  • Joe A Simpson Jr. :90 Days: Finding Your Place in the WordPress Community

    Joe A Simpson Jr. :90 Days: Finding Your Place in the WordPress Community

    WordCamp Orange County 2018Speaker: Joe A Simpson Jr.

    June 11, 2018 — After years of general fatigue, a myriad of tests without an answer, a catheter was inserted through my hip eventually winding its way to my heart, discovering two blocked arteries. After successfully re-opening them, I set out on difficult cardio-rehabilitation to regain heart fitness. During the next three months (including a leave of absence from work), I set out to restore my physical, spiritual and emotional well being. This speech details a 3-month journey of rediscovery the things that nourish and nurture each of these three areas — a thirst for learning, unearthing my dormant creativity and all things WordPress.

    I set out to become more mindful of the things that bring me positive energy including truly engaging in the Community — 4 WordCamps, 16+ WordPress Meetups, and Events, designed a Wapuu, and a website build/brand to give back. From Castaic north to Palmdale (northernmost Los Angeles County), east to Riverside and all ports of call in-between (Pasadena, Whittier, Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles) learn what makes good clubs while finding a network of common minds and colorful characters and gain inspiration to start the WordPress Santa Clarita Valley Meetup, over 8,000 Miles later.

  • Ibon Azkoitia: Conseguir trabajo a la comunidad WordPress

    Ibon Azkoitia: Conseguir trabajo a la comunidad WordPress

    WordCamp Gran Canaria 2018Speaker: Ibon Azkoitia

    April 22, 2018 — Hasta ahora siempre se han dado charlas sobre “Cómo colaborar en la comunidad de WordPress”, pero nunca se ha hablado de qué podemos sacar nosotros de esta colaboración.

    En este taller cuento mi vida, tal cual. Una vida de alguien que no tenía ni idea de qué estudiar ni qué hacer con su vida. Alguien que ha ido vagando día a día probando diferentes cosas pero sin un objetivo claro, hasta que encuentra la comunidad de WordPress. Me gustaría mostrar como cualquiera, y sí, cualquiera, puede encontrar aquello que le gusta y trabajo sin importar a qué se dedique.

    Contarles, con un poco de humor, cómo he pasado de fracasar en la uni, ser mecánico, trabajar por las noches en una fábrica, etc. a tener un trabajo propio o incluso trabajar en una empresa referente del mundo de WordPress.

  • Eric Tracz: Create Your Own Community Blog And Empower Your Users

    Eric Tracz: Create Your Own Community Blog And Empower Your Users

    WordCamp Kuala Lumpur 2017Speaker: Eric Tracz

    January 9, 2018 — Creating great content that’s interesting to people on your WordPress blog can prove challenging at times. Asking for your community members’ opinions is awesome, and people love to share.
    Let your community not only share their thoughts in comments, but also empower them to create value for your blog. New content means new traffic, new traffic means new visitors and returning ones – all that cumulates to great growth.
    Creating a community blog where you still control the content does not have downsides.

    WordPress Community Interview SeriesSpeaker: Josh Pollock

    December 20, 2017 — I had a great time interviewing Josh. We have run across each other a few times since we first met at WCUS 2015.

    We talk about WCUS 2017 and his presentation which can be found at WordPress TV – https://wordpress.tv/2017/12/10/josh-pollock-five-attitudes-stopping-you-from-building-accessible-wordpress-websites/

    Josh has been spending time working with the Gutenberg Editor and creating plugins.

    We discuss the pros and cons of big WordCamps versus smaller WordCamps.

    He is a big proponent of the WordPress Community and always has time to help people.

    One thing that I neglected to tell Josh. This is the 70th interview that I have done since June of last year.

    Thanks Josh!

  • Sonja Leix: Designing for the Community

    Sonja Leix: Designing for the Community

    WordCamp US 2017Speaker: Sonja Leix

    December 10, 2017 — If there is passion for innovation, things get done. This is often true for the WordPress Open Source project and smaller projects within.

    The WCEU design team set a tall goal this year, beyond the usual design work for the event. We decided it was time to make creating and customizing a WordCamp site easy and intuitive, so we released a new WordCamp default theme for all. I’d like to share our goals, design consideration, and how we released the CampSite 2017 theme beta just before the event.
