    Matt Cromwell: Best Practices on Providing Free Support for your Plugin or Theme

    WordCamp Los Angeles 2018Speaker: Matt Cromwell

    December 12, 2018 — If you are a WordPress plugin or theme author, you probably have mixed feelings about the WordPress Support Forums. For many, they are a necessary evil of the WordPress product developer experience. While they are limited, the advantages they offer far outweigh the disadvantages when tackled well.

    I’ve been providing support on the WP.org support forums for over 5 years for a wide variety of plugins. I’ll share my experiences and provide insight and tools that will make you a believer both in free support and in the value the .org support forums can provide to you and your business.

    Attendees will gain a deeper knowledge of all the resources the WP.org Support Forums offer. They will also learn of new tools at their disposal to offer more effective technical support for their users on the .org forums.

    Hiroki Saiki: 明日からできる自作テーマ・受託プロジェクトのアクセシビリティ入門2018

    WordCamp Ogijima 2018Speaker: Hiroki Saiki

    July 16, 2018 — Despite the enforcement of the “Act for Eliminating Discrimination Against People with Disabilities,” the actual workflow of web development has not, unfortunately, implemented the requirements properly. People find difficulty in changing how they develop things, due to various reasons.
    In this session Hiroki will share the best-practices in team development and theme coding, so that the audience can see it’s not a special and difficult task to implement them.

    一昨年の障害者差別解消法の施行以後、Webアクセシビリティに関する情報を日々目にするようになりました。では、それがWeb制作の現場に反映されているかというと、残念ながらまだまだと言わざるを得ません。いろいろな要因はあるにせよ、どうやらWebアクセシビリティの導入には高い障壁があるようです。

    本セッションでは、WordPressの自作テーマ制作やプロジェクト進行のアクセシビリティ対応のポイントを挙げながら、参加者(=制作者)にとってアクセシビリティ対応が特別なことではなく、難しいことでもないと認知していただくとともに、まずは簡単に対応でき、日々の制作に活かせる情報をお伝えすることを目的とします。
