  • Yordan Soares: ¡Hagamos WordPress! Cómo participar en los equipos de colaboración.

    Speaker: Yordan Soares

    November 19, 2020 — Quizás ya sepas que WordPress es el CMS más usado y, quizás, el más completo y mejor equipado para hacer sitios web. Pero algunas personas desconocen que es gracias a su comunidad, al trabajo voluntario constante de personas como tú y yo, que ha llegado al lugar en el que se encuentra hoy en día.

    En esta charla conocerás los distintos equipos de colaboración de la Comunidad WordPress y las diferentes maneras en las que puedes colaborar. Aprenderás en cuáles necesitas un nivel de experiencia o conocimientos para involucrarte y en cuáles no, cómo comunicarte con los miembros o líderes de los equipos, los beneficios de colaborar, etc.

  • Matthias Pfefferle: IndieWeb

    WordPress Meetup StuttgartSpeaker: Matthias Pfefferle

    November 9, 2020 — Fast jeder in der WordPress-Community ist Betreiber eines Blogs (oft schon von Berufswegen), warum finden wir auf den WordCamp Badges dann aber nur den Twitter-Handle?

    Klar, soziale Netzwerke bieten viele Vorteile im Gegensatz zu klassischen Webseiten. Schreibe ich einen Blogpost, erhalte ich kaum Resonanz, teile ich diesen Blogpost über Twitter, erhalte ich im Durchschnitt 5 Reaktionen. Soziale Netzwerke stellen aber auch ein Risiko dar. Netzwerke werden geschlossen, Regeln können sich ändern und man kann den Zugang zu ihnen verlieren. Warum sollten wir also nicht das Beste aus beiden Welten nutzen? Die Sicherheiten des eigenen Blogs und die Reichweite der sozialen Netze. Das IndieWeb ist eine Art “Web 2.0” Revival. Im Zentrum steht die eigene Webseite und Facebook, Twitter & Co. erweitern es um die soziale Komponente… und wer hätte gedacht, dass sich mit Pingbacks dezentrale Netzwerke bauen lassen?
