    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。

    Jaime Martínez: A modular approach to WordPress theme development

    WordCamp Antwerp 2018Speaker: Jaime Martínez

    March 30, 2018 — Bij Level Level hebben we te maken met websites die schaalbaar en flexibel moeten zijn. Tijdens het ontwikkelen van een maatwerkproject willen we een goede basis neerzetten, zodat wijzigingen eenvoudig doorgevoerd kunnen worden en uitbreidingen gebruik kunnen maken van de bestaande onderdelen. Door enkele richtlijnen aan te houden zorgen we ervoor dat we het technisch gezien bij omvangrijke projecten allemaal op een rijtje houden. Denk hierbij aan methodes zoals Object Georiënteerd Programmeren, BEM (CSS) en technieken zoals Twig templating (Clarkson). Dit allemaal zonder het contact met WordPress te verliezen.

    Ons doel is om websites op te leveren van hoge kwaliteit welke schaalbaar, stabiel en eenvoudig te onderhouden zijn. Dit resulteert in diverse projecten zoals Autotaalglas, Business Insider Nederland, ABN AMRO Financial Focus, Kansfonds of SOMO.

    De klant blij, wij blij.

    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.

    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. However, many questions come with the DYI approach: What should I look for when selecting a theme? How I find good plugins to extend my site’s functionality? 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.
