  • Ruth Raventós: A/B testing – the art of building better websites with science!

    WordCamp Europe 2020Speaker: Ruth Raventos

    June 19, 2020 — After spending enough time working with WordPress, you end up developing a sixth sense of what works and what doesn’t work. For example, experience allows us to distinguish good ideas from bad ones, or a professional web design from a poor quality one.
    However, if you want to build a profitable WordPress site, why rely solely on your instincts when you could rely on objective measures implementing an A/B test? In this talk Ruth will present why A/B tests are important and the types of tests you might want to do on your own websites. She will spend some time reviewing an A/B checklist to discover what things to test and will provide some implemented test examples and their results.

  • Smaro Maroglou: Γεφυρώνοντας το χάσμα μεταξύ creative και development στον κόσμο του WordPress

    WordCamp Thessaloniki 2019Speaker: Smaro Maroglou

    June 15, 2020 — Παρά την ευελιξία και ευκολία στη χρήση που χαρακτηρίζει τη πλατφόρμα του WordPress, συχνά παρατηρούνται λάθη κατά την διαδικασία της υλοποίησης μιας εφαρμογής, σε επίπεδο απαιτήσεων, σχεδιαστικών και λειτουργικών επιλογών. Τα λάθη αυτά αφορούν συνήθως στη συνεργασία των ομάδων σχεδιασμού και προγραμματισμού. Και οι δύο ομάδες συμβάλλουν στη δημιουργία της εφαρμογής και διαδραματίζουν πολύ σημαντικό ρόλο, αλλά έχουν διαφορετικά σύνολα δεξιοτήτων, εργάζονται σε διαφορετικά αντικείμενα κι έχουν διαφορετική νοοτροπία. Καθώς αυτό είναι ένα σημαντικό θέμα που κοστίζει χρόνο και χρήμα στην εταιρία αλλά και στον πελάτη, έχουμε αναπτύξει, και προτείνουμε, μια σειρά από καλές πρακτικές, χρήσιμα εργαλεία και οδηγούς για την «γεφύρωση του χάσματος», αποσκοπώντας σε ένα σωστό και οργανωμένο πλαίσιο συνεργασίας μεταξύ των ομάδων σχεδιασμού και προγραμματισμού. Αυτές οι πρακτικές, βελτιώνουν το εργασιακό περιβάλλον, ενισχύουν την ανεμπόδιστη ροή διαδοχής των έργων και, τελικά, βελτιστοποιούν την εμπειρία των τελικών χρηστών.

    Despite the versatility and ease of use that characterizes the WordPress platform, errors are often encountered in the process of implementing an application, at the level of requirements, design and operating options. These mistakes are usually in the cooperation of the planning and implementation teams. Both teams contribute to the creation of the application and play a very important role, but they have different sets of skills, work on different objectives and have a different mentality. As this is an important topic that costs time and money to the company and to the customer, we have developed, and we propose, a set of good practices, useful tools and guides for “bridging the gap”, aiming at a proper and organized framework of cooperation between the planning and implementation teams. These practices improve the work environment, enhance the unobstructed flow of projects and ultimately optimize the end-user experience.
