WordCamp Boston: “Theming and Mobile: Optimizing your site for various devices”

WordCamp Boston has been incredible. I was thrilled to give a talk on "Theming and Mobile" with an emphasis on Responsive Web Design. The presentation is sort of a pre-cursor to my full "Responsive Web Design" talk that I'm thrilled and humbled to be giving at WordCamp San Francisco. Here is the description and slides of the talk that I gave yesterday at WC Boston:

Your site is about your content. How do we optimize for all the different devices out there but still keep our brand? Do we even optimize at all? What are different ways we can look at how our content is handled? We are going to take a look at different techniques out there including: responsive web design, media queries, dealing with video, touch, and other various plugins & CSS tricks to truly display your site and your content in the best possible manner in any given scenario.

Wordcamp 09: “WordPress and Your Brand”

At Wordcamp Birmingham 2009, I had the privilege of speaking on WordPress and Your Brand. I have embedded the slides from the talk. I hope that some people were able to learn a bit about "adapting WordPress to fit your brand rather than your brand to WordPress." I absolutely loved Wordcamp and can not wait for the next one.
