This past Monday, I presented, “Gamut: The Non-Template Template: PHP, Web BPs, and Maintaining 150 Unique Websites as if They Were One,” at HannonHill’s Cascade User Conference in Atlanta, GA. I shared our system for maintaining the lifecylce of our websites. The issues we’re solving include: how to handle 100s of sites in the system; how to design sites across a team in a scalable, maintainable way; how to be nimble; and how to take advantage of a templated system without having all of our sites look the same. Here are my slides:
I’ll be talking about SVG, which, like most anything else we do, isn’t straightforward to use. It takes practice to know when it’s appropriate, and some creativity to implement it well. SVG is a deep subject, but I’ll go through the basics and share what I’ve been doing with it with some live examples, and resources for diving in further.
Yesterday, I spoke at HighEdWeb NY 2015 in Ithaca, NY about Gamut. Everyone in the tech track was fantastic and I learned a lot from my higher ed colleagues. Here are the slides from my session entitled “Gamut: The Non-Template Template: PHP, Web BPs, and Maintaining 150 Unique Websites as if They Were One.”
What’s a shortcode?
WordPress shortcodes are custom, WordPress-specific tags that, when entered into the editor, can modify content, insert additional markup around existing content, or even pull in new content from elsewhere (recent posts, uploaded photos, etc). WordPress comes with a number of useful shortcodes built in. But sometimes it can be useful to define your own.
Last night I spoke at HVTech meetup in Kingston, NY about Gamut, our PHP framework and unified methodology for site building. I had a great time and enjoyed sharing the stage with my co-speakers Eberhardt Smith and Gary M Schuster. My presentation was powered by Reveal.js by the amazing Hakim El Hattab.
