February 25th — Juliette Reinders Folmer — The story of WPSEO and me

Or how a virtually unknown developer in the WP community became a lead developer of one of the world’s top 10 WordPress plugins.

How often do you find yourself frustrated by unanswered support requests about plugins or themes ? How often do you find yourself thinking “this plugin *nearly* does what I need, but not completely” ? And how often do you wonder why a bug which you fixed locally, still isn’t fixed in the #th official update of a plugin?

In this interactive talk I will take you on a journey through how I became involved with WordPress SEO by Yoast, what the effect has been on me personally and on my business, show you how git made it a lot easier to start contributing to (a lot of) plugins and themes, share some best practices, and tell you some anecdotes about the hurdles you might run into working in a virtual team and why white screens do happen.
