  • Using WordPress to create social change

    WordCamp Edinburgh 2017Speaker: Bridget Hamilton

    April 7, 2019 — The Verbal Remedy website has WordPress at its heart. With up to 50 blog post submissions per month on everything from feminism to sexual health, we need a theme that gives our words the impact they deserve and a dashboard that means we can create posts effectively as a remote editorial team.

    As Verbal Remedy’s founder I’ve watched the platform grow over the past four years from a tiny Tumblr site to a fully integrated WordPress creation with a strong presence in the North East of England. I’d love to be able to share what I’ve learnt along the way.

    I’ll talk about:
    – Why we chose WordPress for our website
    – How starting a blog can create social change
    – How to handle tough issues when blogging
    – How your blog can create a buzz offline, too

  • John Eckman: The Future of WordPress (and Your Role in it)

    WordCamp Ann Arbor 2015Speaker: John Eckman

    January 19, 2019 — What does the future hold for WordPress, as a platform and as a community?

    Will we see continued growth, from ~24% of the web to 50%? Will the REST API enable a whole new generation of powerful interfaces to content stored and managed by WordPress? Will Skynet become self-aware as a side effect of the introduction of Emoji? Will the customizer lead to a totalitarian state? Will we all join hands and sing “I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony”?

    Through the lens of various 19th, 20th, and 21st century utopias and dystopias, we’ll look at what the future has in store for WordPress, and what you can do to make it happen (or stop it).
