WordCamp Frankfurt 2016

Once again, it was lightning fast: During WordCamp Frankfurt, many presentations, impressions and information were put online. We have summarized all the content we could find so far here.

Unfortunately, the timing was not optimal for us this time. There was too much to do around our investor acquisition. Thanks to many tweets under the hashtag #wcfra and many reviews, recaps and experience reports on WordCamp Frankfurt 2016, we can present an overview of impressions, presentations and information from the community here.

I'll be updating this post regularly to keep you up to date with the latest WordCamp info.

Update: Since I put the article online yesterday, many blog posts and talks have been added. So the list is already a lot longer than it was 24 hours ago.

Impressions from WordCamp Frankfurt 2016

Florian Ziegler has an impressive collection of images on flickr. Among them are several WordCamps. The WordCamp Frankfurt 2016 is his latest project and captures the atmosphere in black and white. By the way, our favorite picture is the one from colleague Caspar Hübinger, aka @glueckpress. We think it captures his passion for WordPress in a very special way.

They were one of the highlights at WordCamp Frankfurt 2016 and therefore got their very own blogpost from their mistress: French Bulldogs Jasper, Duke & Indra. The experience report from a dog's perspective can be found here.

Alain Schlesser celebrated two premieres at WordCamp Frankfurt: his first time as a volunteer and his first time as a speaker. He describes both experiences in detail in his private blog.

Sessions and presentations from WordCamp Frankfurt 2016

Already during the WordCamp many speakers have made their slidedecks available!

Where are the Core Contributors?

Felix Anrtz, aka @felixarntz, asks in his talk where all the Core Contributors have gone. Building on a Twitter survey, he identified the main barriers to engagement in WordPress core development: lack of direction, not enough time and frustration.

Participate - Share - Give Back

Thomas Brühl, aka @00Sleepy, expands on the topic of active engagement and addresses the possibilities available to every WordPress user to get involved. Regardless of whether she or he has programming skills or not. Thomas will show the different groups and ways to get involved in the WP Contributor world.

Myth Child Plugins

Bernhard Kau, aka @2ndKauBoy, has been looking into how you can actually customize Plugins to your needs.

Warning spoilers: the Child Plugins, which Bernhard wished for at WordCamp Frankfurt 2016, are unfortunately just a myth.

Remote Working for WordPress Businesses

Petya Raykovska, aka @petyeah, one of the organizers of WordCamp Europe 2016, has already put her slidedeck on remote working for WordPress companies online. She gives tips for the right organization and describes her own experiences.

Scale WordPress

Always a big topic: how do I properly scale my WordPress site ? Stefan Kremer , aka @WPAberSicher, shows how it works with Amazon S3.

WordPress in German

5 percent of WordPress installations are in German. This puts German in third place behind English and, surprisingly for me, Japanese. Bego Mario Garde, aka @pixolin, has summarized the situation of WordPress in German.

WordPress , data protection and CO

Preator Intermedia has dealt with a particularly important and obscure topic: The legal obligations of a website operator.

Our code must become more beautiful!

Alain Schlesser recently made the slides of his talk on "The Secret Sauce For Writing Reusable Code" available. In his talk, he focuses on the question of how code must be designed so that it can be reused particularly easily.

WordPress with React - More than a marriage of convenience?!

The slides for Paul Vincent Beigang's talk can now also be found on Slideshare.

Lectures in even more beautiful

Once again, scribbles of the presentations were made. Nicole Lücking, aka @photostroller, has given the presentations her very own touch. A very nice way to get a quick overview of the core topics of a presentation. You can find all the Skribbels in her Twitterfeed. In her personal blog, Nicole has also summarized her own impressions of WordCamp Frankfurt 2016.

This one is my favorite at the moment, by the way. Because it shows a problem that becomes relevant again and again, especially in our field of activity: The correct handling of WordPress updates. The presentation by Marc Nilius, aka @WPSicherheit, can be found here.
