WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/02/17

There are a lot of great stories out there in WordPress Land! Ever since I was a kid (long, long ago in a land far away), I have had an interest in life stories. If you do a search for “life” on the WordPress TV website, you will find several videos available for viewing.

Jeff Matson: How the WordPress Community Changed My Life

I had the pleasure of sitting in on Jeff’s presentation at WordCamp Kent 2016 and a few months later, interviewed him for WordPress TV. Jeff talks about his accidental fall into the WordPress community, how it has changed both his personal and professional life forever (and has the cool tattoo to prove it).

 

Ricky Blacker: How WordPress Changed My Life!

This video comes to us from WordCamp Sydney 2016. Ricky tells his story of how he became involved with WordPress, the WordPress community and also how attending WordCamp Sydney 2014 changed my life.

He gives examples of how giving back to WordPress can be beneficial in many ways, and also hopefully inspire those just embarking on their WordPress journey to follow their dreams.

Slides for this presentation can be found HERE.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/02/10

This week we are featuring two presentations about e-commerce.

According to Wikipedia,”E-commerce is a transaction of buying or selling online. Electronic commerce draws on technologies such as mobile commerce, electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web for at least one part of the transaction’s life cycle although it may also use other technologies such as e-mail.

2016 total retail sales across the globe are estimated to have reached $22.049 trillion, up 6.0% from the previous year, according to eMarketer. They estimate that sales will top $27 trillion in 2020.

Since 2010 there have been 179 videos published on WordPress TV that are related to e-commerce.

The videos below come from WordCamps Stockholm and Ann Arbor .

Ulrich Pogson: Building Multilingual e-Commerce Sites

Ulrich recently built wpzoo.ch to sell a few WordPress products. It is available in English and German. He covers the challenges and decisions that were needed to make and how it has worked out for him.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/01/06

With the announcement from WordCamp Central about the Incubator Program in February of 2016 and then three locations being chosen for the program, I thought featuring videos from WordCamp Harare and WordCamp Denpasar would highlight the progress that these Communities have made.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/12/16

I have a confession to make. This first video is one that I have been keeping a look out for since it was done at WordCamp Ann Arbor 2016. I admit that I may have a jaundiced view point, kind of like – If I hit my finger with this 16 pound sledge hammer, it MAY hurt.

Kyle Maurer and Adam Silver: WP Battles – Hacker vs. Webmaster

Ladies and gentleman, its Cyber Shield (Adam Silver) versus Malwarious (Kyle Maurer), its good versus evil, cute cats and puppies versus mean people.

The Internet is a battleground. It’s true. Every minute of every day, a war is being fought.

This is actually the third WP Battle presentation these two have done. A rap battle was done at WordCamp Ann Arbor 2015 and then a political style debate at WordCamp NEO 2016.

Pippin Williamson: Answers by Pippin

I had the misfortune of presenting in the same time slot as Pippin at a WordCamp a couple of years ago. I had three people (two feel asleep) and he had a standing room only crowd. This video is from WordCamp US 2016.

Pippin will answer some of the questions he is asked most often in regard to plugin development, business, managing a team, life, and other subjects.
