July 8, 2020 — When designing WordPress themes, one of the biggest challenges stems from a core component of WordPress itself: the ability for site owners to change, modify, and build new content themselves. After all, modern web content needs to be flexible and evolving, but not everyone is a developer who can build custom layouts to fit each use case.
As content and functionality become even more modular thanks to advances like the Gutenberg editor, theme designers will have to accommodate even more flexible ways of visualizing and presenting information. How do we anticipate and accommodate the needs of a constantly evolving website while providing visual solutions that are clean, thoughtful, and consistent?
In this talk, we’ll discuss the principles of Atomic Design, how to stop thinking of your content as “pages” and “posts” in favor of the concept of “building blocks”, and how to extend this mindset to utilize the potential of Gutenberg as it is now, and where it might be going in the future.
July 6, 2020 — So you want to be in control of your own destiny? You want to call the shots and be independent? So did I. And I am now-keyword ‘now.’

This 20-minute, maybe 15-minute talk to give ample time for questions, is designed to expose you to the real world of WordPress design, development and marketing. I wish I heard this talk when I embarked on my new endeavor. In 20 minutes, I am going to tell you everything you need to know and do to succeed in this line of work. How can I do that in 20 minutes, you ask? Simple. I’m going to give you keys. You find the doors and it’s up to you to unlock those doors.

June 21, 2020 — Every website should ideally be built so that whoever visits it, for whichever possible reason, is able to navigate through it: we can describe this idea as Universal Design.
Obviously, in practice, it’s impossible to build the perfect website for everyone, but, if we want to take steps towards this ideal, three concepts can guide our choices: accessibility, usability and inclusion. In this talk, Stefano will explore these concepts, discussing what they are, what makes them different from one another (despite their overlappings) and how we can use them together to build the best possible experience for most of our users.
June 18, 2020 — Great websites don’t just happen. Exceptional user experiences are part of a rich study of psychological principles that are more than pretty pictures. By mastering a few design concepts we can create UI patterns that make it easier for users to navigate pages, consume information, make purchases and interact with our online brand.
With the evolution of WordPress, design will play an increasingly important role as decisions move into the hands of users.
This talk will explore how the key laws of UX can be applied to every aspect of our site, plugin, app or store, providing designers, developers and product managers with a framework of terms to create well-designed interfaces for editors and end-users.
