Lists are a Twitter feature that lets you group accounts into a curated stream so you can look at only the timelines you’re interested in at the moment. There are several lists related to wordPress, and one of them is the list created by David Bisset that contains all the speakers from WordCamp San Francisco 2014. It’s a great way to keep up with what’s going on at WCSF if you’re not here, and also a great way to keep up with the speakers once the camp is over. The list is here, and you can also subscribe to it from your Twitter client of choice. There are forty-six people on the list, and they range from developers of every kind, to bloggers. All of these people tweet a lot about WordPress, and Twitter lists can be a great way to get digestable pieces of information that you can use to further your knowledge. So follow this list, and you just might learn something.
Learning From The Community
I saw on Twitter last week that the next WordSesh is being planned. So I want to share some of my favorite talks from previous events. The first one I’m sharing is on design.
This talk by Michelle Schulp is one of my favorites because it looks at design as solving problems strategically and not just making things look pretty. I’ve worked with several sites that look pretty, only to dig deeper and find that the implementation is what I end up fixing because it bleeds over into making features of the site in question break. So it was refreshing to see design treated as problem solving and not just adding what too often turns out to be a superficial varnish.
