EP45 – WordCamp San Francisco 2013 #WCSF Recap – WPwatercooler – July 29 2013

Show Notes:

On this episode of WPwatercooler we will be discussing WordCamp SF 2013, the State of the Word address and after parties.

The Hallway Track

There are many “Man” or “Woman on the Street” interviews that were conducted by Jason Tucker and Se Reed. Those can be found soon on the WordCamp San Francisco WordPress.TV page.

State of the Word

State of the Word address by Matt Mullenweg:

  • OCWP got a big shout out for their 10th anniversary party.
  • WordPress release cycle – updates and plugins will be updated the most
  • The release of 3.6 has been postponed
  • 3.7 and 3.8 release being so close together will create a lot of problems for people that use it in an enterprise setting
  • Matt said the releases will be small updates with less iterations

Our favorite sessions

Mike Schroeder – WP CLI (command line interface) talk was really excellent. His talk isn’t stagnant. He’s constantly fine tuning it so there is always good, new information.

Helen Hou-Sandi – Customizing the WP Admin interface

Carrie Dills – her talk “Co-opetition” Cooperation, collaboration and competition was great. She highlighted best of competition as well as collaboration.

Josh Broton – on Responsive Design. There were 2 huge takeaways: 1) making photoshop images 2.2x bigger and setting quality to 0 then scaling down in the browser saves a huge amount of work. 2) Text in line? justify for grid layouts, if you text in line justify the parent elements and use display inline block on the child elements, you can have completely justified grid system.

Natalie MacLees – Her room was packed out. She gave her talk in a really compelling story-telling manner.

Mika Epstein – Don’t Use WP Multi-Site. She gave basics of what the watch out for if you want to use WordPress multi-sites.

Ian Stewart – Themes – Super passionate and really inspirational. Do not miss it when it’s on WordPress TV

Contributor Day

  • The most people that have ever gone to contributor day.
  • Steve learned how to commit a patch
  • There was a large focus was on the support and documentation team. That’s where Se and Suzette spent their time. They worked on the Theme Developer Handbook. There will be no standardization for theme options.

    Musical instruments which produce sound naturally (not electronically) do so by either causing something to resonate – such as guitar and piano strings
    or the skins and metallic surfaces of a drum kit etc.
    When planning your home theater system you will need to account for the audio system and
    how it will be integrated into the entertainment room.
    Everything else has to be kept either in the bedroom
    or the garage.
