We’re gearing up for WordCamp US 2017

See our team’s preview of the WordCamp US sessions we are most excited about and why

Audience learning from a speaker at a conference

The Kanopi team is headed to Nashville in December to attend and sponsor WordCamp US! We are busy packing our bags and researching the sessions we’d like to attend.

Here’s what has us most excited, and why.

1. Some of the very people who made WordPress possible will be speaking at this year’s event. We are beyond excited to hear from Matt Mullenweg, WordPress co-founder, and Andrew Nacin, lead WordPress developer.

2. Our very own Director of Engineering, Katherine White, will lead a session on Documentation for Developers. She’ll share advice on how to write just the right amount of documentation to set your code up for success without going crazy.

3. We’ll learn about the inner workings of the Customizer JS API from Weston Ruter, including how to use React to build custom controls and how to preview changes to sites that use React-based themes.

4. We’ll be ready to conquer continuous integration and deployment after hearing from Tessa Kriesel who will teach us the ways of yml and script files.

5. We’re looking forward to Nathaniel Schweinberg’s overview of how to move a WordPress site from a single-server setup to a scalable, highly-available infrastructure on AWS.

We can’t wait to apply the insights and learnings from WordCamp US 2017 to our day to day work and to share more details here on the blog. Stay tuned!
