  • Giulia Tosato: Programmazione: femminile, singolare

    WordCamp Catania 2019Speaker: Giulia Tosato

    November 18, 2019 — Oggi la programmazione è un mestiere maschile: non c’è dubbio che le donne siano una netta minoranza in questo settore.
    Pochi sanno che non è sempre stato così: anzi, sono state soprattutto le donne a fare la storia della programmazione – ed è una storia che tutti dovremmo conoscere.

    Che cos’è successo poi, perché oggi sono così poche le sviluppatrici?
    Qualcosa sta cambiando?
    E cosa possiamo fare tutti noi per rendere più accessibile ed inclusivo questo settore?

  • Jeannette Washington M.Ed: Programming While Dyslexic

    WordCamp Detroit 2018Speaker: Jeannette Washington M.Ed.

    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.

  • Sushil GC: Programming For Body And Mind

    WordCamp Pokhara 2018Speaker: Sushil GC

    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.

  • Omar Reiss: Why Every Programmer Should Read Plato (“or why Socrates had a great talent for programming.”)

    WordCamp Milano 2016Speaker: Omar Reiss

    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!

  • Eugenio Petullà: WordPress sucks!

    WordCamp Torino 2016Speaker: Eugenio Petullà

    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!

  • Hans-Helge Bürger: Lightning Talk – Think B4 U Code

    WordCamp Berlin 2015Speaker: Hans-Helge Bürger

    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.

  • Jessica Gardner: WordPress Development for Non-Developers – An Introductory Tour Under the Hood

    WordCamp Toronto 2015Speaker: Jessica Gardner

    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.

    Learning Outcomes:

    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.
