Klein News Innovation Camp, Web Summit, WordCamps, and Other Recent 10up Talks

Service (to our clients, our colleagues, and our communities) is one of 10up’s core values, and one way we see that value made concrete is in sponsoring and speaking at various conferences connected to WordPress, content publishing, and generally making the web a better place.

This fall has been especially busy – so much so we’ve neglected to share updates here.

Upcoming:

Gabe Karp, 10up’s Business Director in Europe, will be speaking next week at Web Summit 2017 in Lisbon. The “largest tech conference in the world,” WebSummit brings 25 different conferences together in one physical space over 4 days. Gabe will be part of a Marketing Technology panel in the Growth Summit track on Nov. 7th

10up is excited to sponsor Klein News Innovation Camp (formerly Barcamp News Innovation), an open, unconference style event being held at Temple University in Philadelphia on November 4th, focused on the future of news and how we can improve communities and conversations across the web. I’m looking forward to participating personally – let me know on twitter (@jeckman) if you’ll be there as well.

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.

Allen Moore

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.

John Eckman

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.

Several 10up speaking appearances left in August

September is nearly here, but you can still catch 10up engineers at speaking engagements in August.
