If you missed it, here are slides with links and resources for my IndieWeb and WordPress presentation at WordCamp Riverside 2018. Video coming soon. Thanks to everyone who came and participated. I’m happy to answer any additional questions.

Read Preparing a conference talk by Jeremy Keith (adactio.com)
There are two aspects to preparing a talk: the content and the presentation. I like to keep the preparation of those two parts separate. It’s kind of like writing: instead of writing and editing at the same time, it’s more productive to write any old crap first (to get it out of your head) and then go back and edit—“write drunk and edit sober”. Separating out those two mindsets allows you to concentrate on the task at hand. So, to begin with, I’m not thinking about how I’m going to present the material at all. I’m only concerned with what I want to say.

A good and timely outline here as I begin laying out some ideas for a talk in November!

I just submitted a workshop/presentation proposal to WordCamp for Publishers: Chicago (Aug 8-10) on the topic of applying IndieWeb principles and new W3C recommended open web standards to publishing. I’m particularly excited because their theme is “Taking Back The Open Web”!

Fingers crossed!

Call for Speakers

I just submitted a talk on IndieWeb for WordPress for consideration at the upcoming inaugural WordCamp Riverside.

I ran out of time to finish off the details for WordCamp Los Angeles due to my recent move, so I’m glad I still might be able to do it before the end of the year.
