WordCamp Video Highlight 2018/01/19

We are almost three weeks into the new year and WordCamps are starting to get geared up. So far for 2017, 1,543 videos have been published on WordPress TV, with more videos being submitted. This is compared to the 1,804 total videos that were published for the year 2016.

I decided to feature two videos this week that are geared towards beginners.

Getting Started With WordPress

From WordCamp Kampala 2017 comes this video titled Getting Started With WordPress. Muakelele Rogers does a great job explaining how to perform a  basic installation of WordPress, setup a theme and creating a child theme.

Introduction to WordPress

And from WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017, Dhara Vihol has this Introduction to WordPress video. Dhara states: “WordPress” is a biggest buzzing word in the field of web development nowadays. Starting from 2003, WordPress has altered from just a blogging tool to a huge Web Development Platform.

If you have an interest in helping edit WordCamp videos, you can see a list here. Just jump in, download, edit and export. You can find editing instructions here.

Also, if you have any questions, you can reach out to the WPTV team members on the Slack channel – wordpress.slack.com.

 

WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/09/26

This week we have two videos from two WordCamps. One for beginners and one for developers.

First up is Jerett Farmer and his presentation at WordCamp Los Angeles 2016 titled WordPress By A Dummy.

Jerett has some help from a special friend and the audience as he helps new users prepare for their first website.

“This presentation would be great for brand new or newish users who wants a brief over view of getting a secure and easy to administer site up with as little trouble as possible.”

 

Next, from WordCamp Pittsburgh 2016 is Josh Pollock with The WordPress API and the Evolution of WordPress.

Josh talks about the possibilities of using the REST API to deliver better experiences and break expectations to users.

“In this talk, I will cover many of the possibilities for using WordPress in new and exciting ways as well as to improve how we build the most common elements of a WordPress site.”
