Wordpress Workflow


Workflow: We'd like to invite everyone who creates Wordpress websites to briefly share their workflow, and share what works and what doesn't.

Workflow can mean lots of different things to different people. For developers it can mean version control, code library management, deployment, and all sorts of technical things; for writers it can be dealing with a blank page, writing drafts, editorial control and more.

What we're interested in here is your interpretation of workflow: a very, very quick overview (one or two slides, if you want to provide visuals) of how you work and the start to end of your typical job.

There's no right or wrong and there's lots we can learn from each others' approaches to the one thing we all share: getting stuff done.

On a personal note, I'm also a desk geek, so if you want to talk for a minute around a picture of your desk that would be awesome.

Delighted we have the following volunteers:

• Adam Maltpress,

• Ben Attenborough,

• Chris O'Dell,

• Simon Bragg,

• Steven Watts.

More volunteers welcome, only needs a few slides......

Usual format:

1: 20 second introduction about what you do with Wordpress;

2: 4 (max) 3 minute pitches: Requests for advice, discoveries, other events, anything you'd like to share.

3: Main presentations: please send some slides to Adam by 18:00 on the 16th. Adam brings a PC, projector and 4G connection. He can handle ppt, impress.

4: Discussion about future topics, and suggestions for speakers.

5: Beer.


There's still time to volunteer to talk (briefly!) about how you work: non-developers too, please!

If you have slides email them to [masked] - PDF, PowerPoint or Open Document format please, 4:3 (not widescreen) format if possible, and try to keep it as brief as you can. If you want to join in but not do slides we'll pop you on the end so let me know tonight!

Also: bring along your WordPress questions for our little clinic at the end: if the room can answer we will, otherwise we'll find a volunteer to present the answer next time.
