  • WordCamp Jacksonville - Is it Moral to Click Like? Ethics on the Web.

    Most professions have defined codes of ethics, and their educational programs have requirements of ethical coursework to get degrees. For some reason it’s not accepted that all computer science programs and developer bootcamps should have ethics courses. With the sheer amount of harm done by tech, this is mind boggling. This topic has picked up a lot of traction thanks to tireless work by a few individuals in our community, but ethical thinking should be in all of our minds while working. We’ll look at a few ethical frameworks and standards, as well as some examples for how they can be applied. It’s time for a discussion on ethics in the web, how we can individually apply ethical thinking in our work, and how to share this with others.

  • WordCamp Montclair 2019 - Let's Build Our First Plugin!

  • WordPress and the IndieWeb: Why You Should Own Your Voice

    WordPress can be used to start a blog, make a site for a club, or power a business, large or small. WordPress can also be used as a way to document your life, and save important things for later. You can bridge WordPress to other parts of the web that you use to store all of your data in one place, without having to worry about an app, hardware maker, or social media site going out of business and taking all of your content with it. I considered myself an interloper into the IndieWeb movement, until I realized that the movement — just like the technology that powers it — is decentralized. My habit of copying data created on other sites, as well as creating a website for my lifelogging, is part of what this community is about. Come learn about how you can use WordPress to power and amplify your voice online, and reclaim the web from the walled gardens for the user!
