The good news: you've convinced the client they need a WordPress website. The bad news: you have to move their existing content out of Joomla or Drupal, and there's way too much of it. Murphy's Law of web development dictates that the customer’s data is always a mess--and tags are a disaster. Join us at the September WordPress meetup to learn how to deal with * Information Architecture — content types, taxonomies, and relationships, oh my. * WordPress, custom taxonomies, and ACF relationships (basic overview) * Basic migration: CMS Migration plugins * Advanced migration: WP All Import and writing a custom migration apps in PHP and MySQL ABOUT THE SPEAKER R. Scott LaMorte has been a WordPress developer and project manager for five years. He specializes in complete redesigns of large and complex sites with large amounts of data, and has migrated Drupal, Joomla, and custom CMS databases to WordPress. His hobbies include planning revolutions to overthrow the capitalist state and Earl Grey tea.
This is a workshop for people who are thinking about speaking at WordPress events, such as this WordPress Meetup and WordCamp--and for people who might be thinking about speaking at other kinds of events, too. During this hands-on session, we’ll look at what has stopped you from speaking in the past — and explore how to move past your fears. We will discuss some common myths about public speaking, different talk formats, and we will focus on finding your areas of expertise. (Yes, you have areas of expertise!) We will brainstorm topics you can talk about at a WordCamp or other event. Each participant will come out of the workshop with a WordCamp or meetup talk idea — and more confidence to submit it. (There will be a sign-up sheet for 2020 meetups.) ***You do NOT have to have any experience in public speaking. This workshop is for all levels of experience. This workshop is for you if: * You haven’t seen enough people like you speaking at WordPress events * You’ve thought about speaking at Meetup or WordCamp but haven’t been able to think of a topic * You think you don’t know anything worth speaking about AGENDA * Why speak at WordPress events? * Dispelling some myths about speakers/speaking * Coming up with topics and choosing one * Practice giving a short talk PREREQUISITE SKILLS No experience required. OBJECTIVES * Have several ideas for topics you could speak about * Recognize the basics of a good outline. * Apply what you have learned to your own outline. * Recall the different types of talk formats. * Practice public speaking in front of a small group to help build confidence. * Identify many of the fears that have stopped you from public speaking. Note: this is the WordPress.org Diversity Speaker Training workshop. If you're a member of an under-represented group and want to contribute your perspective, please get in touch!
We may not be able to discuss both DESIGNING and BUILDING layouts in the same meetup. I'd like to focus this one on what you need to consider when designing a responsive WordPress site: both design principles that apply to any responsive site, and how to incorporate the different elements of a WordPress site. Here are some points I'd like us to cover: • What designers need to know about WordPress before quoting a WordPress project • Why mobile-first design will make your life easier • Card-based layouts and atomic design principles • Device (or layout)-specific content • Navigation • Hero images, background videos, and other design trends I definitely have my own opinions on this, but would love some input from those of you who are real designers.
