If you’re thinking of starting a business or if you’re new to online business, you won’t want to miss this talk. You’ll learn about my biggest mistakes and how I went from knowing NOTHING about websites to now making the majority of my income through WordPress based-websites that I personally build and manage.
Reading and writing poetry makes us better at everything. When our brains are on poetry, we observe the world and our work differently. We learn how to notice, we put craft into our work, we handle challenges with more grace and perseverance.
We stay in the moment a little longer.
There’s a reason the WordPress tagline “Code is Poetry” resonates with us. Come find out why.
This discussion will assist developers and product owners to rapidly illustrate editorial requirements. The goal is to help create seamless, pain-free, admin interfaces that make publishing in WordPress fun. We will walk through the process of creating admin mockups to show your clients or help guide your own code.

Stop making do with whatever you can find in a plugin and start making the right interfaces for your content and content creators.
We all love installing a Plugin and getting that feature we want, but its not so great when our site goes down when we turn it on.

Many great projects, products, and companies have grown out of side projects or hobbies. Apple, Twitter, and even Gmail exist because someone dedicated their spare time to testing the waters. Most of your favorite WordPress themes, plugins, and websites were brought to life during someone’s day off.
But not all side projects need to be huge, life-altering excursions. Whether it’s building a WordPress plugin, learning a new software package, or building an entire website, they can be whatever you need them to be; from developing a new skill to bringing in extra income to simply having a little fun. Side projects can also be a great way to learn what you’re made of, try new avenues, and build relationships with other web professionals.
Join Rachel to discuss the pros (and cons) of side projects, learn about a few projects that turned into so much more, and hopefully leave with a few ideas of your own.
What if I told you that writer’s block can be a thing of the past?
With some data-driven content marketing tools and tricks, you’re never gonna run out of ideas. Better, I’ll talk about a process you can use to get those ideas to the screen–from developing a content calendar, to researching keyword opportunities, to writing about topics that your potential readers are already desperately looking for.
The data is there. Let’s use it.
The WordPress REST API has the potential to put a familiar face on the content management of a whole world of front-ends. Imagine a campus tour app that uses the same content infrastructure as the event kiosk in the student union and the .edu site. Then come see how to build it.

* See how the different platforms interact to display traditional and custom post types and respond to API endpoints
* Reflect on pros and cons of using the API to centralize content management in your organization
* Download example code used in the presentation to understand more about how the API can be leveraged for their needs
Let’s be honest… We are not, nor will we ever be, Beyoncé. But, mere mortals can learn from Queen Bee’s impeccable social media marketing strategy and use WordPress to get it done. With 10.6 million likes and counting on Instagram, Beyoncé knows how to connect with her followers by sharing glimpses of her life in photos or in short videos. In order to build your following for your brand or business, you must engage your audience, but let’s do it like Beyoncé! We’ll take a look at the importance of proper and timely engagement, as well as what the average WordPress user can utilize in order to create seamless and streamlined avenues for engagement, right now! We’ll even take a step further and discuss what the average developer can implement in order to make engagement much easier for their users to engage properly. Because ‘Yoncé certainly did not build her empire of 14 million Twitter followers by sporadically sharing (or oversharing) on social media. Yet, the greater question is, “Is there a formula for social media success when promoting a business brand?” YES!
Writing the code is only half of the equation. Managing release cycles, testing, backwards compatibility, beta versions, releases, and support is the other half. How is code managed? How do database updates and migrations occur? How does code and data sync between production, staging and local environments?

In particular what’s helped their businesses and customers succeed, how can partners in the chain help each other and ways to identify which practices are the best fit for different scenarios.
Panel will be moderated by Rachel Cherry.

WordPress is better!
Drupal is better!
Joomla! is better!
Sound familiar? The open source community has the habit only to look inside ourselves and never look what else might be going on in the other communities or projects. As someone who currently serves on leadership for Joomla and also the evangelist of BoldGrid has seen the best of multiple open source communities. I have seen patterns emerge across our communities.
This talk will explore my experience being married to open source. I will also explore the ways the communities support each other through initiatives such as CMS Garden (An initiative to promote all major open source CMS projects). I will also share the top things I learned about myself and the combined future of an open source web.
