Notes from WordCamp Halifax 2017

I was so happy to be part of the first ever WordCamp Halifax last weekend, speaking about a topic near to my heart: making WordPress development suck less.

I also debuted a new technique for “wrapping” WordPress inside a Slim Framework core (you could easily adapt this for other frameworks too).

Below are the slides from my talk, along with some links and notes.

Hello, my name is… Content Marketing

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 17.22.28Content marketing is a nebulous topic. In a talk I gave tonight at the Houston WordPress Meetup, I discussed what content marketing is, how it’s actually nothing new, what makes great content, and how to develop (and refine) your own content marketing process.

Thanks to the Houston WordPress Meetup group for hosting me. I appreciate the chance to speak for y’all!

The slides from my talk are viewable on Speaker Deck. Have any questions? Leave them in the comments for this post.

Notes from WordCamp Hamilton 2015

11350540_10206864637038912_1984241915493442626_nI was very excited to have the opportunity to speak at WordCamp Hamilton last weekend. I know a number of folks from the Toronto and Buffalo WordPress communities, so Hamilton was a great opportunity to see those folks plus meet some new faces.

My talk, “The WordPress-Powered Startup,” was about developing a startup software product/app with WordPress. It’s not necessarily the right long-term solution, but makes it easy to get your minimum-viable product up and running without hiring a dev team.

The slides from the talk are embedded below. Please feel free to send me questions, comments, and notes.
