Word after word: my writing workflow.

From blog posts to internal reports, reviews, documentations, business proposals or social statuses, there is a wide range of cases to write for. Whether you're an accomplished writer or not, you need to have an established writing workflow in order to create better content with less resources.

In this talk Franz will explain how he starts from a simple idea and develops a good text that is ready to be read by someone else. Tools of the trade, good and bad habits, text accessibility, but also lessons learned from pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and other linguistics subfields.

This session is aimed not only at authors and content creators, but also at all professionals who want to write more effectively for different purposes.

Presented by Franz Vitulli (https://twitter.com/franzvitulli). Franz works at Human Made (https://hmn.md/), a top-tier WordPress agency (WordPress.com VIP partner) that provides development and consultancy for large-scale sites and enterprise clients, creates awesome products online—such as Happytables, BackUpWordPress and Nomadbase—and organises WP and FOSS related events.

He focused on the marketing & bizdev side of the agency, contributes to WordPress in any way he can, is a remote working advocate, and loves sharing his knowledge and helping other people in the greater tech community succeed.

When he's not in front of his laptop, he's either playing one of his bass guitars or hitting the gym. Chat with him on Slack (@franz on both Making WP and the UK WP Slack team). Follow him @franzvitulli (https://twitter.com/franzvitulli)

log($this), $monitor->that()

Logging and monitoring is an important, but usually overlooked aspect of web application design. We debug them for eons in development, but what about after we've handed it over to our client? What happens if something goes wrong?

This talk will introduce the benefits of logging and monitoring and a few tips on how to implement them.

Presented by Craig Willis (https://twitter.com/craigwillis85). Craig is a developer at Ayima, building bespoke products and services. A keen advocate of Docker and general devops, he is the founder of LeedsPHP (http://leedsphp.org/) and a co-organiser of PHP London (http://phplondon.org/).
