  • “Improving the User Experience of Your Sites”, by Neil Scott – Tuesday 27th February, 6:00pm at iCafe Sauchiehall St.
    WordPress is known for pre-made themes that make it easy to get started. However, after a while you might wonder why certain design decisions have been made, how they affect your users, and what you can do to make the site better.
    This is where User Experience (UX) design techniques come in. UX is way of bringing together user needs and business goals through research, testing, and design.
    This talk will introduce the concept of UX and provide practical tips for improving your site.

Glasgow WordPress co-working meet – Thursday 9th Feb

Every 2nd Thursday of the month from 6:30pm at Citizen M’s

WPGlasgow co-working meet, January 2017

Bring your questions, ideas or problems and hopefully we can all help each other out.

The beauty of this group is that you need no knowledge of WordPress to come along and join in straight away.

Do you want to know how to begin building a website, have you got a website and are having difficulties or do you just want to share your knowledge? Then this is the place to do so.

Previous meet-ups have been a great success! Our group is growing each month with new people coming along and sharing knowledge and experience which is great for all us newbie’s like me.

What have you got to lose, come see for yourself, could be the start of great things.

See you there !!

Glasgow WordPress meetup – Tues. 24th Jan. 2017

The Glasgow WordPress meetup started the year last Thursday 12th Jan. with a great co-working evening and is meeting again this month for a round-table discussion that should give for great conversation and a useful exchange of ideas for everyone.

Come and join us at meetup.com. All welcomed!

What it takes to build a website. Focus: web designer’s role.

Traditionally, the 3 roles involved in getting a website up and running have been very separate and well-defined. There is the website owner, the web designer and the backend developer. And although normally there is enough communication between them to get the job done, sometimes there is also a fair bit of misunderstanding.

This event will be the first of a series of three, where we will focus on each of the roles in turn, starting with that of web designer and frontend developer.

We are currently working to bring you a couple of lightning talks plus a roundtable discussion covering points such as:

• What makes a good theme or template?

• What would you add to the list of must-have best practices of web design?

•  Custom vs template.

• Frameworks vs. child theme.

• Which criteria do you use to decide when to use either?

• From the web design point of view, is the customer always right?

If you are a frontend developer, come along to share your thought processes and compare them with others.

If you are a website owner or backend developer, come along to find out what makes a web designer tick!

If you would be interested in giving one of the lightning talks, please get in touch on hello@wpglasgow.org
