Scaling Effectively with WordPress

One of the most common misconceptions about WordPress is that it does not scale well and is only for small sites. This assumption is untrue, but it exists because of wider misconceptions about the use of WordPress and its purpose. With good planning and consideration before and during a WordPress project’s lifecycle, we can ensure that the project scales well and has the flexibility to add new features without too much scope creep or performance impact. By avoiding waste, using coding standards, and adopting a serious software development mindset to WordPress projects it is easy to build WordPress sites that will scale effectively.

Visual perception and memory: how to win on the web with better visual communication

We all know that 3 seconds is all it takes to lose the attention of visitors to our web pages. But there’s hope yet! We can all win on the web by leveraging the brain’s strengths and limitations. An understanding of how the human brain processes visual information can greatly help us win our visitors over and keep them where we want them, instead of losing them to cyberspace.

By knowing how the brain (and people!) interpret visual language, we can create designs and graphics that communicate clearly and are effective on a cognitive as well as an emotional level. This will lead to better UX and better sales for our clients. This talk gives a brief introduction to this fascinating topic, with practical, actionable examples accompanying the theory.
