It's conference season and we've Una Kravets and Krystal Higgins from An Event Apart Seattle on to talk about how they got into their "things" - the stuff they talk about, why they picked that topic, what to do if other people hop on your thing, and ideas to start giving talks at conferences.
Our guest is Rebekah Monson of Whereby.Us - a company that creates media and technology products that help people connect and engage in their cities. Is using WordPress Multisite a good idea? How can a small team manage editorial, tech, and community issues efficiently? Is there any profitability in local media?
It's a RAPIDFire mixed with a rant-i-fire episode: A ShopTalk Rant™ on WordPress and Dave's got a new computer. Also, how should you create responsive info-graphs and charts? Is there a way to web inspect canvas? Is Bootstrap accessible?
What do you need to consider when selling ads on your website? Inability to control your workflow? What is agile development exactly? When do you change a website or when should you redesign it? APIs for connecting all the things together. What should you name your thing? All this and more on this episode of ShopTalk!
We skipped the suits and jumped straight to your questions - including feedback on last episode's discussion of design being a solved problem, email sign up forms know you're already signed up, applying what you learn from programming to real life, Sass placeholder classes, and can the web get *any* slower?
