    Donna Botti: Managing Your WordPress Projects

    WordCamp Philadelphia 2018Speaker: Donna Botti

    December 5, 2018 — You may have started your business because you valued the freedom and independence, but do you find your time is not your own? Clients who don’t meet their deadlines; software, themes and plugins that change the way they work (or break) on their schedule not yours; and generally fighting the fire of the day mean you won’t be as successful as you want.

    In this talk learn some tips to make your WordPress design and development projects, and your business in general, run more smoothly so you can pursue what matters to you. The platforms, tools and processes you use and how you structure a project can make a difference. Regain your independence!

    guillegarcia,arkangel: Proyectos RAROS con WordPress

    Granada WordPress Meetup

    June 25, 2018 — Lo habitual cuando trabajamos con WordPress es construir sitios corporativos, blogs, e-commerce… Que no es poco. Pero, ¿qué más se puede hacer con WordPress?

    Guillermo García y Ángel Moreno (sí, en dueto, a ver cómo funciona la nueva fórmula, si se parece más a Pimpinela o a Faemino y Cansado) nos van a hablar de algunos proyectos con ciertas particularidades: backend para aplicaciones móviles “especiales”, plataformas con alta interacción de usuarios en el frontend, webapps usando React.js + WP, y quizá algo más.

    Entraremos en detalles técnicos, pero la idea es analizar algunos casos de uso poco frecuentes trabajando con nuestro CMS favorito como un verdadero framework de desarrollo, intentar analizar las ventajas que aporta frente a desarrollos desde 0 en proyectos con cierta complejidad.

    Al terminar la presentación podréis lanzar algunos tomates, o flores, al gusto de cada cual. Y además debatir un poco sobre el concepto “hacer hoyos con un martillo” 🙂

    Nota del organizador: Durante el evento podréis tomaros algo si queréis, pero además, y como viene siendo habitual, al final de la charla nos quedaremos a tomar unas cervezas o refrescos (tapas incluidas) en el mismo local. El que quiera puede unirse y así hacer algo de Networking o lo que “se tercie” :p

  • RA Dominic Baumüller: Fallstricke bei der Begründung, Durchführung und Beendigung von IT-Verträgen

    RA Dominic Baumüller: Fallstricke bei der Begründung, Durchführung und Beendigung von IT-Verträgen

    WordCamp Nuremberg 2016Speaker: Dominic Baumüller

    April 20, 2016 — IT-Projekte werden in ca. 70% der Fälle nicht beendet. Dies hat u.a. damit zu tun, dass die beteiligten Parteien den rechtlichen Rahmen entweder unterschätzen, oder gänzlich vergessen. Nach Bestätigung des Angebots wird einfach begonnen zu programmieren. Leistungs-/Pflichtenheft sind meistens nicht formuliert, der zeitliche Fahrplan falsch kalkuliert und über Change Requests macht man sich erst im Laufe des Projekts Gedanken. Das Going Live auf der einen und der Vergütungsanspruch auf der anderen Seite sind jeweils gefährdet. Die gute Idee bleibt meist nur eine solche. Dies muss nicht so sein. Der Vortrag soll uns Konfliktpotential aufzeigen und vor dem Scheitern eines IT-Projekts schützen.
