  • Sara Presenti: Emozioni nell’UI Design: come creare una connessione con l’utente

    WordCamp Italia 2020Speaker: Sara Presenti

    November 2, 2020 — Le campagne pubblicitarie emozionali hanno due volte più successo delle campagne tradizionali. Applichiamo questi principi all’interfaccia che dobbiamo progettare e avremo un sito che attrae gli utenti, che li spinge all’acquisto, che li farà ritornare. Invece di parlare di Mobile-first, concentriamoci sul concetto di “Emotions-first”. Progettiamo una interfaccia web con un approccio emotions-first, chiedendoci: quali emozioni deve provare l’utente e sono più utili allo scopo che vogliamo ottenere?
    Immagini, tipografia, colori, testi: vediamo come creare connettere con l’utente grazie ai principi di un design emozionale.

  • Eileen Violini: Beyond pretty-simple design principles to create richer user experiences

    WordCamp Europe 2020Speaker: Eileen Violini

    June 18, 2020 — Great websites don’t just happen. Exceptional user experiences are part of a rich study of psychological principles that are more than pretty pictures. By mastering a few design concepts we can create UI patterns that make it easier for users to navigate pages, consume information, make purchases and interact with our online brand.
    With the evolution of WordPress, design will play an increasingly important role as decisions move into the hands of users.
    This talk will explore how the key laws of UX can be applied to every aspect of our site, plugin, app or store, providing designers, developers and product managers with a framework of terms to create well-designed interfaces for editors and end-users.

  • Pascal Birchler: Decluttering WordPress

    WordCamp Torino 2017Speaker: Pascal Birchler

    April 14, 2017 — As a developer working at a UX and WordPress agency, I’ve learnt a lot about common UI and UX mistakes.

This will include helpful advice for developers who want to learn more about UX and designers who want to start contributing to WordPress core.

  • Caspar Hübinger: Big little shame – A story of empowered user experience through localization

    WordCamp Torino 2017Speaker: Caspar Hübinger

    April 14, 2017 — About half a year ago I gave a talk at a WordCamp in my country.

    A big fat elephant had been sitting in the middle of the room since WordPress in had existed in our language, and at that WordCamp I pointed right at it.

    I demonstrated how terribly frustrating the presence of that elephant was for people who got to sit in its shadow.

    I also presented a plan to get the elephant out of the room in orderly fashion, and bring in unicorns instead.

    Many people cheered when I had finished the talk. A few said nothing. Nobody argued the beauty of unicorns.

    A couple of weeks later I went to Rosetta and proposed the localizing community should retire the elephant soon now.

    Then I introduced the unicorns.
    Hell broke loose.

    Some people argued unicorns didn’t exist (while looking right at them), and what I had presented was unethical.

    Others said the elephant had officially been approved to sit in the room, and as long as no official regulation existed to replace that statute, it would be beyond irresponsible to proceed removing an official animal from an official room, and besides, who believed in unicorns anyways.

    A couple of people started to cast rocks.
    Luckily, I had friends who helped me out.

    When the sun finally came out again, we picked up our courage and moved on.

    I kept looking after the unicorns.

    I read books and articles about elephants and unicorns, and how that elephant possibly had become so official. And how unicorns were becoming official as well—slowly, but steadily.

    —-

    There is a filthy big little shame sitting in WordPress’ localized user interfaces, in many languages with grammatical genders: Women are discriminated by default. This talk addresses the need to solve that dilemma—and examples how it possibly can be solved.

    WordCamp Belfast 2016Speaker: Amit Wadhwa

    November 2, 2016 — A lot of developers and WordPress experts tell people what to do with it and how awesome it is.

    So I am going to concentrate on highlighting areas that people need to be wary of in order to create great, effective and excellent value Wordpress websites.

  • Caspar Hübinger: “Caring is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen anyone do.”—Thoughts on WordPress Plugin UI

    WordCamp Europe 2016Speaker: Caspar Hübinger

    July 1, 2016 — This presentation aims to give you a fresh perspective at WordPress plugin UI and ways to improve it. WordPress plugins often fail to provide elementary guidance and comprehensive communication via UI, thus causing unnecessary support requests and bad karma not only for their makers, but for the WordPress user experience in general. In this talk we take a close look at human reactions and emotions related to plugins and their presence in “WP Admin”, as well as good practices plugin developers can rely upon in order to create a comfortable and more “human” experience for the people using their products.

  • Belén Albeza: You might not need a CSS Framework

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Belén Albeza

    May 28, 2016 — Nowadays it is very common to find CSS frameworks like Bootstrap used everywhere. But they come at a cost, paid in big CSS files, styles that don’t get used, and a hard to maintain code base. In this talk we will talk about why using a third-party framework might not be the right choice for your project, be it a theme or a custom website. We will also see techniques to craft a blog theme without frameworks, from layout to individual UI components.
