  • Monica Solheim Slind and Magne Ilsaas: WordPress at scale within the Norwegian Government

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speakers: Monica Solheim Slind, Magne Ilsaas

    June 10, 2019 — The Norwegian Government Security and Service Organisation facilitates and runs over 75 WordPress sites on behalf of all the ministries, and have a long history with WordPress. It started out with themebuilder and a standard theme, but as the platform grew, it became nearly impossible to maintain and support due to all the possibilities and variations. The internal team spent most of their time supporting what was already there, and had little time for innovation and optimisations.

    Together with Dekode, they have now rebuilt the platform, and made their own modular custom theme, with a flexible but common design system in place. This allows them to spin up new, complex sites within days instead of weeks, freeing up both capacity and resources to further develop the platform, and to better serve their clients.

    The platform has been designed for scale from the start and all further development contributes to the platform as a whole.

    This talk will cover both sides of the story. From within G.S.S.O, and how it has changed the way they work with, and deliver WordPress. How a project like this is a partnership with a large dose of mutual trust. How a design and code system can save a lot of time and money. And last but not least, how this way of working is a lot more fun for everyone involved.

  • Hristo Pandjarov: WordPress Without Borders – Scaling for Growth

    WordCamp Miami 2017Speaker: Hristo Pandjarov

    May 16, 2017 — No matter what kind of website you have, people need to be able to find it, like it and then trust it before you can take any advantage of its existence. To achieve these three things you need to be on a constant watch out. Is your website live and accessible? Is it fast enough or visitors lose patience waiting for your page to open? In this talk, I will show you how to measure, optimize and prepare to scale resources to guarantee the availability and performance of your WordPress website.

  • Kristina Romero: Ready, Set… Engage! Using WordPress to Keep a Large Community Active

    WordCamp Baltimore 2016Speaker: Kristina Romero

    December 1, 2016 — WordPress is tremendous with scaling for a large audience, especially for online learning. However, unlike a typical classroom, engagement among a community is not a given. Let’s explore the tools and tactics you can use with WordPress to create an engaged community through strategic student interaction, gamification, challenges and content to keep visitors returning, growing and flourishing in your website. Not only will we explore the “how” with the plugins that achieve this, but also the “why;” strategies that actually work. Having worked with 500 members in WP Elevation (a large community member WordPress website) and over 100 members in RockStar Empires (a large community member WordPress website), I’ve quickly seen what it takes to avoid the sound of “crickets” and inspire a passionate community.
