• WordPress Zurich March Meetup

    Online event

    Hey everyone, long time no see!

    We'd love to welcome you to another WordPress Zurich meetup (online only!).

    *MEETING LINK IN SIDEBAR*

    This time, we'll be talking about WordPress 5.7 as well as Core Web Vitals.

    Of course, there's always time about informal discussions about discussions about other WordPress related stuff.

    This *online only* event is held in English. It will *not* be recorded.

    Please bring your own beverage :-)

    Topics:

    - All you need to know about WordPress 5.7 (presented by Pascal Birchler)
    - Core Web Vitals aka Google's new evaluation criteria (presented by Phil Marx)

    I'd like to thank Phil for joining us from Berlin (online meetups FTW!) to talk about Core Web Vitals, as these become more and more important for websites.

    As you might already know, Google will soon take new factors like Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS), Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) and First Input Delay (FID) into account when ranking websites.

    In this talk, Phil provides an introduction to what these terms mean, how to check your own site, and some basic suggestions for improving your site's Core Web Vitals.

  • March Meetup

    Liip

    Time to have another WordPress meetup!

    We are very excited to announce another awesome WordPress Zurich Meetup in March.

    The March meetup will feature two incredible talks, one technical and the other for all audiences and of course there will be enough time to chat and have beer to discuss all things WordPress.

    Felix Arntz, Developer Programs Engineer at Google will talk about "Web Policies and Reporting – Defining Contracts Between Your Site and the Browser":

    This short talk will provide an introduction to a couple of new web technologies — Feature Policy and Reporting API — and how you can use them in WordPress.

    Andreas Feuz, self-employed WordPress consultant & author will talk about "WordPress versus Website Builders: Is WordPress Doomed?"

    This short talk with slideshow (slides are available at: https://slides.com/onedaywebsite/wordpress-versus-website-builders/) looks at website builders like wix.com, squarespace to determine if they are a threat to WordPress in the CMS sphere or if they could actually unintentionally over the long term help WordPress developers, designers and consultants bring in totally new clients.

    We are excited about the talks and very happy to have two wonderful speakers in March, thank you Felix and Andy.
