I’m happy to be contributing to the WordPress community as a speaker at WordCamp Atlanta 2018.
I submitted a few topics and have been selected to speak about development process for teams. Here’s the short description:
Overview of some processes used at an agency level. Version control, code standards, database migrations, environment aware config files and automated deployments. From local development setup to multiple environments, version control to automated deployments, content migration to modular mentalities. With some how-to talk and some how-not-to talk, we’ll discuss some ways to “soup up” our process to work for us when it comes to web development and WordPress.
Let me know if there are any topics you’d like to hear me cover and I’ll do my best to work it in.
I’ve also been asked to help out during the developer workshop day. Details are still to be ironed out, but it will be an introduction for newer developers and help them get up to speed on development best practices. It will also be a specific look at the development updates on WordPress 5.0, more specifically the Gutenberg editor.

After contributing to the presentations at the Atlanta meetup about Gutenberg I’m excited to again help out in preparing the community for the new editor experience.
WOW! A full house for the incredible meetup on #Gutenberg today. Guess what? You can watch the video of it here: https://t.co/G9DNo52B76#WCATL #WordPress #WordCamp #Meetup pic.twitter.com/tMFFjOd9ug

Presenting at WordCamp Atlanta is exciting for me because I’m from Atlanta and it is the first WordCamp I attended back in 2012, it was also my first time speaking! Six years have passed- the industry has changed and I have learned a lot in the past 6 years! I have learned so much about working within WordPress and have led multiple teams in different agencies. I’ve invented and iterated on process and workflows for myself as well as the team. I’m excited for the opportunity to take a step back and detail some of these procedures I’ve found most helpful.
