Supporting the first WordCamp for Publishers

WordCamp for Publishers

Denver, Colorado

Speaking Sponsoring

The first WordCamp curated for publishers begins Thursday in Denver, and features sessions for engineering, product, and editorial teams at news rooms big and small.

With our mission to make a better web for content creators, it’s no surprise that many of our clients are publishers, from storied giants like The New York Times and Time Inc to breakout digital voices like 9to5mac and Uproxx. Combined with our committed support for open platforms like WordPress, we’re proud Gold Sponsors of WordCamp for Publishers, the highest tier publicly offered.

I’ll be participating in the event along with fellow 10uppers Ben Ilfeld, Whitney Yadrich, Jay Moore, and Derrick Koo. We’re eager to learn, and eager to share: four of us will present at the event.

I’m excited to be presenting “An Introduction to Test-Driven JavaScript Development” at Syntax Code and Craft Conference on May 18. SyntaxCon, held in Charleston, SC, is a multi-day, full stack code conference for developers and engineers. My talk introduces the concept of test-driven development (TDD) when working with JavaScript, highlights its benefits, clarifies some common misconceptions, and provides examples of how to implement TDD into your everyday workflow.

On March 9th, join me at A Day of REST Boston: a conference devoted to exploring the WordPress REST API in-depth. My lightning talk, 5-10 Use Cases in 10 Minutes, describes various ways organizations are using the REST API in their digital projects.

In Backbone & the REST API: A Love Story, Lead Web Engineer Adam Silverstein explains how Backbone is used in WordPress core and walks through the core REST API JavaScript client, started and led by 10up. As a follow-up to this session, on March 10th, Adam is leading a half day workshop on developing with Backbone and the REST API.

Speaking at Remote Working Conference 2016

Remote Working Conference

Speaking

Join team 10up (from wherever you are) on Dec 6 and 7 for the 2016 Remote Working Conference. This two-day streaming event focuses on how to succeed in a remote working environment and will dispel the myths around distributed teams.

On Day 1, John Eckman will present “Distributed, not Disconnected: Employee Engagement for Remote Work.” Remote teams carry the stigma of being less connected than their co-located counterparts. John will share techniques and tools to drive engagement in a distributed workplace.

On Day 2, I close the event with my talk “Designing a Better UX Hiring Process.” Vetting UX applicants can be a challenge for remote agencies. Video interviews and online portfolios help, but cannot be the only metrics used to find the best UX design talent. In this talk, I’ll share our strategy for attracting and hiring top UX candidates.

I’m presenting “Visual Regression Testing with PhantomCSS” at Front Porch Conference in Austin on Tuesday. Front Porch brings together leading experts in web design and development to share their knowledge. I will present a better way to QA websites—traditionally an inefficient effort requiring manual review of an entire site after each code change—illustrating how PhantomCSS test suites can automatically compare visual differences and flag changes for further review.

Saint Louis

Speaking

Join 10up at php[tek] 2016 on May 23-27 in Saint Louis. We are co-sponsoring the event with our cloud infrastructure partner Joyent, and will be demoing our WordPress Docker composition. Plus, team 10up Senior Web Engineer Steve Grunwell will present two sessions.

In Steve’s first talk, “Professional Development for Professional Developers,” he will show how developers can continue to learn new web development skills without being overwhelmed by an industry characterized by new frameworks and tools cropping up weekly. His second talk, “Building for the PHP Command Line Interface,” covers the characteristics of well-written PHP CLI scripts. Steve will also make the case for writing custom commands, and provide an overview of different command line tools, including WP-CLI, Artisan, and Drush.
