I just found out there’s this thing called WordCamp Seattle happening June 8th at the HUB Ballroom. For a mere $20 (and free if you’re a student), you can surround yourself with other WordPress enthusiasts and learn things you never knew about WordPress. And the best part? You don’t have to be a developer to get the most out of this conference.
Just in time for the afternoon slump, here’s our Tegrity recording from today’s Web Council. We learn from Ian Lurie on how to increase search engine ranking by making our content “weird, useful, and significant.” Then we hear from Gina Hills and Terry Thompson about how to use SiteImprove to improve web site accessibility.
If you care about Python or you want to learn what all the fuss is about, then I have great news. On September 9th through the 13th, UW is proud to host the Seattle PyCamp 2013! If you have not heard about this amazing resource or want to learn more, please keep reading.
We’re very excited about this week’s Web Council lineup. We’ll have special guest Ian Lurie teach us practical ways to increase our search visibility (go SEO!), plus we’ll learn about improving site accessibility using SiteImprove.
Thank you to all who attended and aided the amazing success of the inaugural UW Code Camp. I hope everyone was as excited to attend as we were to host. I also hope everyone found Code Camp to be a great venue for learning and future collaboration. There were 150 more people than we initially estimated (a total of 200 attendees!), and the response afterwards was fantastic.
Get ready for the first ever UW Code Camp tomorrow, March 27! This will be a fast-paced day packed full of knowledge and collaboration with members of the University information technology community. Read this full post to see our tips on how to get the most out of your day at Code Camp and to view the agenda.
Don’t you just love Web Council? We sure do. So much so, we’re recording and sharing the meetings for your viewing pleasure.
Stuck on our image galleries? Don’t know what the heck “pagelet” means or how to use a “blogroll shortcode”? It’s okay, sometimes even we get confused. The Web Team has created unique widgets and customized our WordPress sites above and beyond, so we’re hosting this class to demystify some of our inventions.
Don’t miss the March 21st Web Council. We’ll hear about how to use Tegrity to create web content, about how News & Information sharply increased their traffic, and how records retention might affect you and your web content.
Our first ever Web Team class will be Tuesday, April 2nd and is titled “WordPress 101.” Priority for this class is given to current or future users of our hosted WordPress install. Read more for class details and to register.
