April 3, 2019 — One size doesn’t fit all! This hands-on discussion will address common misconceptions associated with programming while dyslexic. The surface will be scratched in distinguishing the varying features of dyslexia by providing a virtual experience. Additionally, strengths of dyslexic programmers will be exploited. Further, learn how you can be empowered to create Assistive Technologies (i.e., voice recognition, spell checking, data storage and visual modeling) that meet you wherever you are.
December 12, 2018 — Along with the advancement of science and technology, these breakthroughs have enhanced every aspect of computer science. Programming languages are just keeping coming so fast. A little too fast perhaps. Programming skills you acquired earlier will be obsolete if are not keeping yourself updated and will impact your occupation. This trends in keeping programming skills up to date in this very competitive world, we fellow programmers/developer or any technical people have suffered stress, anxiety and even depression. So There is a need of such kind of programming that will work for our Body and Mind and help to keep us strong in this battle of competitive programming fields. This talk will discuss inner engineering for our Body, Mind, and Soul.
May 5, 2018 — O objetivo deste “talk” é justamente reconhecer o valor educacional da ferramenta e de tudo que a envolve (documentação, tutoriais, suporte, etc) como sendo parte de uma grande comunidade E-learning. Sem dúvida, o WordPress tem contribuído muito na formação dos profissionais de TI nos dias atuais.
November 15, 2016 — As a philosopher, programming can become quite the Platonic experience. The process of architecting software reminds a lot of what Plato describes as maieutikê; the Socratic process of questioning that eventually leads to anamnesis. Clueless about what these concepts are? Then this talk is for you! I will explain why, as a programmer, understanding these philosophical concepts can be very beneficial in learning programming and building new software. I will give a basic overview of a few key epistemological principles in Plato’s thinking and will explain how they relate to programming. If you are a developer, attending this talk might inspire you to add some philosophy to your development resources. If you are not a developer, this talk could help you have a better understanding of what it is that a developer does all day!
October 28, 2016 — WordPress, JS, API, SPA, REST, JSON, Angular, React are the terms and abbreviations that are being mentioned and handled to try to explain that WordPress can be a platform as another.
April 25, 2016 — Tutti sanno che WordPress è pessimo, ma lo usiamo tutti, no? Questo talk esplora l’origine di questa patologia.
Si parlerà di codice datato, di sistemi di versioning obsoleti, di rilasci e bugfix, di sistema ibrido CMS/Framework, di programmazione orientata agli oggetti, REST API e di repository. Tutto questi aspetti possono essere ritrovati nelle credenze e nei miti che circondano spesso l’ambiente WordPress. Conoscere bene il funzionamento, del software in primis, della community che c’è dietro e della mission poi, è l’unico modo per comprendere a pieno la potenza del prodotto che usiamo nel nostro quotidiano. Se poi lo facciamo con ironia ci divertiamo tutti di più!
February 5, 2016 — As developer we can get excited about a new project idea and immediately we start coding and hacking to get a first alpha version ready. But in most cases our initial implementation idea is by far neither the best nor the fastest to implement. In this lightning talk I want to show you one example, where I exploit another plugin to accomplish my task and it saved me a lot of time.
January 25, 2016 — Writing multisite compatible themes and plugins will help you becoming a better developer and reducing the amount of support. In this session I will talk about the restrictions and possibilities, what to watch out for and what we can learn from the core code.
January 20, 2016 — WordPress Admins and Super Users may get to the point where they’d like to move to the next level of understanding and exploiting their WordPress systems – but talk of hooks, loops, and APIs is still gibberish that causes their eyes to glaze over.
This session will provide a gentle introduction to how dynamic websites function, learning to identify and begin breaking apart relevant programming languages, and investigate what and where WordPress’ moving parts are.
This presentation is suitable for anyone who 1. wants to start rolling up their sleeves and get their hands dirty; or 2. is curious and simply wants to understand how WordPress works behind the GUI scenes. Best practices and next steps will be outlined for further exploration.
Identify the source files of a WordPress installation.
View source files from the Dashboard.
Follow best practices (i.e. child themes) for editing source files.
Form a mental model of how database-driven web applications process and output content.
Understand the core functional elements of a WordPress installation (i.e. database and individual php files).
Understand the purpose and function of a WordPress theme and theme files and how themes interact with the WordPress core.
December 13, 2015 — When asked, 100% of the developers asked respond that they are lifelong learners. Yet, a life is short while projects are long.
We see ourselves struggle with the overwhelming amount of new concepts, technologies, languages, frameworks, and tools. In addition to that WordPress development can be an island and requires extra effort learning something new.
In this talk we will see how few qualities can help us better structure and navigate our learning efforts.
