Another day of great people and interesting conversations. Lunch was amazing today, for a conference. BBQ chicken, beef brisket, corn bread! Soda! Not just water, ha. The after-party at Lucky Strike bowling alley was perfect. Open bar, catered food, fun people, though I couldn’t find the ping pong tables. I wanted to challenge Derek Smart (Automattic Table Tennis Champion) to a game.
Make WP_CLI Work For You: Extending WP-CLI With Custom Commands: A talk about writing code to build tools to build websites. Geek heaven. If you’re not using WP-CLI, get started.
Gamify WP: A fun talk on gamification, and how a developer Automattic used the technique to motivate people to test using Calypso to write blog posts.
High Performance WP: A quick talk on all the things one should do. Yes, I need a better checklist.
Low Tech is Future of WP: Another solid talk by Eric Mann now how slow WIFI, slow internet connections are an opportunity for WordPress websites. And l learned Chrome Development Tools can mimic a slow connection for testing.
HTTP API: Use REST, CRUD in communication with 3rd party APIs? WordPress has built in functions to make this stuff easier to use.
WP and Museums, Mel Choyce: A great 2 person talk with a client and a developer and their approach in putting together a website for a museum collection with 40,000 potential pieces of data. These case study talks are great.
