Dear all, in November we have a few lightning talks. We need two more speakers with 5-10 min presentations. Please, let us know if you are keen to do that!
Talk 1 is about speed optimisation and image compression from our WordCamp speaker Peter Warwick-Mahoney.
Website speed is so important, but with the plethora of tools available, what should you use? Peter takes us through the gamut of configurations he regularly uses to half a WordPress site’s loading time.
Peter is SEO expert, web developer & designer, all-round nice guy, and ravenous information devourer. Peter’s focus over the past decade has been on SEO (although it’s been a feature he’s offered since the late 90s), while making sure he keeps his typing fingers in the site creation pie too.
Talk 2 is about what is wrong with lists of must-have plugins from Maria Skatova.
Maria works with lots of bloggers and small business projects, doing lots of ‘fixing a problem’ work for websites, built by their owners. Her experience shows that plugins cause trouble quite often, and ‘must-have’ lists of plugins are the worst. Maria will also share her own ‘must-have’ list 🙂
Maria is married to WordPress for more than 10 years, and they have a gazillion of little websites together. She also is a co-organiser of WordPress Wellington meetup.
Talk 3 opens our Page Builders series with Thrive builder review from Peter Williamson.
Peter will share how he uses Thrive and why he prefers it to other page builders.
Pete Williamson has worked with WordPress for over 4 years now, having previously been involved in theatre and Audio-Visual industry.
