    WordCamp US 2017Speaker: Sonja Leix

    December 10, 2017 — If there is passion for innovation, things get done. This is often true for the WordPress Open Source project and smaller projects within.

    The WCEU design team set a tall goal this year, beyond the usual design work for the event. We decided it was time to make creating and customizing a WordCamp site easy and intuitive, so we released a new WordCamp default theme for all. I’d like to share our goals, design consideration, and how we released the CampSite 2017 theme beta just before the event.

    December 7, 2017 — The ease of WordPress has catered to quick learners and do-it-yourselfers. It’s what makes WordPress so great and universal.

When is it better to hire someone else to develop my website? How can I prequalify a developer? Knowing the answers to these question can save you from a few headaches.

  • Russell Aaron: Your Theme Does Not Dictate Your Business

    Russell Aaron: Your Theme Does Not Dictate Your Business

    WordCamp Ann Arbor 2016Speaker: Russell Aaron

    November 3, 2016 — There is a difference between sales marketing and marketing a product because it’s based on a content management system. WordPress Theme Demonstrations are a primary example of what I’m talking about here.

    My first WordPress theme problem comes from the demonstration itself. Sure it looks pretty, but how is it built. Am I going to install 400 plugins to make the homepage work? Do I have to buy a plugin, that the developer built, in order to use the WordPress theme in the first place? Am I required to switch religions and claim a new faith in order to change church themes? These are real problems new WordPress users have.
