Is it "content management system" or "content manglement system"? It's up to us. Join content strategists and the content curious for a night of refreshments, commiserating and sharing around how we manage content. To kick of the coversation, there's a double-header of short talks, interrupted by one mercifully long intermission, along with plenty of time for questions and chat at the end.
While WordPress started out as "just a blogging platform" in 2003, it has earned an honored spot as one of the most popular web content management systems. In fact, the latest statistics from W3Techs shows WordPress has cornered over 57% of the known CMS market and powers nearly 20% of the internet.
From the University of Washington homepage to an online campus map, Mindy Messenger from University Marketing will share some of the creative ways her team has leveraged WordPress.
Empathy For The Devils
In the lightning round, Scott Pierce, POP's Senior Content Strategist, takes us on a familiar tour through the small circles of hell we go through toward CMS readiness. Many of the gremlins and demons we encounter can be exorcized, destroyed or made our pets. Sprinkled with insights and examples, it's a manifesto on recognizing the challenges we'll face, and imagining a future we can build for a better author experience.
