June 29, 2021 — Human beings crave connection with others and these days, many of those connections are made courtesy of the Internet.
As anthropologist Brian Solis once said:
Community is about doing something together that makes belonging matter
So how do you translate that sense of belonging to a digital community and intentionally encourage connection?
In this talk, we’ll cover some actionable steps to foster growth in our online (and someday IRL) communities.
December 30, 2019 — The WordPress community is comprised of people and their relationships with one another and the open source CMS itself. Combined we are a global neighborhood, complete with volunteers, freelancers, employees, a marketplace, and a multitude of opportunities; opportunities for relationships, working, learning, teaching, sharing, volunteering, and more.
At its foundation, its most fundamental part, this neighborhood is built by every individual member. We are each an integral part of this growing, morphing phenomenon, so it is up to us to ensure that it is a robust living organism.
How do we do that?
*For Myself: by making sure I stay healthy both physically and emotionally
*For You: by checking in on my friends and coworkers to help where needed
*For Us: by contributing to the community in thoughtful and deliberate ways
This talk will share ideas to keep us all healthy, learning, and flourishing, for the betterment of ourselves, each other, and the WordPress neighborhood.
August 26, 2019 — When is your site not built with the JAMstack? Is it a site built with a server-side CMS like WordPress? No, I’d like to share some idea about front end and back end to bring JAMstack to the world’s most popular CMS.
June 23, 2019 — Can one day’s work benefit thousands of people in the local community? Yes. For every do_action there is a positive and empowering re_action.
Hear the inside scoop about the first do_action day to take place in Europe, a one-day hackathon where we created WordPress sites for 5 non-profits and charities in the South West.
This talk provides a transparent account of why Bristol chose to do_action, what successes and challenges we faced, who it helped and how it made an impact.

June 1, 2018 — La community di WordPress, ed in special modo la community italiana, è una miniera d’oro di possibilità, di contatti e di amicizie. Ma, a lungo andare, può trasformarsi nel ‘centro’ di tutte le nostre attività. Tra il serio ed il faceto racconto di come si possa sopravvivere ad un gruppo di persone insostituibile ma senza farci sopraffare.
May 10, 2018 — Crearse una personalidad en la comunidad WordPress es más fácil de lo que puedas pensar, mantenterse ya es harina de otro costal.

May 5, 2018 — What could be the benefit of being part of the WordPress Community if you don’t even use WordPress? How far can you get if you decide to step out of your comfort-zone and overcome your fears?
My husband dragged me kicking and screaming to my first WordCamp. I did not even know what WordPress was up to that point and I was scared of meeting the “nerdy” part of my husband’s life probably due to not being able to get involved.
The story I want to share is about how things evolved afterward, as I visited several WordCamps as a passionate volunteer to the point of getting a true WordPress Community-Junkie. It is about how I became a WordCamp organizer, speaker and emcee in almost no time. It is about how I found new enjoyable professional challenges.
It is the story about how I have been changing my life completely in only one year, because I dared to step out of my comfort-zone.
September 30, 2017 — Quand on commence sur WordPress, on peut penser parfois qu’on a pas le niveau nécessaire. Et encore plus quand on est une femme, ou qu’on a peu de connaissance technique. Qui ne s’est pas senti intimidé au point de ne pas oser se lancer dans des métiers du web, sur WordPress ni aller à un WordCamp ?
Syndrome de l’imposteur, ou plafond de verre, de nombreux freins invisibles nous empêchent parfois de faire ce que l’on souhaite réellement.
Comment trouver sa place dans la communauté WordPress, par où commencer ? A travers mon histoire personnelle et ce que j’ai observé depuis 3 ans, je souhaite partager mon expérience, mes conseils et aider à se lancer toutes celles et ceux qui n’osent pas le faire.
