WordSesh, the first ever 24 hour free live streaming WordPress event, took place just a few short days ago. I had the privilege of helping organize and run the event with Scott Basgaard and Chris Cochran. The event was a huge success that featured an epic list of presenters from the WordPress Community.
Below are a few of the presentations that I enjoyed the most:
DradCast Kickoff Episode
Dre and I hosted a special WordSesh kickoff edition of the DradCast hosted by Scott Basgaard. We had a great time discussing how WordSesh was thought up, the logistics behind organizing an online only event, and some fun WordPress news.
Scoping Projects to Avoid Stress, Headaches & Angry Mobs
Lisa gave a great presentation on scoping projects for clients, which is a topic any entrepreneur can benefit from. She shares her experience with a client and ways she could have made the project run smoother by creating a detailed proposal and spec upfront.
WordPress Plugins, Code, and the Ecosystem in General
Everything & anything you’ve ever wanted to know about BuddyPress & bbPress
John’s presentation on BuddyPress and bbPress is a fun walkthrough on the history of both projects. John discusses the initial releases, journey to their current state, and also touches on the future of both BuddyPress and bbPress.
The best part of WordSesh is that all presentations are available online! To view any of the amazing videos visit the WordSesh YouTube page. Also be sure to follow @WordSesh on Twitter for updates on future events.
WordSesh proved that an online only WordPress event is something the community not only needs, but absolutely loves. Stay tuned for WordSesh 2!
