We have two recipes on how to be a highly productive remote worker, given from different perspectives and in Spanish and English.

Raul works primarily from a stable environment, is married and has three children. His tips and tricks apply to everyone working from home, an independent office or a coworking spot. En Español.
Kat works primarily from a changing environment with varying WiFi/data speeds and connectivity, different languages and time zones. Her hints and hacks apply to everyone who travels one day/week/month or all year. In English.

We’ll have a Q&A session, plus invite the community to add “new ingredients” to the recipe based on their experience.

Running tests with real users is critical for so many organizations, whether when evaluating MVPs or just as part of iterative updates. For an organization that already has embraced inclusive design, the next step is to integrate it into user testing by incorporating users with disabilities into your normal testing process. Note that this is not the same as accessibility testing. Ideally your accessibility work is done so that you can test a fully functional and accessible site/application for usability regardless of disability. I will discuss how to plan for and execute these sessions as well as pitfalls to avoid. Ideally you will walk away with high-level understanding of where to start.

How to deliver and receive success and excellence

This talk will focus on the success and failures from building a 6 figure plugin sales business.

Have you ever made a plugin, and asked yourself what on earth you were thinking?

Or did you buy a plugin and it had no end of problems, but the developers weren’t supportive?

Some plugins are great, work seamlessly with your website, and deliver on what they promised.

Some are really, really bad. Just awful. Refund me now! Your website stops working, there are constant problems, the plugin developer is useless.

Chris Bryant has had some major plugin failures, and some great successes over the past 10 years, in his web development firm.

In this non technical talk, Chris will share his successes and failures with making plugins over the past decade. Topics to cover include:

For Business Owners

Why your website company might be the worst people to make your plugin.
What makes a good WordPress plugin?
Setting expectations – What do you get for your money when you buy that $15 plugin?
Why does the plugin you bought not work as expected?
Why is it so expensive to have one system talk to another and what can I do about it?
The role of quality, accuracy and price in choosing a plugin developer.
For Web Developers

What happened when we were overloaded with support requests.
How the smallest Git almost crushed us.
The time we were told our plugin was about to be removed.
How to build a successful business with WordPress plugins.
Case Studies
We’ll also cover a broad range of case studies which will provide valuable insights to both business owners and developers, including:

The rarer one – $10,000 plugin
The everyday gem – $500 plugin
The big win – increasing plugin value with incremental improvement
The complex one – Enterprise financial integration & risk management

Una de las ventajas de utilizar un gestor de contenidos como WordPress para publicar en internet, es que el contenido está separado del diseño y de las funcionalidades. De esta manera, podemos cambiar de tema y que el aspecto de nuestro sitio web cambie; podemos cambiar de plugins y que las funcionalidades cambien; y, a pesar de cambiar el diseño o las funcionalidades, los contenidos siempre permanecerán.

Esta característica tan ventajosa se puede ir al traste si aplicamos malas prácticas en el desarrollo de la web. Si, por ejemplo, el tema que instalas lleva incorporada alguna funcionalidad, siempre deberás tener instalado ese tema para que la web siga funcionando. Esta dependencia es lo que se conoce como lock-in.

Pero, ojo, cuidado, bloguero, existen malas prácticas en la gestión de contenidos que tú haces, que también pueden generar dependencias. ¡Y son más habituales de lo que crees!

Veremos lo que no hay que hacer jamás y qué debemos hacer siempre para conservar intacto lo más valioso de tu web: los contenidos.
