  • Franz Vitulli: Non solo Slack - Comunicazione Interna per Aziende Distribuite

    Franz Vitulli: Non solo Slack – Comunicazione Interna per Aziende Distribuite

    WordCamp Milano 2016Speaker: Franz Vitulli

    November 21, 2016 — Nei primi anni novanta, l’economista britannica Frances Cairncross osservò la diffusione di Internet e ne predisse il ruolo decisivo nella cancellazione delle distanze. Ma all’atto pratico, in un ambiente lavorativo distribuito come quello di Human Made, come facciamo in modo che la lontananza non abbia un impatto negativo nel nostro regolare flusso di lavoro?

    In questo talk illustrerò come interagiamo internamente a Human Made. Strumenti, meccanismi e strategie, senza perdere di vista ciò che conta davvero: chiarezza nelle informazioni, efficacia nelle comunicazioni e rispetto reciproco. Con un occhio di riguardo alle sfide con cui un’azienda che lavora in remoto deve fare i conti quotidianamente: diverse culture, diversi stili di vita, diversi fusi orari.

    Questo talk è per tutti coloro che lavorano in remoto e vorrebbero comunicare più efficacemente, e per chiunque voglia imparare a possedere i mezzi di comunicazione anziché esserne posseduti.

  • Franz Vitulli: Slack and Beyond - Internal Communication for Distributed Companies

    Franz Vitulli: Slack and Beyond – Internal Communication for Distributed Companies

    WordCamp Nederland 2016Speaker: Franz Vitulli

    November 11, 2016 — “Distance will die,” the British economist Frances Cairncross predicted while observing the spread of the Internet in the 1990s. At Human Made, which is a distributed and location agnostic WordPress agency, we are defeating distance on a daily basis by using several tools and adapting them to our own needs.

    In this session I’ll explain how we communicate internally at Human Made, and share how you can implement the same strategies to communicate effectively with the rest of your team—while reducing issues related to different time zones, cultures and lifestyle.

    This talk is for every remote team who need to improve their internal communication to maximise productivity, and for everyone who want to own their communication tools and apps rather than being owned by them.

  • Mel Choyce and Courtney OCallaghan: WordPress, Open Source, and Museums - A Look at the Tools and Processes of Moving Our Collections Online

    Mel Choyce and Courtney OCallaghan: WordPress, Open Source, and Museums – A Look at the Tools and Processes of Moving Our Collections Online

    WordCamp US 2015Speakers: Mel Choyce, Courtney O’Callaghan

    December 12, 2015 — As one of the first museums to fully digitize its collections and make them available online for the public, the Freer and Sackler Galleries, Smithsonian has embraced open source tools to empower its audience and staff to discuss and experience art. We are counting to leverage this open attitude by working with a small group within Automattic to research, plan, and design the Freer and Sackler site. As a team, we are developing custom plugins and code in-house that will be made available to the public and other cultural institutions on GitHub in hopes of furthering open source within the cultural environment.

    During the presentation, we will briefly discuss the democratization of art, review our planning and design process and how we are working to make sure the tools we develop are usable by others. We will finish with an open discussion on how cultural institutes can maximize their use of WordPress. While the case study will focus specifically on a visual arts museum, the lessons learned and tools used can be applied to any WordPress-driven website rollout.
