    Frank Corso: How does the Web Work?

    WordCamp Boston 2019Speaker: Frank Corso

    October 21, 2020 — While you use the internet and web every day, you may not have ever stopped to consider how all of it works. When managing your website, there are lots of components and systems working together to keep your site working. Understanding how all these work together allows you to make changes to improve your site as well as better communicate with the developers that you may get support from.

    In this talk, we will be exploring:

    What exactly is the internet?
    How do servers and hosting work?
    How do domains work?
    How do browsers work?
    How does the page cycle work?
    What do all the acronyms you encounter (such as FTP, DNS, JS, and more) mean?
    How does all this make your WordPress site work?

    Gorka Urrutia: Cómo arruinar tu vida montando un negocio de desarrollo web

    WordCamp Bilbao 2019Speaker: Gorka Urrutia

    June 10, 2019 — ¿Quieres dedicarte al desarrollo web como autónomo o con tu empresa y no sabes cómo empezar? ¿Cómo conseguir clientes? ¿Cuánto cobrar? ¿Te da miedo? ¿Cómo evitar que tus clientes tomen el control?.

    Llevo en el mundo del desarrollo web desde hace unos cuantos años (no diré cuántos) y por el camino he sufrido, he aprendido, he reído, he llorado, he acertado, me he equivocado, me han dado de tortas y las he repartido (no tantas como me hubiera gustado). Voy a compartir mi experiencia y dar unos sabios (espero) consejos para evitar que fracases:

    – ¿Puede todo el mundo ser autónomo o montarse por su cuenta? – Autónomo sí, solo no ¿Debo buscar socios? ¿Con quién debo asociarme? – ¿Cómo buscar clientes? – ¿Cómo establecer mis precios? – ¿Cómo evito que los clientes se me suban a las barbas? – La constancia es la clave. – ¿Qué conocimientos técnicos debo tener? — La idea de esta charla es la siguiente: – Contaré mi trayectoria personal de manera muy breve, amena y divertida incidiendo en mis aciertos y errores. – Daré consejos sobre clientes, promoción, precios, socios, etc. –

    Terminaré diciendo que no todo el mundo puede/debe montarse por su cuenta. Quiero que la gente salga de la charla con una idea más clara de cómo montar un negocio de desarrollo o cómo mejorarlo si ya lo tienes, cómo evitar fracasar, cuáles son los errores más comunes y cómo lograr el éxito.

  • Francesca Marano: Formattare testi per il web

    Francesca Marano: Formattare testi per il web

    WordCamp Rome 2018Speaker: Francesca Marano

    April 16, 2019 — Premi Invio e invece di una nuova riga ottieni un nuovo paragrafo. Vuoi creare un elenco annidato e semplicemente non sembra come lo vuoi. Hai incollato il testo da Word e il suo formato è completamente sbagliato.

    La formattazione di un articolo in WordPress può essere noiosa e frustrante, ma è un passo cruciale nella scrittura per il web. Le persone leggono sullo schermo in modo diverso rispetto alla carta e la formattazione del testo li aiuterà ad arrivare alla fine.

    Questo talk ti mostrerà come sfruttare le opzioni disponibili in WordPress e ti insegnerà come risolvere alcuni problemi comuni con alcuni tag HTML.
