Status Forward was honored to be a sponsor and presenter at the first-ever Asheville WordCamp. This event, which focused on WordPress design, development and strategy, exceeded expectations, selling out well ahead of final registration deadlines with 250 attendees.
After taking in great presentations in topics ranging from compelling content development to creating custom user experiences for client interface, Laurel and Nick took the mic to give a talk titled “Mind Your Media”. During their presentation they explored best practices for media management with the WordPress media library. Topics included: Image optimization (including a Photoshop demo of how to save an image for best web use), featured images, how to use the images in pages, posts and widget areas, useful image related plugins, image attributes, file types and a Q&A. Needless to say, there was a lot of preparation involved to give such a talk.
If you’d like to get the gist of the discussion (or if you happened to be there in person and you’re wanting a quick recap) feel free to download our presentation here. Thank you to all the presenters, attendees and volunteers that made this event possible. We can’t wait to see how WordCamp continues to grow in our area in the coming years.
