    WordPress Meetup CesenaSpeaker: Leonardo Pinori

    October 17, 2022 — Con questo talk vorrei presentare i vantaggi nell’utilizzo dei tools opensource Roots (Bedrock+Sage) per la realizzazione di un tema WordPress totalmente personalizzato.

    – repository git ben organizzate grazie all’utilizzo di composer per la gestione delle dipendenze
    – struttura del progetto orientata a processi di CI/CD
    – facilità di aggiornamento e rollback dei plugin e del core WordPress

  • Michelle Schulp: Rethinking Themes – Embracing Atomic Design With Gutenberg

    WordCamp Denver 2020Speaker: Michelle Schulp

    July 8, 2020 — When designing WordPress themes, one of the biggest challenges stems from a core component of WordPress itself: the ability for site owners to change, modify, and build new content themselves. After all, modern web content needs to be flexible and evolving, but not everyone is a developer who can build custom layouts to fit each use case.
    As content and functionality become even more modular thanks to advances like the Gutenberg editor, theme designers will have to accommodate even more flexible ways of visualizing and presenting information. How do we anticipate and accommodate the needs of a constantly evolving website while providing visual solutions that are clean, thoughtful, and consistent?
    In this talk, we’ll discuss the principles of Atomic Design, how to stop thinking of your content as “pages” and “posts” in favor of the concept of “building blocks”, and how to extend this mindset to utilize the potential of Gutenberg as it is now, and where it might be going in the future.

    April 16, 2020 — “This session begins with three separate case studies – from Bill Erickson, Ellen Bauer, and Beth Soderberg – to help you prepare themes for Gutenberg and concludes in a tremendous panel discussion.

    Bill uses his time at the very beginning to show how to improve content management for clients by applying careful, thoughtful work to your themes. In the second presentation, Ellen talks about important considerations when working on themes that you plan to distribute to others (that is, themes you plan to sell or provide to a large audience for free). Then Beth helps us to build smarter starter themes using better default block styles and support.

    After the presentations, each speaker returns to participate in a panel discussion about the challenges and considerations they couldn’t cover in their separate presentations.”
