WordPress, Open Source, and Museums – A Look at the Tools and Processes of Moving Our Collections Online

    WordCamp US 2015Speakers: Mel Choyce, Courtney O’Callaghan

    December 12, 2015 — As one of the first museums to fully digitize its collections and make them available online for the public, the Freer and Sackler Galleries, Smithsonian has embraced open source tools to empower its audience and staff to discuss and experience art. We are counting to leverage this open attitude by working with a small group within Automattic to research, plan, and design the Freer and Sackler site. As a team, we are developing custom plugins and code in-house that will be made available to the public and other cultural institutions on GitHub in hopes of furthering open source within the cultural environment.

    During the presentation, we will briefly discuss the democratization of art, review our planning and design process and how we are working to make sure the tools we develop are usable by others. We will finish with an open discussion on how cultural institutes can maximize their use of WordPress. While the case study will focus specifically on a visual arts museum, the lessons learned and tools used can be applied to any WordPress-driven website rollout.

  • Matt Johnson: How Can I Help? A Playbook for Collaboration in Big WordPress Projects

    Matt Johnson: How Can I Help? A Playbook for Collaboration in Big WordPress Projects

    WordCamp Los Angeles 2015Speaker: Matt Johnson

    October 9, 2015 — If you make WordPress sites for a living, you’ve probably worked with clients, and you’ve probably been through the occasional tough project. Collaborating with your clients and forming a true alliance with them is delicate art. But, this talk won’t focus on what seems to go wrong with these collaborations –– it will focus on how to get it right.

    We’ll compare assumptions that developers and clients often bring to a project, and look at how they are similar in some ways (e.g., the excitement of creating something new) and different in others (e.g. features that may strike clients as simple, but are actually difficult to build, and situations where developers assume a content management task will be easy for the clients, when it’s actually heinous).

    We’ll also talk about a comparative wish list of skills and attitudes developers and clients tend to wish the other had, and we’ll talk about the anatomy of an ideal collaboration and the sorts of shared ideas and exchanges that can happen at every phase of a typical web product cycle, especially the initial discovery phase, where we identify the known knowns, the known unknowns, and as many of the unknown unknowns as we can.
